Opening a link in new window in reports ( Text Box – Jump To URL) – SSRS

Even though there is no direct control to place a link in our SQL Server reports, we can use a textbox as a link by providing the navigation property of the text box.

When designing the report:

  • Open up a text box properties window
  • Go to Navigation
  • Enable Jump to URL
  • For the URL enter the URL you want to open from your report.

What if you want to open the link in a new window?? (And in some reports the previous case didn’t worked for me 😦 . So I did it in a round way 🙂 )

Enter the below script instead of entering the URL directly.

javascript:void(‘, ‘_blank’)
