URL action

  Asked By: Bhavika    Date: May 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2370

I have a field returned in the BDC with a URL (named url) such as www.microsoft.com or www.intel.com and I'd like to create a simple Action to open that web site. When I try the obvious of creating an action such as http://{0} or http://?url={0} where url is defined as the parameter. Sharepoint gives an error stating "Entity Id is invalid." Worse, the only way to recover is deleting the BDC application and recreating it. I also tried simply entering {0} as the URL. While this didn't cause an error, it also didn't open the web site when the action was selected in a BDC list.
