Creates a hyperlink that opens an XLCubed Web report and optionally sets web parameters.
Use the Insert Formula > XL3WebReportLink menu or ribbon item to insert the formula using a wizard.
XL3WebReportLink( Report, [Link Text], [Link Type], [Param1], [Value1],…, [Param13], [Value13] )
|Report||A piece of text, indicating the relative path of the report|
|Link Text||The jump text or numeric value that is displayed in the cell. If Link Text is omitted, the cell displays the full web address as the text|
|Link Type|| The type of link. Only used from the XLCubed Web Edition
|Param1,…, ParamN||The name of the web parameter where the following Value is placed when the link is followed|
|Value,…, ValueN||The value that will passed to the corresponding web parameter|
Create an XLCubed workbook with three XL3WebReportLink statements as below:
Each link has a corresponding XL3WebReportLink:
Test111 =XL3WebReportLink("test111.xml", "test111", 1, "closecopies", "true")
Web1 =XL3WebReportLink("web1.xml", "Web1", 0, "text", $G$2, "closecopies", "true")
Publish this workbook and open in Web Edition:
Click on a link and the report opens.
Special Parameter Names
You can configure the workbook using parameters with reserved names. You do not add these using the Web Parameters screen, you simply specify them in the formula.
XL3WebReportLink(…[Standard parameters]…, [SpecialParameterName], [Value] )
|XL3ActiveWorksheetName||The worksheet to display when the report link is opened|
|CloseCopies||If set to true then when you click on a hyperlink to run subsequent reports, you will find the previous report has been closed. This stops the user having many windows open that all require closing manually.|
|XL3ReportType|| If specified, then the report will be downloaded instead of displayed in the browser.
|XL3Tooltip||The associated value is used as the tooltip. This is available from (Version 9).|
In Version 7.5 a relative path can be used by using the syntax "./Book2.xml" - this would load the report "Book2" from the same folder as the report containing the XL3WebReportLink.
