I created an Excel file that I've nested on a server, but I want to make it a clickable link using an Http: address with HTML <a target="blank" href="...">Click here to download the excel</a> syntax. Is this possible, if so does anyone know how this can be done?

Create a virtual directory
http://www.iis.net/configreference/system.applicationhost/sites/site/application/virtualdirectory

Actions pane > View Virtual Directories > Add Virtual Directory

Then that becomes the path in the link url.
