DNS entry to point to Excel file

Can any one tell me if it is possible to create a DNS entry that will lead people straight to an Excel spreadsheet and if so, how?

Hi Johnny,

I'm not sure what you mean?? I'd like to create a DNS entry on our server so that if someone navigates to click here then they'll be directed directly to a spreadsheet that they can fill in.

Assuming they can navigate to the server, why not just put the spreadsheet on a shared drive the server ?

Then give everyone a desktop shortcut to it like...


Where S: is your shared drive
SHARE_NAME is the shared folder where the .xls file is
