    Default Link within a RTF container problem

    Hi All,

    I am about to take on v12 but I currently have an issue with a report I created in v9. I know v9 is now for the history books, but I was hoping someonehyperlink_issue.jpg may have the answer to an issue I am having.

    I have a standard report based on a set, within that report I have an RTF placeholder and placed a field (type:Memo) within it that contains a url.

    When this report is viewed and you select the url http:// link, the link picks up the actual url plus all the text thereafter, making the link address unusable (see attached jpg).

    I have tried to create a calculated field and place a chr(10) or chr(13) or crlf(2) to attempt to force a carriage return/line feed/space after the url text, but this made no difference.

    Evidreq = evidence_request+chr(13)

    Does anyone have a solution?

    Thanks,

    Denis

    Perhaps extract_string would be of use to you?
