Hello,

I have a problem with hyperlinks in my excel table. I created hyperlinks to pdf files but when I try to open the hyperlink it just flashes the pdf, like it would open it and then dissapears. I have office 2003. When I transfer the folder with files and excel table to may laptop, which is windows XP it opens the links normally.
Please help!!!!! I need this to work urgently !!!!

I was getting the same problem in Excel 2007. I tired making the change that MS recommended. Have not heard back from my client to see if worked, but it sounds like a viable solution. Here is the link to what MS suggested.

try installing foxit reader and setting to your default PDF viewer. I had problem with adobe reader causing the issue.

I had also gone through the same problem which u had face and I found that there is no problem in excel but it's problem in Adobe reader. If u check version of Adobe reader in your computer it will be Adobe reader 7.0.This creates problem.You can not link PDF file which will open in Versin 7.0.so install Adobe reader 6.0.which will solve your problem.
What did you use to convert the file to pdf? If you used primoPDF that may be the cause. primo doesn't handle links pretty well(apparently, only links with exact address may be located). Same file links will definitely not work.

you most likely could have ended the AcroRd32.exe process and then retried opening it. Just food for thought. I've seen this type of behavior in PDF's numerous times and that is how I get around it each time.
