I stand corrected. If the links are defined upon report creation then it operates just fine. However, if I create a new link within said report then item 5 occurs.
Well what is the difference in how the working link is defined by the column settings compared to the link settings of the non working link?
Only the settings in the subgroup Link are of importance.
Sounds like the session id of the non working link is hard coded instead of using the substitution string APP_SESSION or SESSION.
Read the chapter Application Builder Concepts for more information on session management, the url syntax and substitution strings.
Thanks for the suggested reading, but the Data Reporter app is locked and has to remain so in order not to effect future upgrades. So, I believe this means that I cannot make any changes to it even if I wanted to. It already uses APP_SESSION so I do not believe it is hard-coded.
