[SOLVED]Parameters not passing in drill down on IE but working on Edge and Chrome
  
 TYPE=DATA,
     COLUMN=N8,
     WHEN = N2 NE '&WORKTYPE',
     DRILLMENUITEM='Vector Detail',
     FOCEXEC=/WFC/Repository/OPERA/Market_Dashboard/DrillDowns/CCM_VectorReport.fex( \
     REGION=N3 \
     MARKET=N4 \
     WORKTYPE=&WORKTYPE.QUOTEDSTRING \
     LOCATION= N2 \
     BU = '&BU'\
     ),
     TARGET=_blank,

$



It builds the drillmenuitem on both IE and Chrome. However, it fails to pass the parameters to the hyperlink in IE11.

This is working fine on Chrome and Edge.

Chrome: http://***/ibi_apps/WFServlet?...&LOCATION=DEL&BU=CEN

IE: http://***/ibi_apps/WFServlet?...M_VectorReport.fex&0

I also faced this problem
This is a Compatibility View Settings issue with IE11

Be sure to uncheck :
- Display intranet sites in Compatibility View
- Use Microsoft compatibility lists

The drilldown will work even with these options checked but not if you have a "DRILLMENUITEM=…"

Mark your calendars. The new Edge built on the Chromium Engine is set for GA release on January 15, 2020. I have downloaded and I am using the RC Beta now and loving it. It has an Internet Explorer mode that uses the compatability list as to when it is used inside Edge. That way you can get the best of both worlds, in one browser. A modern browser using modern specs that you can still use with Legacy applications that require the use of IE. More info here: https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/enterprise
