Excel Hyperlinks

Hi Guys
I am using Excel 2003
I have this order-form on an Excel spreadsheet (see image attachment)
I would like to enable a user to view the image of a selected item.
Images are available my website www.mywebsite.com
The user is supposed to select the 'item_no' cell and click a button labeled 'View-Image' (see attached cell B9 is selected)

Image url is "http://www.mywebsite.com/images/" + ltrim(Str(ActiveCell.value))+".jpg"
I would like the code for the click event for the View-Image button to produce a webpage with the selected item image.
Is this senario workable?
If yes what should be the code of the 'on_click' event for the View-Image Button?
I was experimenting but could not get it to work.
Your help is appreciated.
Thanks
Dory

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try something like this
Sub View_Image_Click()

    ActiveCell.Select
    With Worksheets(1)

    .Hyperlinks.Add .Range("Q16"), "http://www.mywebsite.com/images/" + LTrim(Str(ActiveCell.Value)) + ".jpg"
    End With
    Range("Q16").Select
    Selection.Hyperlinks(1).Follow NewWindow:=False, AddHistory:=True
End Sub

Open in new window

Q16 can be changed to any cell you want in the spreadsheet hidden from the user.
