Open a link from Power Bi

Hello, I have in a column the address of files (example: G:\home\USERS\Informatica\alta.pdf)

And the idea I have is to create in Power BI a table with a column with this address and when you click on it, you can open the document.

Do you know how I could do it?

Hello @Syndicate_Admin@jjmontoliu 


You can use the Web URL feature.


1. First, add a table or matrix visual and add the column with the URLs to the visual.
2. Then, go to the column settings in the visual, find the option for the URL, and set it to "Web URL." This will turn the text in that column into clickable links.


Should you have any questions or further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
