    Default How to start Google Earth at a specific placemark

    Hi, I have an excel spreadsheet where I want the addresses to link to a kml file that opens at that specific address, how do I do this?

    Here's one I made - https://www.dropbox.com/s/hikqf2j2vn...EH%20Test.xlsx

    I created the kmz files manually, saved them, then used my right-click button to create a hyperlink to that file.

    Is this what you are looking for? I can go into further detail if this us what you are trying to do.

    That's what I am doing, was just wondering if there was a better alternative. We are talking thousands of files
