Hi,
 
I'm building a web page and would like to set up a link to an Excel spreadsheet. However, I'd like the link to point to a SPECIFIC worksheet inside the Excel workbook. Example; Test.xls (sheet 5). What code can I use to accomplish this ? I'm currently using the following HTML: HREF="C:\HTML DESIGN\Test.xls">
 
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks,
Paul

I believe if you save the excel document whilst viewing worksheet 5, then the page will open that worksheet by default.... I'm going to check now...

<a href=file:///C|/HTML DESIGN\Test.xls>Test.xls</a>
I don't think it's possible to open a document at a given sheet

cybernietic, if you read the rest of the post you could have saved all that typing.

I think I know the answer:
If you are using MS Excel2000 follow the below steps:

1) Open your Excel (xls) file.
2) Select the WorkSheet you want to put on website.
3) From 'File' menu select 'Save as Web Page..."
4) You will see two Save options. Select 'Selection: Sheet'
5) And save it with a desired name. Just link to this htm page instead of linking to xls file.

I hope this helps...

Microsoft documentation says:
<A HREF="C:\HTML DESIGN\Test.xls#Sheet5">Sheet 5</HTML>

and then you define that name in a cell on that sheet.

I've never got it to work.
