Hi all

This is my first post. I'm also a NASA WorldWind user, but Google Earth has better graphics!. Anyway...

In Worldwind I can create a hyperlink that will open the application and take the user directly to the given co-ordinate and elevation. The typical syntax is as follows: "worldwind://goto/world=Earth&lat=-30.5810666666667&lon=23.4964&alt=10000"

How can I do the same in Google Earth? Note: In Excel I can replace the values of the co-ordinates with variables and then concatenate to make the hyperlink as follows: "=CONCATENATE("worldwind://goto/world=Earth&lat=",O3,"&lon=",N3,"&alt=10000")" with O3 and N3 being cell values.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
