Does anyone know how to put a custom button to perform an action in an Excel worksheet on a custom tab on the Ribbon?

When the button is clicked, it opens up a website, www.awebsite.com

Does this require using Visual Studio or XML or can I do all this in VBA?

I certainly appreciate ANYONE'S help. I really need to do this.

I have just downloaded Visual Studio in case I need it.

Thanks anyone and everyone for any help and guidance on this.

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Not sure, but could you create a Macro to do this, then assign that macro to a custom button...?
