geta 404 error on the website, however, if I copy and paste the link into IE

I am using Excel 2003.

Both the URL's you posted work OK for me when used as hyperlinks by copying into
the address dialog box in InsertHyperlinkExisting file or Web Page option.

Not much help, just verification that if done correctly your hyperlinks should
work.

All of the other links in the spreadsheet work, but these two do not - I will
check to see if the problem is just on this network - I did create a new
spreadsheet and entered the hyperlink as you did and got the same issue - I
will update when I know how it works outside of this network
