Open macro-enabled template as new Document in Browser

Hi everybody

I'm trying to link a macro-template on a share (ex. X:\Dot1.dotm).

If I click the link in the browser(file://X:\Dot1.dotm) it opens not a
new document, but the template itself.

Is it possible to open it as a new document, like you double-click it
on the filesystem and a new document gets open?

Thanks very much for help.
Samuel.

What you are seeing is the way hyperlinks work. I don't think there is a way
around it.

No hyperlinks work if you link to a file with the http:// protocol.
The file protocol opens the template itselfs.
Maybe the data protocol will help?

I am very thankful for a solution.

Thanks,
Sam

As far as I know, Open is the only thing you can do with documents that you
access via a link in an HTML document. The other file actions, such as New
in this case, depends on file associations on your computer. However, it
might be worth asking in a programming newsgroup such as
microsoft.public.word.vba.general where people are likely to be more
knowledgeable on this topic.
