    Hyperlink to custom view of workbook (2002/XPSP3)

    Hi all,

    I have a workbook that I use to management and logging of issues.
    Over time the volume of data has grown, and it has become awkward to use the workbook as a communication method with other members of the team, as they cannot see the wood for the trees so to speak.
    The content I want to disseminate is easily found with autofilter, however I would like to ensue that all the team does view the same data.

    My question therefore is, is it possible to open the workbook with a custom view enabled.
    Ideally this behaviour would not be dependent on the last saved state of the workbook. Also different views could be required.

    i was hoping that there was a startup switch that I could include in the hyperlink that would achieve this, otherwise I suppose I will need to add some buttons.

    There is no command line switch to activate a custom view. If you want to enforce one custom view when the workbook is opened, you can use code in the Workbook_Open event procedure. Otherwise, you'll have to provide buttons to activate different views.

    Thanks Hans,

    You confirmed what I suspected.
    The event/button scenario will still be easier than training the group in custom views.
