Opening an External Web Page From a QV Sheet

Hi, I would like to add a web link to one of my QV sheets. But the boss would like to take it a step further, when the sheet is accessed, she would like the link to automatically deploy and the main page of the targeted web site postioned on the QV sheet. Can this be done, and how? Thanks!

Settings/Document Properties/Triggers

In the top sections select On Open and Add Actions. Under External is the option to Open URL

This will open a webpage in the browser, There might be other options to open it in the document.

Hi, I did not see an EXTERNAL option from Settings/Doc Props/Triggers ...

Thank you for your help

OK, Here is what I have. I can build a link easy enough which is displayed on a sheet. And if that link is clicked, then the targeted web page is opened either in the same window or a different window. The problem is, I would like the targeted web page to open on its own but only when in a certain tab (sheet) See below. Is possible?ThisIsWhat.bmp
