How do I add a hyperlink to D365FO SSRS report?

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Hi, I have a problem adding a (working) custom URL hyperlink to SSRS report which will be run from AX.

I tried the simplest report I can think of - a report with one field which should also be a hyperlink to fixed URL. Like this:


After compiling and running the report results look like this:

1) mouseover on the field in report viewer shows a (non working) link to http://[devserver]/Reporting/


2) in report saved as .pdf or .xlsx there is no hyperlink

3) report saved as .doc (word) seems to be the only working format with a correct hyperlink


Am I missing something?  Or is there another way to make hyperlinks reliably work in reports saved as XLS formats? (In real application the hyperlinks would of course come from a datasource field and would link to product websites.)

Thanks in advance for any help.

    Ok, so for everyone with the same problem - the only solution working for me was to use HTML notation in the field value and leave the Action set to "None".

    Hyperlinks done this way work fine even in exported PDFs, Excels, etc... (also be sure to include the protocol - i.e. "http://" or "https://" - in the reference, otherwise the link won't work)
