Launch a Hyperlink that includes data from the Data Table

I have a data table that includes in the Title field a string that can be used to help make up a URL to access another application.

 

How can I get this Title sting into a URL from a search?

 

This is a people search so I will get a result returned that includes the Title String and I want to build a button that will launch the URL to the outside app with that string attached

 

Goal is to have a button that when clicked will open URL http://MY_OTHER_APP/Person.asp?cid=%Title%

 

E.g returned result has a Title value of 100 so I want the Launch URL to be

 

http://MY_OTHER_APP/Person.asp?cid=100

 

 

Launch("http://MY_OTHER_APP/Person.asp?cid=") opens the app but I can't figure out how to inject the Results string.

Re: Launch a Hyperlink that includes data from the Data Table

Create a global variable containing the full URL with the variable data that you want to use, then launch using that variable instead of a literal. Here's an example from one of my apps where I launch another application to display a specific asset.

Re: Launch a Hyperlink that includes data from the Data Table

My final string was Set( URLText, "http://MYAPP/PersonID.asp?cid=" & DataCardValue1 );Launch(URLText)

 

Where DataCardValue1 was the returned string from the search

 

Thank you so much!
