Hi all, and welcome to my first ever blog post! *cheers*
For my first blog, I thought I'd share something I came across while working on an InfoPath 2007 browser form one day. I was working on a form that references a Clients list, which includes a 'Client Site' column – which references the team site for that client. Now, as you may know, in SharePoint there is the hyperlink column type which was what was being used for this Client Site column – obvious right?
Problem was, the dynamic links in the form kept showing like this:
I also noticed that when hovering over the dynamic hyperlink it shows the following URL:
Well, going on a hunch, it turns out that InfoPath browser forms don't like referencing hyperlink-type columns for dynamic hyperlinks.
The workaround I found was to make the column a single line of text column type – links work perfectly now J
