Hyperlink from custom list portlet

Hi there, I'm having a little trouble trying to get a hyperlink with a datasource working correctly.

The custom list portlet scans the knta_users table and returns resource information.

specifically I'm trying to link from a column that returns knta_users.username to the resource information page for that user
using hyperlink source column

Details are :
column type "hyperlink"
Hyperlink type "custom hyperlink"
Entity ID column : "knta_users.user_id"
Hyperlink : "/itg/resource/OpenResource.do?resourceID=[PRT.ENTITY_ID]"

From my reading of the manuals, the token should resolve to the resource_id.

Instead it is passed straight through and a java null pointer exeception error page is raised.

Anyone have any clues ?

Re: Hyperlink from custom list portlet

Try this token:
[DSH.PRT.ENTITY_ID]

That is what I am using in my custom hyperlinks and it is working OK. I am using PPM 7.1 - I think the token may have changed since 6.0.
