SSRS IncludeLink Field

    Question

  • Hi,

    I've got a data driven subscription set up in SSRS 2012 that works fine until I try and "Include Link" from my database. I've had a look in the SSRS Trace file and the following exception is thrown when I try and add google for example;

    "The value 'www.google.com' is not valid for setting 'Include Link'."

    Which begs the question, what are the valid values for 'Include Link?'  I can't find such a list anywhere in the SSRS documentation.

  • Hi Adam,

    As we know, the “Include link” option of a subscription only adds the link to the report itself. Currently, it is impossible to add a link to another report when creating a subscription. To add a link to another report, we have to do that within the report when designing the report.

    I would suggest you submitting a wish at https://connect.microsoft.com/sql.

  • Hi,

    When "Include link" is selected, the mail which is subscribed will have the link of the report.

    Report is even accessible from the link which has been included.


    Thanks in advance, Akhila Vasishta

  • Hi Akhila,

    I understand that but its not the answer. I want to be able to specify a link to another report in the email which I will retrive from my database.

  • Thanks Yin

    For anyone who finds this thread, my solution was to include the link to the other report in the "Comment" field of the subscription. I formatted the comment field using <br/> HTML tags to get line breaks to make it look neat.
