Changing columns hyperlinked in a list – SharePoint 2007

You’ll need SharePoint Designer.

First, in SharePoint, make a copy of the view of the list you want to modify.  Then open the new view in SharePoint Designer, right-click the ListViewWebPart tab and select ‘Convert to XSLT Data View’
Then if you right-click on one of the current title fields (the actual entries, not the header) and select Hyperlink properties it’ll show you the link to edit properties, probably something similar to

So if you now go to the hyperlink properties of the column you want to be the edit link and paste in the value taken from the other field then it should work.

Hopefully that makes sense 🙂

This has an adverse affect – removing the hyperlinks from the neighbouring column.  Does anyone know how to get around this?
