      Description

      One of our faculty posted an Excel spreadsheet in Resources on his course site.

      In the worksheet, he put a link to a Word document that was also located in Resources.

      When a user clicked on the Excel spreadsheet, opened Excel and then clicked on the link to the Word document, they were brought to their My Workspace instead of to the Word document that the link represented.

      However, if the user downloaded and saved the Excel spreadsheet to their local machine and then clicked on the Word document link, their browser then took them to the correct location in Resources and launched Word.

      Is there some sort of recursion error that is occurring here? Is this a Sakai behavior or a browser behavior?

      Just curious...
