Dreamweaver links to a file

By Adisha ·
In Dreamweaver, is it possible to make a hyperlink point to a document and open that document in the original application - WITHOUT having the browser shell.

The reason I am trying to do this is so that the destination document can open up and run vba in the background. The browser window seems to interfere with this process.

I have tried using _top, _parent, _self, _blank but this doesn't seem to work.

Many thanks for your help in advance

Good question, i think I tackled that one a year or so ago but I just can't find my old pages to see how it was scripted.

I would recommend the DW forum on Macromedia's site, it is an EXCELLENT resource and the people are usually pretty good at answering such isues, if not Macromedia's team will.

I would assume it is an Action Scripting or Generator issue.

I managed to find a workaround in the end - by using the BrowserFlags entry in the registry. It had to be set to a value of 9 on the excel.sheet.5 subkey; and 8 on other Excel.sheet keys.
