    Default HTML Link on Report PDF

    I am storing a URL in a character field of length 255. I want to put text on a report that links to the URL. Then when I print the report to PDF and send that report to a customer, I want the customer to be able to click on the link text in PDF and go to the URL. I can't seem to find a way to do this. Anyone have any ideas?

    FWIW

    I have not seen that controlled by Alpha or the PDF generating software.

    I have done that with Adobe Acrobat Pro's option to generate links..

    And I would imagine you can't control what pdf viewer customers use.
    Either send a text attachment or think of putting the URL in the email body.

    I just tested a report with a url in a field to an Alpha report, and all of the URL's are active when I save the report to PDF.
