Hi,
I am not a "techi" just an end user.  I have an excel spreadsheet where I want to hyperlink into a lotus notes database. From Excel, I have approximately 80 different cells and I want to be able to hyperlink from a specific cell into a specific file in Lotus Notes.  Our company accesses files from terminal servers.  
1.  Is this possible?
2.  and how do I set it up?
Any Directions would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Denise

Hm, yes, no, difficult... Depends on how you want to "link".

There are two ways to hyperlink into Notes:
- using a Notes URI
- using an HTTP URL

An example of the first: notes://server.domain.xyz/path/database.nsf/view/key
Problem: you can reference a Notes document, but you can't go any deeper

If the server has HTTP running, you can go down to the file level: http: //server.domain.xyz/path/database.nsf/view/key/$File/filename
Problem: mostly to be used for file downloads, so you cannot access the file for other operations (write, etc.)

But if you want to link one cell to one or more specific cells in the file inside Notes, I think that's not possible. Only if you use some special tool that allows you to view a Notes database from the Windows explorer. There used to be one, or was it only for Domino.Doc? I'm not quite sure, but that may be where QuickR and/or WebDAV come in...
