Hi,

I have a requirement link, when i click on column in Yellwofin report, one of the word document of pdf file which is available in windows location should be open. For example, i have a word document that is exist in my desktop or Yellowfin install-able location Yellowfin 7.3\appserver\webapps\ROOT\xyz.docx. This document should be open/execute when i click on an item in the Yellwofin Report.


Is there any way to achieve this in Yellwofin.


Thanks

Hello Venu,

Yes this should be possible by formatting the column in question to 'Link To URL' format:

4951171862ebc2df511d878ae8248e1a

If the example field data was xyz, clicking it would then open the file you mention. Note the 'URL Type' setting should be set to 'Local' if you're pointing to inside the Yellowfin ROOT, as in your scenario. You can review the 'Format Options' section on this Wiki Page for a definition of each setting.

Does this help?

Thanks,

Ryan
