Thanks for the feast Jack. There's a lot to digest, so I might just fork but a few morsels :

This is what Opera does, but IE loaded the file without requesting confirmation. I am not used to opening an attachment without confirmation, I must be getting rusty with IE having switched to Opera.

This works with both Opera and IE.

Programmer being the gog (guy or gal) that created the excel page - so I cannot affect how it behaves when I open it. Or can this be controlled from [Tools [Options]] ?
