I know very little about VB. I Need to code for navigating a URL on clicking link button such that navigated URL will contain an Excel file and that file should open on clicking the link button.

Not clear. Elaborate more. Avoid txt speak in questions.

Assuming this is a windows application (and URL is a little misleading in that respect), look at the System.Diagnostics.Process class[^]

Private Sub OpenExcelFileForEditing(ByVal OutputPath As String)
    Dim excel As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
    Dim wb As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook

        excel = New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
        wb = excel.Workbooks.Open(OutputPath)
        excel.Visible = True
        txtPath.Text = OutputPath
    Catch ex As COMException
        MessageBox.Show("Error accessing Excel: " + ex.ToString())
    Catch ex As Exception
        MessageBox.Show("Error: " + ex.ToString())
    End Try
End Sub
