Question Logical link to another database

Love logical linking in UR!
I would like to achieve a logical link to an item in another database now. According to UR help it should be possible.
I have managed to insert a hyperlink into the text of the item, that leads to an item in another db, but I fail to create an item that is a logical link to another item in another db.
May you save me once again, pls?
Many thanks in advance!

Logical links are inherently specific to a single database, but you can create an external link to an item another database.

To create an item in UR that links to an item (source DB) in another database (destination DB), you can:

1) From Windows Explorer, copy and paste the source .urd file with the item to link, and paste into the Data Explorer of the destination DB.
2) In the source DB, select the item to link to and choose Item | Copy Item Command-Line
3) In the destination DB, paste into the URL attribute of the item created in step #1
4) To open the link in the source DB, from the Destination DB, select the item and press Ctrl+J or Item | Open Document
