This may seem like an unusual question for this forum, but I thought I'd ask anyway. It's for a dynamic hyperlink that we use in Discoverer and Portal to provide a one-click URL to users to open a shipping webpage via the Internet for an Oracle shipment record whose tracking number (airway bill #) is stored in EBS 11i. This dynamic tracking link works well for us today in EBS 11i and Portal 10gR2 for shipments via FedEx, UPS, and DHL as noted in my OAUG COL'06 white paper. But I'm having an issue with BAX Global due to the ASP functionality of their tracking website.

Here's the issue: We have a BAX Global shipment in our Oracle 11i system with a tracking number 'BKK00086205' stored in the airway bill column. I can use that tracking number on BAX's website to track the shipment; the tracking number is including in the dynamic URL:

http://www.baxglobal.com/defaultFrm.asp?pg=%2FTracking%2F&s=ShipmentTracking&trackby=H&trackbyno=BKK00086205&x=4& y=12

If I paste this URL into a new browser session (IE or Firefox), the website automatically gets diverted to the shipping carrier's US home ASP page:


But if I then paste in the dynamic URL with tracking number again from the US ASP home page, the browser successfully goes to the tracking page for that shipment.

Does anyone know how I can modify a dynamic URL to skip the initial step of diverting to the ASP website's homepage?

Best regards,
