    Instead of having a Formula text field to make it as a hyperlink to another external linked page, you can create a Formula URL field with the "Display as a button" unchecked.




    Output with F12 Inspect Element set to the hyperlink displayed:

    Hi Dinesh.  I am hijacking this thread;  I have a similar issue where I want to load an external PHP page and pass a field value into the URL as well.  The solution above is not working for me.  Also, is there any way to add this into an already existing "edit record' button?

    To pass information to one of your code pages you can use a formula similar to this:

    href=\"javascript:window.location.href = 'https://yourdomain.quickbase.com/db/yourdbid?a=dbpage&pageID=5&parent="&[Record ID#]&"'\"

    Then you can receive and do what you'd like in your php page.
