Hi, 

my organisation has a library that stores documents. Sometimes we need to reference another document in another library. We use a lookup column for that purpose. Now the link opens the item instead of the document.

 

The only way I can think of to create this is to use a hyperlink field and copy the link from the support library and paste it in the target library. This will open up the document but its cumbersome and prone to errors. 

 

Does anybody has a solution for this?

 

KR, Manfred
