Thanks Andy,

Further playing around seems to be pointing to either Windows XP or
something else odd on my PC - maybe a CA Express fix or something.  If I
run the same program on a Windows 2000 PC, the suggested syntaxes work
fine.  On Windows 98 I get the URL.DLL fileprotocol error that Rob
mentioned, and XP just changes the mouse pointer.

If I have an invalid path on my PC, excel appears saying it can't find
the file.  Valid path and it just changes the cursor.  I've raised it
with IBM support.

Cheers
Robin
