Windows 7: Can I view linked excel 2007 files in IE9?

Can I view linked excel 2007 files in IE9?

In XP, and previous IE's we'd click on a link to an excel file and it would pop up within IE, so we could quickly view it. I would like this in IE9, does anyone know how to make this happen? I have not had luck searching for a solution to this in Windows 7/IE9 Thanks!

We use Office 2007. We have an intranet site which within this we have links to spreadsheets. With IE8 and XP, we would just click on it and it'd open in IE, which is what they want. With windows 7 and IE9, it no longer does this. It brings up a box and asks to save or open.
