    Hei Martindwilson
    I have tried it as you suggest, and it works fine when I clik the picture directly but not when I use the hyperlink. When I use hyperlink in excel the picture open in internet explorer.
    I am an experienced user of PC, windows and excel, so this is not a normal error.

    Thanks for the help. attached link gave a good explanation and solved the problem.
    See below.

    http://mobile.vnunet.com/personal-co...ive-hyperlinks

    First, create a System Restore point, then Start, Run regedit. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common\Internet and create a new DWORD value named ForceShellExecute. Double-click on this and give it a value of one, then close the Registry editor.

    You will probably have other version numbers of Office as Registry keys. I was using Office 2003 and had keys for 8.0, 9.0 and 11.0. Adding the key to 11.0 didn’t work, but adding it to 9.0 caused the hyperlink associations to correspond with the Explorer associations. This should also work for Office 2000 and Office XP.

    Can you give a more detailed explanation? The link you provided no longer works and I'm very hesitant to do anything with my registry, despite my loathing of hyperlinked images opening with IE by default.
    MS Office 2003, Vista Ultimate
    Many thanks!
