Hi Team,

Bit of a curly one, that I have gone round and round on, and have come up blank on the net, so thought I would give this a go, before I concede, and bring in the big guns :)

Have a reporting service report that displays a value in the required text box

 

=First(Fields!Connote.Value)

 

Also configured on this text box currently is a hyperlink, which contains a join of data.

="http://www.nzcouriers.co.nz/nzc/servlet/TAndTServlet?page=1&customer_number=#######&consignment_id=" & Fields!Connote.Value &"&request_id=3"

“Customer_number########” in the hyperlink, is actually a number field, but removed for user security J

The issue I have is that now the client this report is run for uses multiple carriers to ship their product L and to make the report more generic for all of our clients, I need multiple possible Carriers, with different hyperlinks, or to exclude hyperlinking to all but one carrier.

The query returns carrier data, and this is displayed in the report =Fields!Carrier.Value

 

What I am trying to achieve is either

 

1. Text box contains hyperlink as above where carrier is NZC for example, and if Carrier is not NZC then don’t hyperlink

 

Or 2. Text Box contains hyperlink as above, if carrier is NZC, but has a different hyperlink, (also using Connote value in the hyperlink), if the carrier is PBT for example, and ultimately would like multiple different carrier vs hyperlink possibilities, as our clients use multiple carriers, all with different hyperlinks of course, and all requiring Connote Value in the hyperlink.

E.g. NZC, PBT, DHL, Fliway, FedEx etc.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated on how to set up the expression to achieve this, or if there is an alternative to configuring it this way, would appreciate suggestions.

Hi Team ICT :)

I have now accomplished outcome 1. which was to exculde the hyperlink if the most popular carrier was not used.

Did it like this

=IIF(Fields!Carrier.value ="NZC", "http://www.nzcouriers.co.nz/nzc/servlet/TAndTServlet?page=1&customer_number=######&consignment_id=" & Fields!Connote.Value &"&request_id=3",Nothing)

So at least now our clients are not seeing shoddy work, and the report looks tidy, but ideally would still like to provide excellent work, and have it hyperlink depending on different carriers, as per outcome 2 above :)

Any ideas anyone?
