Hyperlinks Not Working

Jan 21, 2010

The following is a simplified example of my problem: I have a list of product item numbers in column A. Next to each item number in column B, is a hyperlink to a PDF file relevant to each item. Elsewhere in the sheet, is a drop down box containing the item numbers. Next to the drop down box is a HYPERLINK(VLOOKUP) that fetches the relevant hyperlink depending upon the selected item in the drop down box. Problem is, when I select the ‘lookup’ link, I get an error message ‘cannot open the specified file’ (the original Hyperlink works fine). Does anyone have a solution to this problem (preferably without resorting to Visual Basic?

Hyperlinks To Other Worksheets Not Working

May 25, 2013

I have a worksheet with with links to other workbooks. This has been working fine but a few days ago stopped working. I am getting a pop-up box.

An example of this is : Opening C:Business300635 Invoice.xlsm.

Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer. It is important to be certain that this file is from a trustworthy source. Would you like to open this file? Yes or No.

When i click on Yes the busy icon appears for about 2 minutes and then disappears, not opening the file. I have tried to get this solved by going to Microsoft site for any possible clues. no luck there. I have uninstalled all updates to Microsoft and Excel to a point prior to the problem occurring, but to no avail. I can access the workbook I need to open by clicking the Office Button, and then searching for the relevant workbook.

The hyperlink formula I am using is " =HYPERLINK("C:Business"&P546&" Invoice.xlsm", "Invoice") ". The "&P546&" refers to the invoice number listed elsewhere in the worksheet.

Can't Understand Why This Isn't Working - Hyperlinks

Jun 6, 2007

Trying to create a hyperlink in a worksheet to a new file saved under the name from the calling cell.

The file saveas function works great, but I cannot get the hyperlink to function correctly, and I've tried several ways.

The only way I can get a hyperlink to work and continually function is by manually creating it in the spreadsheet.

sub newjobcard()
FNAME = ActiveCell.Value
ActiveCell.Formula = ("=HYPERLINK("y:FNAME" & ".XLS", FNAME)")
Workbooks.Add Template:= _
"Z:Peters computerPeters work FilesWTE FILESORIGINALS TEMPLATESJob Card.xls"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="y:" & FNAME & ".xls"
End Sub

Hyperlinks Stop Working When Page Is Sorted?

Oct 15, 2013

I have a Master sheet with data on it that corresponds with multiple sheets in the same workbook that I have links to in the Master sheet. It all works fine until I sort the Master and then my links start sending me to the wrong worksheet.

Is it just the nature of hyperlinks that you can't sort, or is something else going on here?

Excel 2010 :: Hyperlinks Not Working When Spreadsheet Moved

Oct 17, 2013

Using MS Excel 2010.

As I understand it hyperlinks set in a spreadsheet should work regardless of where you save and/or copy the spreadsheet i.e. as long as the directory location of the location / file the hyperlink is referencing doesn't change (notwithstanding, the user must have appropriate access rights to the relevant directory locations)

However, the situation I have is the spreadsheet was generated and saved to directory location A (intention being this would be the 'master' yearly template) and the hyperlinks set, all of which work when you open the spreadsheet in this directory location. But when I copy the spreadsheet to directory location B, which is intended to be the yearly 'register' location for the spreadsheet, none of the hyperlinks work? When I hold my cursor over a link in the copied spreadsheet, in directory B, I do not get a 'pop-up' path like I do in directory A and when I click a link I get an error message:

Microsoft Excel The address of this site is not valid. Check the address and try again.

As stated above the documents the hyperlinks relate to have not moved, they remain in the same template directory (i.e. the link path has not altered).

Explicit Hyperlinks, Relative Hyperlinks

Feb 21, 2007

I have a spreadsheet and within the first sheet there are lots of hyperlinks to other cells within sheet 1 (my template).

I have made a small macro which very basically makes a copy of sheet 1 (my template)

The hyperlinks in the template are explicit and as they are copied to sheet two, they still reference back to cells in sheet 1. I need the hyperlinks to be relative, so that when I make a copy of the template the hyperlinks are copied and make reference to cells in the new sheet. I cannot work out how this should be done

Macros That Were Working In Excel 2003 Are Not Working In 2007

Jan 25, 2010

I have a workbook in excel 2003 which I had been running the following macros (listed below). We recently upgraded to Excel 07, and neither are working. When I try to run them, the "debug" option highlights the following line in the sort macro "Range("A2:z" & lastcell).Sort key1:=.Columns(1)". This is driving me crazy, as the macros worked perfectly under the older version of Microsoft. Is there an issue with crossfunctionality between '03 and '07'.

Private Sub Worksheet_change(ByVal target As Excel.Range)
If target.Column = 1 Then
ThisRow = target.Row
startRow = 1
i = 1
Set ws = ActiveSheet
maxRow = Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
maxCol = Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Column
ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone

I have a spreadsheet that when an identity code is keyed in, it will display a make and model of a particular mobile phone, i want to put a hyperlink in the cell next to the phone name which will then open up an IE window to a website.

The thing i want ideally is if there is any way you can incorporate the websites search function into the hyperlink so when you click on it, the hyperlink will copy the phone details over to the website's search engine and take you straight to the online details of the phone?

wow this isnt making sense to me!

For e.g

The identity code shows up a Nokia 1500

The hyperlink next to it takes in the manufacturer/model details "nokia 5300" (these will obviously vary each time so takes in a cell reference should i say)

It opens up the ie window e.g "google" and automatically searches for that "nokia 5300" and comes up straight away with the search results.

Sorting Hyperlinks

Jun 20, 2008

I created a data base that had a hyperlink to a plan of the store so we can find parts easy. With a lot of help for people here on this web site, it works very well.

My only problem now is that I sorted my Database by the hyperlink column. It made it easy to do one hyperlink and pull the fill handle down for the rest of the same hyperlink reference.

When I went to resort the database so that the parts were in alphabetical order. The sort worked well except that the hyperlink for lets say cell F87 was not sorted. Example : - F87 hyper link presort had the reference to Rack 10 self B. Post sort it had the reference to Rack 16 shelf C. But when clicked on it still took you to Rack 10 self B.

Jun 9, 2009

When I click on a hyperlink inside an Excel spreadsheet, it is linked to a PDF file. When clicked, the screen flashes the Adobe Acrobat program for a split second and then disappears. But I can open the hyperlink same as which it is linked to a word file in the same directory.

My case is like the following Macro in excel.
Setup hyperlink and open it . Then the problem is shown as my previous thread mentioned.

I have a database of two columns - a file name and a hyperlink for the folder path to that form. What I would like to do is a VLOOKUP type search by the form name and the result be the hyperlink itself.

Editing Hyperlinks Using Vba?

Sep 8, 2009

I made the mistake of creating hyperlinks to files on a server (using the \SERVERNAME convention) without using the "hyperlink base" option.

I've been sufficiently chastened, but the present problem is that I have many such hyperlinks that are now worthless because, when saved, they point to "../../[foldername1]/[foldername2]/[filename]", etc.

Need macro that would replace the first five characters ("../..") of all the hyperlinks on my sheet with //[MYSERVERNAME] ?

If Function And Hyperlinks?

Feb 2, 2010

Have the following dilemma in Excel: If I enter a value in cell A3 and the value corresponds to a reference value in one of cells B4:B12, can I hyperlink data in cell range C4: C8 to elsewhere on the sheet (eg J4: J8).


I have 8 meeting rooms that each have a dedicated code, AU, BR, FOR, TO, M1, M2, M3, M4

When I enter a code in cell A3, (eg AU) I want the data in cells A4: A8 (date, start, end, event) to be reproduced in another table on the sheet.

In other words: If A3 is equivalent to a value in cells B4: B12, then can data in C4:C8 be reproduced in J4: J8?

Dropdown Box And Hyperlinks

Aug 28, 2012

I'm trying to build a workbook that has a drop down box with 5 options. I want to be able to select an option out of the drop down menu, and have about 5 cells populate on that same sheet based on the what I select in the drop down box. I used Data Validation and List to make my drop down box, so that part is no problem. I can use an if statement to populate cells with names based on what I choose in the drop down box, so that's not really my problem either. The problem I have is that I was to make each name that populates based on what I select in the drop down box to be a hyperlink to a separate sheet within the same workbook.

I need these hyperlinks to go to different sheets based on what I choose from the drop down box. To tell you exactly what I'm doing: I have 5 locations. Each location has 3 to 5 supervisors. Each supervisors has 6 to 8 laborers under them. I want to have a drop down box with my location names. When I choose a location, I want to see the names of the supervisors at that location populate. I then want to be able to click on the name of the supervisor and have a hyperlink to a different page within that workbook to tell me data on the laborers under the supervisor..

Hyperlinks Within A Database

Apr 29, 2008

I am working on a database for a client. The database has a few worksheets with an overview (contents) worksheet. What I am trying to do is create a hyperlink from the contents page to the corresponding worksheet. I can do this no problem...my problem is that if I add more data to the worksheet the hyperlink is lost. I am linking the sheets via cells so if a cell is moved down to add a new cell the hyperlink is no longer valid. Is there a rule I can create to keep the hyperlink and not have to adjust it every time new data is added.

Magic Hyperlinks

Jul 13, 2009

I have a database in excel. Each row in my database is usable information that has a link to Word files on our server and the database is saved on the server.

Whenever I move the original file which is on the server anywhere it causes all the hyperlinks to change. I have saved it on my desktop then moved it, and it still changes my hyperlinks. I don't understand why my hyperlinks don't just stay they way I created them.

Is there a way to keep my hyperlinks from changing? If you notice the immediate folder of the filename doesn't change.

Original hyperlink:

C:/document and settings/user/microsoft/reports/filename

Hyperlinks To Hidden Sheets?

I have a worksheet with 28 sheets. I want the first sheet to be the only sheet displayed when opening the file and then want people to have the ability to click a hyperlink to unhide a particular sheet. Then when they go back to the main page (via another hyperlink), the sheet that was unhidden will be hidden again. I was able to put together some code from [URL]. When I click on a hyperlink on the main page, I get a "Subscript out of range" error and it highlights Sheets(strSheet).Visible=True from the Worksheet_FollowHyperlink code. I made a basic spreadsheet with just 3 sheets and plugged this code in and it worked fine so I'm not quite sure what the error is. I attached the spreadsheet I'm using.

Create Range Of Hyperlinks Using VBA?

In column A I have a range of file path extensions (i.e., C:UsersJSmithDocumentsModelsHic Sunt DraconesTest.xlsx). What I want is a macro that will use those file path extensions to create hyperlinks in column B.

So far this is what I have:

Sub Hyperlink()
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:=Range("b1").Value, SubAddress:= _
"", TextToDisplay:="Link"
End Sub

This code works for the first cell, but does not work for the rest of the cells in the range. Also. Keep in mind that the range of cells in column A is dynamic - it changes in length.
