Hyperlinking a Dimension Value to a web URL

I have an expressionless straight with a number of dimensions.  I want to be able to click on dimension value and hyperlink this to a URL where it inserts the value of the dimension in the URL field.  I have seen an example which uses a textbox for hyperlinking but not based on a dimension (Field) value.

Is this achievable in QV and if so how?

Regards.

Chris

When a qlik Yes, the URL does not launch.  I am not sure why.

Google is having not trouble in getting launched:

Modified Tamil's script to add google's link:

Data:

LOAD * INLINE [

    Brand, Link, Sales

    BMW, https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl, 10

    Audi, https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl, 20

];

and this seems to be working for me as well:

Data:

LOAD * INLINE [

    Brand, Link, Sales

    BMW, http://worldwide.espacenet.com/, 10

    Audi, http://worldwide.espacenet.com/, 20

];

Many thanks Sunny, but my link is not Google, it is:

http://worldwide.espacenet.com/searchResults?ST=singleline&locale=en_EP&submitted=true&DB=worldwide.... & PatentNumber

Where the PatentNumber is a field in my application and it searches the url for this PatentNumber

Thanks Sunny, it was a machine problem.  I am running the application of MacBook with Parallels.  When i transferred the app to a windows machine, the link opened in internet explorer.

I do not why the hyperlink is not working in parallels desktop.
