Re: Access SalesLogix account from Crystal Reports

Does anyone know if this solution will work for Saleslogix 6.2.6 with crystal 8.5?

Thanks,

Renee

Re: Access SalesLogix account from Crystal Reports

Ive just tried it and it does'nt work - I believe the reason is because the account hyperlink function used within the Crystal formula is not available within SLX v6.2

 

Chr(34) & "slx:account/" + {ACCOUNT.ACCOUNTID}& Chr(34)

 

SalesLogix Client v7 +

 

Edit  - Copy Link to Clipboard -> slx:ACCOUNT/A6UJ9A0001F9

Thank you for trying.  We will hopefully be upgrading to 7.5 in the near future.  I guess this will have to wait until the upgrade is done.

The SalesLogix URL Link can be added to 6.2

Correct. Most of us in the BP community have known about this (good) "hack" for a long time.

 

Ryan's article documents it very well.
