Using SharePoint Designer 2010 I created a Linked Data Source that merges two lists. Then I inserted a Data View and select the linked data source I created. The problem is that I want the Title to be a link to display the selected item, but when I insert the LinkTitle field it does not include a link, just the Title text.

Solved this by using one of these links with the title.

Link to view item in popup window

<a href="javascript:OpenPopUpPage('{@FileDirRef}/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}');"><xsl:value-of select="@Title"/></a>

View item without popup. The GoToLink adds "source" to URL so it will return to the site with the link.

<a href="{@FileDirRef}/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}" ONCLICK="GoToLink(this);return false;"><xsl:value-of select="@Title" /></a>
