Trouble With Hyperlinks

I'm using WindowsXP and Excel 2003. I have a cell that has a hyperlink in it. When I right-click on the cell and choose "Edit Hyperlink...", I see the desired URL in both the "Text to display" field and in the "Address" field. However, when I click on the cell to go to the URL, my browser (IE) opens up to a different URL.

Any ideas why this would happen? I've tried clearing the cell and re-entering the information. Same problem.

Thanks...

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

What happens if you enter the same text in your webbrowser? Does it get redirected to another site?

Hi,

The only reason I can see for this is not Excel-related...
What happens when you paste the URL in your IE? Doesn't it go to another URL ?

Perhaps provide the URL so we can test it.

kind regards,
Erik

I agree with Erik in that it doesn't sound like an Excel error. It would seem that it could be a DNS Server problem, but other than suggesting what the source might be, I can't offer anything else as it's totally beyond my experience/skills.

Do you have a network IT guy whereever you are that you can ask?
