Im trying to create a graphic as a hyperlink. I tried using OutputLink and OutputLinkF and the OutGraphic - the png file is imported as a common file. I can get the graphic to sucessfully show in the Word document but it wont give it the link. I tried using text and it worked, so the issue is only the graphic.


Does anyone know of an alternative?


Thank you

As far as I know there is no way to connect a graphic in Word with a hyperlink. The OutputLink + OutputLinKF methods support text attached with a hyperlink only.

I had the similar problem an solved it the following: exported the graphic to Word, then (next line) exported a text ("click here to open the image") with a hyperlink that points to the png file on the file share.

Hope that helps for you as well...


Cheers, Christian
