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

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.

Test in attached file
