I am using Office 2003 SP3. On this PC only (Dell M6300 laptop), can't seem to get excel to launch a specific slide, always just launches the first slide. tried copy and paste hyperlink and seems like it adds the correct additions to the filename (path/filename.ppt,256,2 nickname). I also tried the "=hyperlink(path/filename....)" and didn't work either. tried changing the hyperlink to path/filename.ppt#2 with no luck. Is there something about my PC settings or the app settings I need to change?
