http://companyesite.com/account/customerhome.aspx?accid=6585767

 

Also, if possible, can this be done so URL opens in a separate Window/Tab? I normally do this in SSRS reports via using : 

 

="javascript:void(window.open('URL...

Re: Display short URL

You can use the concatenate function and create a new column CONCATENATE("http://companyesite.com/account/customerhome.aspx?accid=",[account_id]) and create a new field. You can then embed this in a table view and then enable the URL icon in the formatting section of the table.

 

The article below will give you a detailed visual explanation of how to enable the URL Icon in your table which will replace the long text into a nicely formatted icon which the users can click.

By default the link opens in a new tab so you dont have to worry about that either.
