    Default Hyperlink displays message

    Happy holidays all.<BR><BR>Anyone know of a way to display a message when a hyperlink is clicked?<BR><BR>I have a hyperlinked that opens a Word doc and it can take a bit. What I would like to do is display a message that says something like "Opening Word please wait a moment". Never have wanted to do that before and don&#039t know how so any help would be appreciated.

    To have an alert box come up on a hyperlink (and still have the hyperlink be acted upon too), perhaps try HTML/JavaScript code such as the following:<BR><BR>&#060;a href="bio.asp" onclick="alert(&#039Opening Word please wait a moment&#039)"&#062;bio&#060;/a&#062;<BR><BR>Best regards,<BR>-Paul<BR><BR>J.
