A discussion group participant recently asked us as to whether he could hyperlink from a DWF file to a Microsoft Excel file.
One of our *new* Product Designers, mark Anderson replied with the following: "Autodesk Design Review can retain published hyperlinks created in authoring applications such as AutoCAD. However, Autodesk Design Review cannot be used to create new hyperlinks in DWF files.
So, if you are an AutoCAD user or a user of another authoring application, you can create the hyperlink there, then publish to DWF. One way to do this is to create a field, then in the properties of that field, select Hyperlink and add your link.
The path of the hyperlink depends on where the Microsoft Excel file will be. For example, if you are linking to filename.xls on the desktop of your machine, the link might be C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\filename.xls.
If you do not have an authoring application, you may add a text markup with the hyperlink path, but other users will have to copy and paste the link into an Internet browser or Windows Explorer."
