Always mention your Configuration with all Versions when asking a Question on the Forum, Grrr!! You are not new to this Forum...

URL GOTO allows you to open local Files...

- (F)CI(M) = (Full) Config Info (Missing): iMacros + Browser + OS (+ all 3 Versions + 'Free'/'PE').
- I don't even read the Qt if that (required) Info is not mentioned...!
- Script & URL help a lot for more "educated" Help...

OK, but you still don't mention your Version...
Make sure you are at v8.60 or v8.8.1 because URL GOTO + Local Files was broken for v8.5.x...

if using .js you can launch your excel file to really open by doing this:

Code: Select all

var file = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/file/local;1"]  
                     .createInstance(Components.interfaces.nsILocalFile);  
file.initWithPath("C:\\Documents and Settings\\file.xlsx");  
file.launch();
