AIM offers users the facility to add hyperlinks (such as e-mail addresses, web addresses and local files locations) to your reports.



Clicking the the Links button loads the Hyper-link form.


NOTE: Hyper-links are a very efficient way to links to your report as the attached fie is NOT embedded with the data container, merely the link, the downside of this is that links can change or be broken.


Hyper-links provide single-click access to Web pages through a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or to files through a name in UNC (universal naming convention) format.


Used for storing links to files on:

your computer (a file name);

a network (a UNC name);

the internet (a URL address).

A hyperlink entry contains three parts separated by hash signs (#).

The template is:     display text # file name # any reference within the file

Opening the Links Manager allows you to browse and select your links.


Here are some examples of manual entries that may help show how this links works:
