OH, also, if I launch the site from my local computer all the links work in IE. But when uploaded to the server, the office ones stop working properly.
Check out the paths of the files ???
Is it absolute path or relative path ???
And also check out the files locations and the given path ????
the paths are correct. they are absolute paths. the files are fine. it only affects microsoft office documents. acrobat docs open fine. when you get the action canceled error in IE, if you hit enter, refresh the error page, or click go on the address bar on the error page, it takes you to the file. there is some reason why IE is not carrying out the command to open the file.
I installed firefox and all the links worked. so its something in IE 6. Anyone have any ideas? I have looked on microsoft.com and googled it and can't find a thing that might help! the website is listed in my trusted sites.

ie has added security for activex controls... so you will need to look at
the security settings for your browser and relax them... either in popups
or/and in the advanced section of the tools menu...
I have adjusted security settings so many times with no luck. Also, don't see anything in advanced that would affect it. anyone have any other ideas? on one computer just putting the url in the trusted column worked, but not on other computers.
