Hyperlink to Create a new Opp isn't working RRS feed

  • Question

  • This might be in the wrong forum, but I'll try here as it's to do with linking to CRM.

    I've got an SSRS report which I developed in VS 2008. I've got a link in the report that opens a new opportunity form. I'm opening it using javascript.open in the expression for the textbox the link is in. I can get all other links to other entities in CRM working - they open in new windows, some fields pre-populated etc., but when I try to open a newopportunity, I'm getting the following error message:

    Here's the URL I'm trying to open:


    This works fine when I copy & paste it into a browser, however, when I put it within a javascript.open command, it just produces the error above. I can open a Contact URL no proble, also using javascript.open, so I don't know why an Opportunity URL won't work. Is there some sort of difference with Opportunities? I've also put the complete URL with the javascript.open command into a html page, behind a button. When I click on the button, the URL works there too, but not in the report!

    Here's the URL within the javascript.open command:

    javascript:void(window.open('http://vulcanbasevm/Martha/main.aspx?etc=3&extraqs=%3f_CreateFromId%3d%257b753D2C9E-5F2C-E411-9D8C-00155D3FE201%257d%26_CreateFromType%3d2%26etc%3d3&pagetype=entityrecord','_blank','resizable=1','height=800', 'width=250'))

    Here's my test code in which the URL also works:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
        <title>Test Page</title>
    <input id="OpenOppButton" type="button" value="Open Opportunity" 
    onclick = "javascript:void(window.open('http://vulcanbasevm/Martha/main.aspx?etc=3&extraqs=%3f_CreateFromId%3d%257b753D2C9E-5F2C-E411-9D8C-00155D3FE201%257d%26_CreateFromType%3d2%26etc%3d3&pagetype=entityrecord','_blank','resizable=1','height=800', 'width=250'))"
    <br />

All replies

  • Has anyone any ideas on this? I'm completely stuck. The URL works perfectly from within a html page, and when I copy and paste it into a browser. All other URLs fro other entities work (except activities actually!), but I've tested contacts & leads so far and they both work perfectly using javascript.open

    Thank you.
