I'm sure this is a REALLY dumb question, but I can't find the answer anywhere. I just want to add a URL link to some text in a report. I can find HELP for all kinds of complicated things, but not a simple link. What am I missing?
Hi Pat. Its actually not a dumb question at all. FileMaker in text fields cannot easily handle URL links. A previous discussion dealt with this and has a solution, but its not as simple as you might have guessed. Text in text field as a link
Wow! I can’t believe FM can’t do such a simple thing. I figured it was so simple that no one bothered to document it and I was just the one in the dark.
Thanks for the link to the inelegant solutions, but they are all beyond my capabilities.
I’ll have to go back to the drawing board on this one.
The discussion is about "in text field". I'm not sure but you want to link in a "report", so are they same things?
You can make a button on the layout, and set it to "Open URL" with any label and URL.
Ah. I bet I can make that work with what I need to do. Thanks for the idea!
