I created a link list pointing at document masters on the network to make it easier to locate and print them out. Right now when the link is clicked on it launches within the same Excel instance the the link list was opened in. I would like a new instance of Excel to be launched when the link is clicked on within which to open the document master. How would I do that? Here is an example of the current link path that I use:

\\ufci47spa\common$\FULTON\Forms\Filling Room\Machine Weight Sheets\Q-11 Weight Sheet.xls

Hmmmm....I'm turning my Document launch list into a User Form. I then want the launch to happen in a new instance of Excel. I'm not sure what you're suggesting will help that?
