Excel Hyperlink in browser problem

P: 2
I'm very new at this and don't know what to do. I open an excel spreadsheet in a browser window using html and the spreadsheet opens fine. I have hyperlinks on the excel spreadsheet that someone else attached. I have no control of the hyperlinks. What I would like to do is open the hyperlink in a new browser window. I'm using IE6 and when I click the excel hyperlink the link will appear in the same window. Does anyone know how to code this so I can make the hyperlink open a new browser window?

If you want to open a link in a new window the syntax is like this...

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a href="newpage.html" target="_blank">link text</a>
the target="_blank" makes the page open in a new window

Thanks, but I tried that and it didn't work.

The hyperlink that I'm trying to open is an excel link that someone else creates. The hyperlinks in the Excel file open in the same window and I'm trying to open those links in a new browser window. As of now I have file names on the web page and the user will click the file name to open the excel file, after the Excel file comes up in a browser window they click on the assigned hyperlinks in Excel and that file opens in the same window. I'm lost. Is there a way to get the name of the Excel Hyperlink and assign it to a new window? Or, if anyone has any code examples how to get this done could you let me know? Thanks...
