Execute program based on user click on value in row

Is there a way to trigger a program or web URL to be executed when the user clicks on a value in a table in a powerbi report?  It would have to pass the cell value as a parameter to be useful.

You can't currently use tables to filter other results in Power BI - i.e. sleect one row/cell.  Two options that might help:

  1. Generate a hyperlink column in the table for the cell value (of each row), though the user would then need to click the web URL and it couldn't trigger an executable - see https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-hyperlinks-in-tables/; or
  2. Pass a fully filtered dataset to an R visual and have that do the work, though you'd need to use something other than a table to filter down to one row/cell.
