When I try to open an URL in OO Calc I get the following error message:

---------------------------------------------------
This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel.
---------------------------------------------------

What file type should I associate to what program?

I have Windows XP
OO 3.3.0
Firefox as default browser.

Can someone help? For the last month or so I go from one computer disaster or trouble to the next and I would appreciate any help very much.

What type of file are you trying to open with the link? Can you post the link here?

How are you inserting the link? Do you use Insert--->Link to external data or Insert--->hyperlink?

I copy and paste the link.

I didn't have time to try the Insert link function since my reinstallation of Windows and OO yet.So I don't know if this works yet

I can't duplicate your problem. Cutting and pasting does not result in a click able hyperlink.

I finally managed to fix the issue. It had nothing to do with OpenOffice but with dll libraries probably and with the HyperText Transfer Protocol.

I followed the instructions in this URL as good I could and I did it manually. Then I set Firefox again as my default browser.
support.microsoft.com/kb/929867

It is for IE 7 but it works for IE8 also.

Previously I had registered some dll libraries and tried some other things I found online, but I myself don't even know exactly what I did.

Well now when I click an hyperlink in OpenOffice it opens in my browser. I had the same problem with pdfs and other applications too but it is now solved, let's hope forever!.
