Appending field value to QlikView report URL

Hello,

A fellow developer wishes to provide a link to my QVW in his app - he wants to filter the dataset in my QVW based on an ID value that he wants to pass to the report, via the URL - here's an example of the URL:

http://qv1/Qvplugin/opendoc.htm?document=qvfolder%2FMyReport.qvw

The developer wishes to reference MyReport.qvw and filter the dataset on a field's value, e.g., userID - so, when the user clicks on the link, MyReport.qvw is opened in AccessPoint and automatically filtered on the userID value that was appended to the link. The MyReport.qvw URL that would be embedded in his app would look like this (where xxxxxx is the userID value):

http://qv1/Qvplugin/opendoc.htm?document=qvfolder%2FMyReport.qvw&userID%5Cxxxxxx

Is it possible to append a value to a QVW URL in order to filter the dataset on that value?

Many thanks,

VB

I don't think that the IE plugin will support this, if you can use Ajax client, here is a document that describes possible URL modifications:

Thanks so much - I am using the plugin but quickly found that it doesn't work with parameters; thank you for saving me a lot of time.

Many thanks Petter - that discussion showed me the syntax I needed.
