How do I create a delete record link that can be clicked on from a report?

Just create a Formula URL field and use the following as its formula:

"javascript:if(confirm ('Are you sure you want to delete this record?')){location.assign('/db/" & Dbid() & "?act=API_DeleteRecord&rid=" & [Record ID#]& "&rdr=" & URLEncode(URLEncode(URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=q&qid=7")) & "')}"

You'll have to change the seven character "7" in the above formula to the qid of the report that you want to return to. To learn about qids please read the following:
