      I am using vLookup to create a child record from a parent, passing data from the parent to the child. Data passes as expected, except for Hyperlink fields. See my attachments for what the parent field looks like, then how it passes the data to the child field.

      Disregard this post – it would be better if it can be fixed, it does not allow you to move forward on initial save because of the invalid values.

      Hi,
      Which version of vLookup are you using? – I did address a problem with hyperlink columns in v2.255 frontend and v2.252 backend (December 14, 2015).

        I am using 2.258 frontend and 2.254 backend. Should I go back to the versions you listed?

      No. Are you creating the vLookup child from the parent DispForm or EditForm?

        The parent is NewForm.

        I see this behaviour too

        parent (library) is dispform = child hyperlink fields populated correctly
        parent (library) is editform = same behaviour as Christine is seeing

        SP 2010
        DFFS frontend v4.365 BETA 4
        DFFS backend v4.365 BETA 3
        vLookup frontend v2.259
        vLookup backend v2.254

        If it helps…these are the pair of fields while in editform;

        
        
        		<td valign="top" class="ms-formbody">
        		<!-- FieldName="Hyperlink"
        			 FieldInternalName="Hyperlink"
        			 FieldType="SPFieldURL"
        		  -->
        			<span dir="none">

      Hi,
      Sorry for the delay. I will fix this during the weekend and post an updated version to fix the “transfer hyperlink” from NewForm to a child vLookup items.
