Hyperlink To File Based On Cell Value?

Sep 29, 2012

Basically I have a folder with file names in the format:
"XXXXX characterstring"
where X is a digit

E.g.:
45627 -jdsuuuds.pdf
93823 Coates.pdf
98221 dagggiisa d sass.pdf

And I have an excel sheet with a list of the numbers at the start of these file names, eg:
45627
93823
98221

So what I want to do is have each cell link to the file with the corresponding number. So I click "45627" and it links to "C:path45627 -jdsuuuds.pdf"

I could do it if the file names matched exactly to the cell value, but when they don't.

It's super easy when the file name matches exactly:

VB: ActiveCell.Hyperlinks.Add ActiveCell, "C:path" & ActiveCell & ".pdf"

VB:
Sub makelinks() ChDrive "c"
ChDir "c:pathl"

For Each ce In Selection
filee = Dir(ce.Value & "*.pdf")

[Code]....

Create Hyperlink To Cell Based On Variable

Dec 8, 2012

VB:

ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="", SubAddress:="Work_Log!" & Sheets("Work_Log").Cells(b, 1), TextToDisplay:="View"

I want this to link to Work_Log!.Cells(b,1), however instead of grabbing the specific cell, it is pulling the contents of the cell and creating a URL of that. For instance if b = 1 and cell A1 contains the value "yellow" then this code is giving me the hyperlink to WorkLog!Yellow when I want it to read WorkLog!A1

Dynamic Hyperlink In Autoshape Based On Cell Value?

Jun 7, 2014

I have created an employee schedule with 26 pay periods. Each pay period has its' own worksheet for scheduling employees.

To navigate to the worksheets I created a home page on one of the worksheets and would like to create an AutoShape for navigating with a hyperlink based on the pay period which is selected in cell B3. When the autoshape is clicked the user would go to the correct pay period worksheet.

For example Home Page:

Cell B3 contains drop down list of the 26 pay periods which the user selects the proper pay period (ie. 8Jun14-21Jun14)
Cell E3 is a cell reference on the sheet A1
Cell B6 contains hyperlink formula =HYPERLINK("#"&"'" & B3 & "'!" & E3)
Autoshape has formula =B6

When I click on the autoshape the hyperlink does not work.

Text To Show In Cell Based Upon Hyperlink VBA Code

Aug 3, 2012

I have a spreadsheet where when cell is clicked, it opens the hyperlink dialogue and allows a user to insert a hyperlink into the cell next to it.

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Column = 27 And Target.Row > 7 And Target.Row < 401 Then
If Application.Dialogs(xlDialogInsertHyperlink).Show Then
Target.Cut Target.Offset(, 1)
End If
End If
End Sub

So if the cell AA8 is click it allows the user to insert a hyperlink and the hyperlink is pasted in to the cell AB8.

What I need: Is for the cell AA8 to say "Click to Add Hyperlink" and then once a hyperlink is added AB8 to say in the cell "Hyperlink to Folder".

External File(s) Referenced And File Links Change Based On Row Cell

Oct 22, 2009

I have attached the file I am working on. I am attempting to create a link to an external file based on the value of cells in column A. Then I would like to simply copy the formula down, lets say in Column B, the rows and as I do the external file reference will change depending on the value within the cell in Column A. I hope that I am making sense.

I am using Windows Vista with Excel 2007. The files will all be within the same file folder, however, there are hundereds of files so I won't be able to open them all for the indirect to work.

Save Each Worksheet As PDF File And Name Each File Based On Cell Value In Each Sheet

Jul 10, 2014

I have a Workbook that already has a macro in it that will generate multiple sheets based on certain criteria.

For each of these newly generated sheets (numbered 1-6 in the attached example), I need to be able save each of them to a PDF file based on a unique name contained in a certain cell (in this case, each named is referenced in cell Q1 of each sheet). As such, I should end up with 6 pdfs based on the attached sample files.

The PDFs would ideally need to be landscaped and should be just 1 page per sheet.

In my attached sample workbook, you'll notice that I have a "PracticePrint" macro that doesn't quite get the job done. One other criteria involves not printing any sheet with the characters "1010" in it (my PracticePrint macro is setup to do that, but it fails to do much else).

Use String As File-hyperlink?

Jan 27, 2014

I want to add hyperlinks to certain cells using drag and drop. I've got a userform with a toolbar that I use as a drop zone for files (called tbDrop). In the userform, below the dropzone is a label called "label2"

The dragging and dropping works as a charm, label2 shows me the file location and adds it as a hyperlink to the cell.

However, when I click the hyperlink the file can't be opened.

I've used the result string, added it manually as a hyperlink and recorded it. That worked, but i saw no difference in the recorded macro.

VB:
Private Sub tbDrop_OLEDragDrop(Data As MSComctlLib.DataObject, Effect As Long, Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)
Label2.Caption = ""
Dim a As String

Hyperlink Using Current File Name

Jun 23, 2008

I have an Excel 2003 application that creates a new workbook and adds hyperlinks that link up to other tabs withing the same new workbook.

Issue is that if say the default workbook name was "Book1" but the user saves this workbook with any other name, the hyperlinks die.

Is there anyway to use the current name of the file (instead of "Book1" in this example) in the formula "=HYPERLINK("[book1.xls]Sheet3!A1", "test")"

Show Userform Only If Hyperlink Does Not Locate File?

Dec 26, 2013

On sheet4 is a list of dates and I named that range as UPDATES2013. Each cell in that range is a hyperlink. Sheet1 cell I3 is a data validation list with the named range UPDATES2013 as the list. When a selection from Cell I3 is made I can get it to follow they hyperlink with the code I have. The problem I am having is if there is no file found, then I would like my Userform1 to show. I have tried several different things with the code, but every time I think Im going to get it to work....it doesn't. It either wont show the Userform at all, or it shows it even if the file is found. I am currently putting the code to run the macro on the worksheet module using the worksheet_change event.

One last thing...I also have hyperlinks throughout Sheet1 that will lead to the same files as in the named range UPDATES2013 from sheet4. I need the same thing to happen if they click one of these hyperlinks instead of using the data validation list in Cell I3. Is there a way to make one code that will show Useform1 if a hyperlink is selected and the file cannot be located (whether it be by the individual cells on sheet1...or the data validation list in Cell I3)?Here is the code I am using right now.

VB:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Hyperlink Does Not Maintain Path To Target File

Sep 19, 2007

I read about Hyperlinks in the August 2006 "OZGRID" Newsletters but found no answer.

Assume 2 workbooks - book1 and book2, both located in "c:" (root of drive C)

Now, In book1 I have declared an HL to book2 using CTRL+K and upon clicking in that cell the book2 is opened.

After MOVING(!) book1 to a new location (D:DATA) and clicking the HL - I get an Error "cannot open the specified file".

While book1 was still in root C: - I tried to force to c:ook2.xls by typing it in the HL address window but after saving, Excel deletes the "c:" and leaves "book2.xls" only I think because both files were located I the same directory.

I am aware that my "problem" can be solved by using the function HYPERLINK but I would like to learn (if possible) how to insert an HL using CTRL+K that will maintain the path although moving the file which contains the HL).

Excel 2003 :: HYPERLINK To Open PDF File Reader

Feb 27, 2013

How do I create a hyperlink in an Excel 2003 file that will open a PDF file with Reader?

I have an Excel file of hundreds of Customer names and invoice numbers. I have a directory of PDF files. The name of each PDF file is the customer name, a space, and the invoice number. I should be able to have a column in the Excel file that contains a formula that creates a hyperlink to open the corresponding PDF file.

I used the HYPERLINK function and built the path and file by concatenating information. When I click the hyperlink, I keep getting an Excel error: Cannot open the specified file.

Do you think this problem is something of my own doing or some "undocumented feature" in Excel?
