I was at a client and the question came up “Can I jump to another web based tool from my report?”. The answer seemed obvious … YES. What was not straightfoward was how to open the other web based tool in another window. Here is a solution a found (someone else’s idea) that helped.
When designing the report:
- Open up a text box properties window
- Go to Navigation
- Enable Jump to URL
Please note that you should replace the http://www.microsoft.com with the URL you would like to launch. Also note, that the second parameter of ‘_blank’ is the standard window.open target meaning a new window.
