Linked Reports and Drill Through Links - Report Manager ISSUE

Post by TWlrZSBMeW » Sat, 19 Mar 2005 07:20:05


We have 2 reports:

/All Reports/Master Report
/All Reports/Detail Report

We have linked them to an individual's folder:

/Users/Vince Carter/Master Report
/Users/Vince Carter/Detail Report

Problem: Sometimes the drill-through link in the Master Report in Vince's
folder is properly linked to the Detail Report in the same folder
(/Users/Vince Carter/Detail Report). Other times, that same hyperlink is
linked to the original report (/All Reports/Detail Report).

Clue: When it is linked incorrectly, if you simply open the properies tab
and then return to the view tab, the problem goes away.

Something is seriously wrong with the Report Manager. Please help!

Thanks,
Mike

We just found the work-around for this inconsistency. The trick is to
specify the path to the detail report in the "Jump to Url" field:

=Globals!ReportFolder & "/Detail Report"

Using the Globals!ReportFolder variable forces the Report Manager to always
link to the report in the current folder. We still have no idea why this is
required though.
