URL buttons not working in Powerpoint

Hi

I have just created an Xcelsuis report and exported this to Powerpoint.

Now it opens up fine in Powerpoint, but my URL buttons do not work (they do not open the excel files i want, i.e. My button is URL: C:\Test\Test.xls)

When exporting to a pdf format this URL button works fine.

Please can you advise how I can get this working for my Powerpoint.

Thanks!

    When you export the SWF to your desktop or into a PPT it will not have permission to access external data by default (or call a URL).

    You need to add C:\Program Files\...\PowerPoint.exe as to the list of trusted items using the Adobe Global Security Settings Manager, see the Xcelsius Release notes for more information about the Flash Player Security...

    Regards
