I want to hyperlink to a table via its key-field value (in this case serial number). I found I can do this via <key> in an API call, how about it a plain ole URL? I want to use this URL from our website.

Try this

mycompany.quickbase.com/db/xxxxxxxx?a=dr&key=SSSSSSSSS

where SSSSSS is the serial.  If you might have special characters or blanks in the serial, you will want to URLEncode it)

I tried key= but apparently I had other URL cruft that made it fail. Clean like you show works. Muchas gracias!
