Macro To Create Hyperlink List Not Working?

Jul 10, 2014

I have a macro that would create a hyperlink for every one of the files in a folder that a specific cell gave the url address for.

Recently I got moved to a new pc and forgot to migrate my macro's over. In combing back through previous threads... I found the macro, but now it won't work.

[Code] ......

The error that I get is:

Compile error:
Invalid use of property

I get this error at row

Range (Cells(Rows.count, "U").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Address)

Why did the macro used to work and not anymore?

Create Macro To Hyperlink Cells To Certain Worksheets?

Apr 4, 2014

I want the macro to:

1. Create a new worksheet when data is entered into a cell (ie. entered text "ACC2013" into cell A5)

2. Rename that worksheet to correspond to the data in the cell (ie. change worksheet name from sheet2 to "ACC2013")

3. Create a hyperlink between cell A5 and sheet2

I'd like for this macro to loop through a range of cells so I don't have to have a long code. Let's say my data range is from A5:A23. If this requires multiple macros that is fine.

Create Hyperlink To Folder

Sep 4, 2009

I'm trying to create a link to a folder and to insert it in a cell. The folder name is: "C:DISCO CTEMPLATES #1". I tried to copy that text and paste it into the cell. Excel recognizes that as a hyperlink but when I click the cell a message appears: "Cannot open the selected file" Could the problem be because of the "#" symbol?

Excel 2007 :: How To Create Hyperlink Using VBA

Oct 26, 2012

I am using MS Excel 2007.

I have column "A" a list of my PDF filenames and File path in Column "B". I want to establish hyperlinks for each of these PDF filenames (column A) and link it with the file path that I generated in Column B.

=HYPERLINK(B1,A1) did it very well, but unfortunately when converting to PDF, the hyperlink is not working, and I believe the conversion retained is only in text, so now my only resort is hardcoding it by VBA.

Using IF To Search For Text And Create Hyperlink?

Apr 28, 2014

I basically need a formula in one tab of a spreadsheet that if another cell contains text it will search for that text in another tab and display a useable hyperlink to it.

So I want a formula in A1 in Sheet1 that will search for the text contained in A2 in Sheet2 and display a useable hyperlink to the cell in which that text is contained, in Sheet2.

This may not even be possible, but if it is then that would save me SO much time.

Create Hyperlink In Userform Textbox

Feb 17, 2007

sometimes i'll have some text i want to show in a userform textbox. let's say the text happens to be in a sheet named story, and it is in A1 of the worksheet.

A1 says, for example:


" The next big thing can be found by clicking here "
if the note above were on a web page, all you'd have to do is click on 'here' and you are off the the next big thing. but so far, when i use this code to bring the text in story!A1 into the userform textbox all i get is the text. there is no 'clickability' as it were.

Me.textbox.Value = Range("story!A1").Value
is there some bit of code magic one can use to make a userform textbox function with html code?

VBA To Create A Hyperlink Drilldown For Each Cell

Aug 17, 2006

I need help in making a VBA to create a looping hyperlink drilldown for each cell in the inventory_general wksht.

The purpose of this sheet is to allow a user to click on a hyperlink which will then reference a macro to
autofilter the data in the bin_lot worksheet to display all rows for that particular item number.

Apparently, you can't select all the cells and insert a hyperlink because all the hyperlinks will reference the first cell value for autofiltering.

This is what I tried but it's not working obviously.

Sub HyperlinkDrilldown()

'
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="", SubAddress:= _
"Bin_Lot!A1", TextToDisplay:=target.value
Range("A2:A21").Select

Create Hyperlink To Result Of Lookup

I have three columns. Column A=" Name", Column B=" Date" and Columnc="Amount". I need to find and go to the correct amount based on a certain name and date as criteria.

I was going to see if it was possible to use this =INDEX(C1:C1000,MATCH(1,(A1:A1000=D1)*(B1:B1000=E1),0)) with a hyperlink, but I can't even get it to work without a hyperlink. I also tried this to find the match= SUMPRODUCT((A1:A1000=E5)*(B1:B1000=EE6)*(C1:C1000)). I found it on a website(I'm not sure how it works.) My next shot was going to be with multiple criteria vlookup, but I can't get anything more than a plain vlookup to work. I'm using excel 2007 non-commercial use.

Create Hyperlink From 2 Cells, Then Open Word

Jun 6, 2006

The purpose of this endeavour is to create a cell that when the user clicks
on it, it will open up a Word file that THAT particular cell represents.

FIRST STEP:
Take the values from Column D (Tract Number), then add a ".doc" extension to
it, then put the UNC filepath (\serverdata
eports) in front of all of that
and put it in Column E. See me example below:

File path plus Tract Number plus Extension

\serverdata
eports 7-5-065-085 .doc

.... to generate something like this:
\serverdata
eports7-5-065-085.doc

SECOND STEP:
Use the value (only when the user clicks on the hyperlink) from the cell in
Column E and start up Word.

Create Macro That Can Create Dynamic Copy / Paste Loop?

Feb 12, 2014

I need to create a macro that can create a dynamic copy/paste loop. So far what I have is horribly inefficient. Each row in colmn A(minus the header) has a unique number in it. For each unique number, I need to paste it based on the number of column headers in row 1(minus column A). So, if there are 20 column headers, I need to copy cell A2 and paste it 19 times in another sheet. Then, I need to move to the next number in column A and do the same thing. Here's what I have:

[Code] .........

You can see that this is not dynamic. If I add another row to my table and rerun the macro, it will not catch it. I've attached a sample file to show you the big picture of what I'm trying to do. The data that I have is in Sheet1, and I'm trying to get it into the format in Sheet3. Rows/columns will be periodically added to the table in Sheet1, so the macro needs to be dynamic to catch that. The data in Sheet3 will always remain, and the macro will add the updated data below the old data in Sheet3.

Macro To Hyperlink

Jul 29, 2008

I have a hyperlink generated from a vlookup that is generated from the result of a combo box click, so the reference in the hyperlink cell will change to whatever sheet the vlookup dictates.

Then I have a macro assigned to a button ( Called 'Go' ) that when pressed clicks on the hyperlink and takes me to that corresponding sheet.

When I recorded the macro, it clicked on the hyperlink cell when it was hyperlinking to let's say Sheet 'April', but if I click on let's say September, in the combo box, then of course the hyperlink now links to the September sheet, but if I click the 'Go' button with the macro attached, it still takes me to 'April'.

surely, the macro simply follows the steps I recorded and therefore should now be clicking on the hyperlink that now says 'September'. Surely, the macro shouldn't REMEMBER that it originally clicked on 'April'.

Macro & Hyperlink

Mar 17, 2007

I have a workbook with over 40, identically formated, sheets. Each sheet has 96 pages. One page for each roll of carpet. To hunt for the next blank page to use, is time consuming.

So:

On each sheet, Range B207:B303, I have IF formulas that will display the carpet ID number for each page, if one is present, or the cell remains blank. In Range C207:C303, I have Hyperlinks to the pages on the sheet.

I need a macro that will search the Range in column B for the first blank cell, then automatically use the Hyperlink next it in column C. Then I can assign the macro to a button, copy and past the button on all 40 sheets. With one click of the button, I will instantly be taken to the page availabel for data entry on that sheet.

I have a macro that basically captures all of the errors in my spreadsheet and summarizes them under 3 columns (Value in Cell, Sheet, Cell) so that I can quickly identify the error message as well as it's location. I wanted to take it a set further and add a hyperlink for each error so that the user can quickly go to the error location to investigate. I really don't care where the hyperlink is located as far as which 3 columns.

Range("G2").Select
Selection.End(xlToRight).Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select

Hyperlink Does Not Cause 'worksheet_activate' Macro To Run

If updateall = vbYes Then
ActiveSheet.Unprotect
' clear previous payments
Range("U3").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False
Range("D7").Select
ActiveSheet.Protect
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Now, this works just fine if the user clicks the sheet itself. However, generally they are accessing sheets via hyperlinks, which do not seem to activate this code. Is there a better/different way to ensure when the user gets to a sheet via hyperlink, they still see the msgbox?[/b]
