When you add a link to a page or a table, an entry is created in the Record Link system table. Each entry is given an ID.

The URL can be a link to a website, a file stored on the local computer or on a remote computer, or a link to a Dynamics NAV page.


In this example, you get the customer record that has a primary key number of 15000 and then add the specified URL to the Record Link table for that customer. You can then view the link in the Links FactBox on the Customer list or Customer card pages. This example requires that you create the following variables.
