The BookmarkLink element is used to provide a link to a report item that contains a matching value in the Bookmark element belonging to that report item. The value for the BookmarkLink element must evaluate to the ID of a bookmark within the report. If no matching ID is found, the link is not included in the rendered report. If the bookmark is hidden, the report server displays the beginning of the page that contains the bookmark. If multiple bookmarks with the same ID are found, the report server displays the first bookmark found with that ID.

The Action element, which is the parent of BookmarkLink, must contain one and only one child element: Hyperlink, Drillthrough, or BookmarkLink. If you use either Hyperlink or Drillthrough as a child of Action, you cannot use BookmarkLink.

The BookMarkLink element is not supported in page headers or footers.
