Q: Dynamic Links in Task List

Q: Dynamic Links in Task List

Q: Dynamic Links in Task List

I would like to make the URLs attached to Tasks in the Task list dynamic... specifically, I'd like to add the Active Project ID as a URL paramater.

In other words, I'd like a URL like this:
where ## is the active project ID.

Thanks in advance,


RE: Q: Dynamic Links in Task List

This is what the macro recorder got for entering a URL in a text1 column:
Sub Macro1()
' Macro Macro1
' Macro Recorded Sun 7/28/02
    SetTaskField Field:="Text1", Value:="http://www.test.com#1";, TaskID:=1, ProjectName:="Project1"
    SelectTaskField Row:=2, Column:="Text1", RowRelative:=False
End Sub

So... you should be able to set up a loop and simply concatenate what you want to the default URL.
