Excel Hyperlink not working to open word document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys, 

    Hope you can help me. 

    Ive been looking online and can't find the solution. In excel, i have got the below code. When the word 'Link' is pressed, I want to open the word document called 'Intro' which is located on the desktop in the folder called 'New'. But for some reason the below code does not work.

    =HYPERLINK(":\\Desktop\New\Intro.docx", "Link")

    Please can someone help me? Are my settings not correct?

    Thanks for all your help.
