I see you have excluded the entry Link Type [Event] * from the default
This entry makes sure the report will only have links to Events, not links
to other data, like places or place names or contacts.
The asterisk at the end of the entry means the column will be excluded from
printing, it will only be used for generating the report.
Hope this helps,
