Opening an excel document with initialation parameters

Our server configurations live in version controlled excel spreadsheets.

From our wiki, I would like to be able to deep link into these spreadsheets so that information can be quickly accessed.

Is there a way of opening a spreadsheet and passing additional parameters to excel, e.g. so a specified row will be initially highlighted, or the page will scroll to the requested point - so that I can deep link from my wiki?

How do you want to pass those 'parameters' to excel?  If it is something that will very rarely change, you can add VBA code that will perform a certain action upon the excel file opening.  This will also require that the file format be changed (in Office 2007 or higher).

I would like to pass the parameters over via a specially crafted link from my wiki, so something triggered from a web browser.

I'd want to do stuff like:

"Networkmaster.xlsx+servername arg" type syntax
