Data view ows_linktitle not showing as a link on webpart

  Asked By: Jakob    Date: Apr 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2149

I have a data view of an announcements list. I've include the
ows_linktitle field on my dataview but when I add it to my page it does
not show as a link but just text. I think this may be because I have it
formatted as Rich Text. I tried changing it to hyperlink but I'm not
sure how to configure hyperlink to pull the correct url.

The easiest way to get an example of the formatting is to add  a normal
list view  web part to the page, then use SPD to convert the list  View to
a Data View.

I followed your suggestion and the hyperlink  address it is showing  on
a normal list view  web part is {$URL_Display}?ID={@ID}.

I tried to change my Title to a hyperlink format and inserted this
code in my already created data  view on my other site but received an
error. I don't know if it matters but my created data view is using
XML web services to point to a list  on another site collection.

Sounds like you aren't getting the same set of fields back from the web
service - make sure your field  mappings are correct  and you are using
the correct @ vs. $ notation on the lookups.

Haven't had any luck getting this to work. Would the {$URL_Display}
even work if my dataview  will be on a different site collection then
the list  I'm connecting to?

Assuming that is one of the data  columns being returned by the web
service, and it's an absolute URL, yes. If not, you need to either
replace or construct it in the xsl depending on what you do have
