Perhaps your link is not quite right in Excel.  Does it start with http://  ?  It would help if you could post your sheet so we can see what's going on.

Thanks

Here is the file.

It has two links created in it, both have the same error returned as previously discussed.

This works fine for me in Excel 2007 with Chrome, although it complains about the certificate for the second link.  I don't really have any other suggestions, unless it's something related to your Trust Center settings

After allowing an excel rule on my outbound side firewall I was able to open the link normally.
