Guys I would appreciate any views on this ...
I have a URL which points to a page on my own website.
Let’s suppose it is called http://www.mysite.com/page.html
If I open Internet Explorer (IE) manually and type the URL directly into the address bar and hit ‘Go’, the correct page loads into IE as expected.
However, if I type the URL into a Word (or Excel, etc) document, so that it naturally turns into a hyperlink (turns blue as above) and then I click on the link, I would expect the following three things to happen:
1. IE to open
2. The URL to appear in the address bar
3. The page to appear
The trouble is that only the first 2 of these happen. I get the message “The page cannot be displayed within the body of IE. HOWEVER, if I refuse to give up hope and then click on ‘Go’ next to the address bar, the page loads up! It’s as if the click on the hyperlink is doing only 90% of what it should be (i.e. leaving out the ‘Go’ part).
Why won’t the click on the URL load up the page in one go? Other URLs work fine and the ones that now give me this problem used to work OK. Any ideas?
