I'd like to enter a SharePoint list item in detail using a Hyperlink. I've already figuered out, that it works with something like


But in my Scenario i'd like to enter the detailed view of the list element with only knowing it's title. For using the title column as a "Primary key" I've set it unique. When applying the column title to the Hyperlink it looks like


But then I just get the empty Display Form. Does anyone know how to solve this or has a different approach for that?

  • Is your url in the format SharePointUrl/site/lists/listname/DispForm.aspx?title=ABC001 ?? EDIT: the only reason it would be returning an empty mask, is an incorrect is that the value aren't matched exactly, I can only suggest checking the values match like-for-like :/ – George Grainger Jan 27 '16 at 10:11

  • Testing it myself, I created two items with the same title to see if it would cause a conflict, it doesn't, but will bring back the item with the lesser ID value always. Here's the url I've been using: http://mysharepointsite.local/sites/testsite/Lists/Test%20List/dispForm.aspx?title=TEST 10 – George Grainger Jan 27 '16 at 13:01

    because i don't want to enter 400 individual links and the SharePoint created ID is not directly connected with "id" I've got in the other systen – Sebastian Jan 27 '16 at 14:18
