Unable to create URL link for shared path location in Qlikview chart expression

Hi All,

Below is table my requirement and I want to view shared path location files in URL link and when I hit that link documents like PDF, DOC etc needs to be open on Qlikview chart selection

IDFiles Path
1\\Location\files\A.pdf
1\\Location\files\B.pdf
1\\Location\files\C.pdf
2\\Location\files\D.doc
2\\Location\files\e.doc

 

I have taken ID as dimension and files path as expression in Qlikview chart. For files path expression I have given "Link" as representation also but still URL is not displaying.

FYI...... Files path column is created in SQL database as varchar format. All users has access to shared path to view files.

Thanks in Advance.

 

Thanks,

Avinash

Hi,

Many thanks for your reply,

Can you please write expression for the above table. I am not getting output for your message in my chart, it is showing empty.

I tried two ways with representation as Link in chart expression

=Fieldname  &'<URL>'&  Fieldname

='<URL>'& Fieldname

 

Please help me on this

Thanks,

don't forget file://  before your URL

 

so something like

='<URL>file://'& Fieldname
