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.
