Can you use a hyperlink in Block Attributes to open Excel to a specific Cell?

Basically, I have a 6 story building and I want to click on the room name in each room and pull up excel spreadsheets (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing or Architectural). I have found that if I create an attribute for each spreadsheet I can assign different hyplerlinks to each attribute navigating me to the different spreadsheets. My question is though, how do I get it to open to a specific cell. Each floor has hundreds if not a thousand room names and I don't really want the user to have to scroll through that whole list to get to the one room they are looking for. Any suggestions? Should I try Data links instead? I tried creating a .dvb, but I think I still have the same problem. I have attached those files, just in case that might be helpful. You have to open the .dwg, load the .lsp and and .dvb, then type dd and select the blank room name to see it in action. I do not need the table in AutoCAD, I just need a link to navigate to excel.

 

Thanks in advance
