How do I add link to a windows .net form to an excel spreadsheet?  I want the user to be able to click some text and then open up the excel document.  For example, I have the following spreadsheet on my local drive which I want to add to the windows forms C:\Southern\Apps\ESW\FS2sourceCode\FS2WinFormApp\Reports\Braising Pan Operating Cost Tool.xls.  When the users clicks "Braising Pan Operating Calculator" on the windows form the Excel document will open.

You can launch the excel file this way:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("C:\Southern\Apps\ESW\FS2sourceCode\FS2WinFormApp\Reports\Braising Pan Operating Cost Tool.xls");
