Using URL or Link from a QV Table

Hello,

In one table for each customer appears their e-mail.

Is it possible make clickable the e-mail address so that "outlook" starts directly ?

Hi,

Assuming the email addresses are in a field called "email", you can try something like this in the expression:

= email & '<url>mailto:' & email

This should open the default e-mail client. Remember to change the representation type to "Link" in the chart properties.

Representation can be changed from the "Expressions" tab in chart properties.

The format for the expression is 'Text for link' & '<URL>' & 'Static URL location' & field - Field is needed to customize the URL


It can be activated as a link in a straight/pivot table by going to the Expressions tab, selecting the expression, changing the Representation to link.  This option does not appear in all chart types.
