Hi everybody,

I need a help in hyperlink formula

Some peoples are working in text file.. and i need to spell check the
files in msword.

I have created a hyperlink like...
=HYPERLINK("\\server\ksi\07-08-10\3174\31740708.txt","For Qc")

When i click the text file in explorer, its opening in msword because
i set the txt files to open always in msword.

Now when i click the hyperlink cell.. its opening in text file because the extension is in .txt, but it should be open in msword for me to check spelling.

And i cannot ask to peoples to work in msword due to some processing reasons.

Is there any ideas to open the txt hyperlink in msword or is there
any hyperlink formula to bring openwith window.

Thanks in advance.
