    Multiple Hyperlinks in Tagged Text file

    fusionis

      Hi,

       

      I'm currently exporting a contact directory database from sql into tagged text so I can import it into InDesign and format it up automatically and unltimately export as pdf.

      So far I have got all the formatting working exactly as I want it to by reverse enginerring an exported file, but now I want to make all the e-mail addresses into hyperlinks.

       

      I;ve included below an example of what i'm now importing into InDesign, all works and is formatting ok but the hyperlinks aren't being transferred properly.

       

      Please could somebody advise me on the correct syntax on how to do the above, as I've read the tagged text user guide which gave me the headings to use but now an example of how to make a hyperlink.

       

      One thing worth mentioning is that I am creating the number in the "HyperlinkDestKey" sequentially when outputting the text, not sure if this might have some bearing on the problem. Also open to any suggestions on trimming unncessary tags from the hyperlink too.
