Hi, I have created a relational database to display a log of details. The details are quiet extensive so for the sake of displaying them I have this condensed table as you will see below. What I want to do is link from each row to a page of its own which displays the entry in its entirety.

I have not defined a function for $Link, this is the part I am having trouble with. Any ideas on how I do this? Thanks

<div class="typography">
<th>First name</th>
<% if CallEvent %>
<% control CallEvent %>
<td><a href="$Link">Full details</a></td>
<% end_control %>
<% else %>
<td colspan="2">No records</td>
<% end_if %>

Zen Monkey you're the man! I'll be honest I've not seen anything like that after scouring the internet. I find SS bits really useful, the tutorials and snippets are very practical.

Thanks again
