    Links in html-files (Excel 2000 SP3 / Windows 2000)

    We use a Excel-list, published as html, as a portal to procedures and checklists. The Excel-list has hyperlinks (with http-adresses) to other Excel and Word-files (not converted to html).
    My problem is that I want to open the Excel or Word-files in a separate browser-window when I click the link in the Excel-list. This work fine when I work within the XLS file-format, but when the Excel-list is converted to html the links open in the same browser window.
    I have tryed to add the n-swich in the HYPERLINK fieldcode, but with no effect at all.
    Can anyone help me?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    I think this is controlled by the setting of "Browse in same window". This setting can be specified by each user for each file type (extension).

    Thanks for quick reply, Hans.
    I saw this suggestion in another thread here, but is has some major disadvantages.
    - It has to be applied to each and every user (more than 100)
    - It controls all surfing
    - But most important: I often link to bookmarks in the target file. When I change settings as u suggest, then the view of the target file is not set to the specified bookmark, but to the view as it was last saved.
    I'm looking for a way to define whether a given link should open in a new window or not !
