We're playing around with the Client Access URL hotspots, and I'd like
to be able to add a URL that points to a file on the IFS.

In the browser I can key file://\\qgbcgsh01\qdls\credit\elapse.csv and
it cheerfully launches Excel with the file loaded.  I'd like to be able
to do this from an AS/400 screen.

I can put a http:// url on an AS/400 screen, and that works fine.
Clicking once on that launches the browser with the page loaded.  Single
clicking on the file:// url causes CA to think for a moment, changing
the mouse pointer to an hourglass then back to normal.  It hasn't
launched the browser.

Has anyone got this to work?  I'm on CA 5.1.
