Passing variables via URL

Hi All,

I am trying to set up an application that opens an existing dashboard to a specific page based on user selections.  the pages are all hidden and made visible via a variable.

The URL I am using is http://*********/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc.htm?document=ACE%20Dashboard.qvw&host=QVS%40srapp55&Sheet=SH03&v_...

The variable part is the v_ShowSheet=page%201

Am I doing something wrong to assign the variable a value to enable the sheet to be visible or am I trying something that just wont work?

Many thanks

I guess you can't assign a value to a variable as URL parameter but only values to fields.

Ah.  That would put a spanner in my works.

you should use the GetFieldSelections(fieldName) function to set your variable value.

Jarrad, found the following post after a bit of searching, believe variables are not possible....
