I have a web page with a list of phone numbers. Users want windows
to dial the number when they click on it. Is it possible? Has anyone
done similar things before? Thank you.

I doubt it is, unless you use some sort of client side software and just access it through the link.

yeah, the only way to do that is through either something the user downloads beforehand or trhough an activeX control.

Hello,

You could copy & paste the phone number list to excel (or just open the web page using excel). Then use a macro to dial the phone. Here's the macro code.... Pretty easy from excel. If the name is 2 columns to the left of the phone#, it displays on the dialer. This macro code also turns the phone number red after the call is made, to help you keep track of who you dialed! Cool eh?

'********Macro********
'
' declare assisted-tapi function
'
Declare Function tapiRequestMakeCall Lib "TAPI32.DLL" (ByVal lpszDestAddress As String, ByVal lpszAppName As String, ByVal lpszCalledParty As String, ByVal lpszComment As String) As Long
'
' call number in active cell
'
Sub CallBtn()
Dim x As Long ' for return
Dim cPhone As String
Dim cName As String ' KK added
'
cPhone = ActiveCell.Offset(0)
cName = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -2) ' KK added: offset(row, column)
Selection.Font.Color = RGB(255, 0, 0) ' KK added: change color
'
x = tapiRequestMakeCall(cPhone, "", cName, "")
'
End Sub
'********End of Macro********

Hope that helps,
Kevin
p.s. using excel 2000 and Windows XP.
