I am creating a ss where I have hyperlinks. (A whole column is links).

I want the links to open in Avant Browser, instead of IE6. I've set Avant as the default. I've gone into my computer>tools>file types and looked, and all http, html, ect types are set to open with Avant.

What am I missing?! It's driving me bonkers. The only reason behind it is that IE6 is not compatible with the site that the links are associated with, otherwise, I wouldn't care.

Thanks,
Erin

After looking thru Excel to an extent ive come up with 2 things.

1. Due to the fact that IE6 is Microsoft and Excel is Microsoft, something tells me that would be one heck of a workaround to have the links open in another browser.

2. Excel does however have VB Scripting, so possibly someone (wish I could write it) could write you a Macro so that when you click a link it opens it with your Avant browser instead.

Sorry I can't help anymore more than this, perhaps someone else sees something i did not.
