I am using sp2010. I have a document library with some columns. I see the column name with a link to the document. But I would like to implement this on the title column. Is it possible to implement a link to the document from the title column?
when uploading documents there is already an ootb column that is called Name that links to the document, either in the default view change the name as visible (ticked) and hide the title (untick). That will only show the name.
You can have both shown, to make the first column as clickable (linked) than within the view also set the Name column and 1 on the list.
You can't do exactly what you're asking out of the box. You could, however, use SharePoint Designer to create a DataView that has a column containing the Name hyperlink and the Title text value. If you want the clickable link to be available in standard views, you could create a new hyperlink field using a workflow to set the value from Title and Path.
- Create a hyperlink field
- Create a workflow that runs on create and change (assuming users are allowed to change Title and that the hyperlink field will need to be updated at that time)
- Set a variable to [%Workflow Context:Current Item URL%], [%CurrentItem:Title%]
- Set your hyperlink field to your variable
