Lookup to a Hyperlink field, URL, in Links list

  Asked By: Anushka    Date: Aug 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6309

I am trying to create a lookup column in a document library that looks up the
values in the URL field of Links list. The lookup values show as url
(http://Sitename.com) instead of description (Sitename!).

Is there a way through schema files or through User Interface, or any other idea
on how to accomplish the above?

I have thought of computed field, which I could not add to links list through UI
and could not add it through schema as Links list is part of out of the box
publishing site definition file and we don't want to modify that.

Creating a custom links list is one option but I am looking to get a workaround
with the existing Links list.
