How Can I Display Another Cell As Hyperlink Text

Oct 16, 2008

I have a workbook that has a main sheet which provides stats from other sheets within the workbook. I have a hyperlink which goes to a certain place of sheet 2 and the displayed text shows the contents of a cell on sheet 2.

I know it's possible to have the hyperlink go to a certain cell on another workbook as opposed to worksheet, but I cant display the contents of a cell on another workbook as the text on the hyperlink.

Rollover Hyperlink On A Cell Already Got Text In?

Apr 25, 2014

I have cells which already contain text, which I need to keep. But I want to add a rollover hyperlink to make them changes colour when the mouse hovers over them.

Hyperlink & Non-Hyperlinked Text In Same Cell

Sep 8, 2006

If, say cell A1, contains text such as:
"This Forum is wonderful, to see a great example for a post click here." <This is not an actual link here!>
Is it possible to have the "click here" part as a hyperlink, and not the entire cell?
Or- do i have to add an "image" or something similar to which i can add the hyperlink and then anchor the "image" to that cell?

Hyperlink Part Of Cell Text

Jan 31, 2008

in order to hyperlink a single peice of text in a cell and not the whole cell I have created a shape with no fill or line but added text. I then hyperlinked it to a location in the workbook. When I set the Move and size with cell property I am not geting the expected result. If I resize a row well above that cell, the object isn't following the cell it wa placed in. I would be happy with alternative mechanisms for putting independantly linked text.

Extracting Hyperlink Text From Cell For Editing?

Jun 6, 2013

I have inherited multiple spreadsheets with thousands of hyperlinks in a single column, from all of which I need to extract the hyperlink text to audit it and edit it. The hyperlinks are only displaying less than useful words such as "Go To" "View" or "Click Here", for example.

Manually, I can right-click on the cell, select Edit Hyperlink, press Ctrl+End to select the entire link, press Ctrl+C to copy it, click on OK to close the editing dialogue, then paste it in the destination cell. That's easy, and good if you only have a few to do, but very tiresome if you have more than a dozen. Life's too short to do all those I need to do manually with a 29 day deadline!

I tried setting up a Macro to do it for me, but couldn't get it to work down a column and paste the result in the destination cell on the same row as each successive cell was located. I do very little Macro work, and I find Excel to be less than intuitive in this respect, so I gave up. (At least in Word you can see the whole step-by-step process in the Macro Editing window and easily fix it, if need be...).

One previous discussion, dating from 2006, supplied two answers. See [URL]

Should I set up a Macro and insert the above Function into it? Or is there a completely different way to do it? how to do this in Excel 2003/WinXP is very welcome.

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.

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".

Prevent Display Of Hyperlink Screen Tip

Feb 19, 2009

I'm working with text boxes in Excel that have hyperlinks attached to defined names on a worksheet. Basically just to navigate around a large sheet.

They work fine, but when the mouse is hovered over the text box it automatically displays the address of the defined name, which looks messy and I want to get rid of it.

I have tried inserting a single space in the screen tip box, but that displays a small rectangular box. I have also tried "" hoping nullstring maybe interpreted as not to display, but it instead displays the speech marks.

Has anybody done this before? I've seen it done, but I have no idea how the model creator did it.

Hyperlink To Closed Files Display Error When Clicked

Sep 6, 2006

I am automatically generating a hyperlink to another document. The link that generates is: (I don't know if this qualifies as code, but I'll tag it anyhow...)

06-09-05 0000020 Name/06-09-05 0000020 Name.xls# 'Notes'A5

with 06-09-05 0000020 Name as a directory off the current App.path, and 06-09-05 0000020 Name.xls being the name of the file in the directory. It does have a sheet called "Notes". The thing of it is, the hyperlink takes me to the right place, it just gives me an error message every time saying "Reference not valid". How can it be taking me to the right place, and still giving me the error?

Display Text In A Cell

Jan 16, 2009

irst Problem:

I need a little help with the same employee time sheet that I am working on in Excel 2007. I have a dropdown box in Cell E1 that lets the employee select their name. Example, if the choices in the drop down are: Smith, John Jones, Paul Nelson, Bob and Hall, Bill. So the names are Last Name, First Name. Once the employee chooses their name, I would like Cell G1 to display "Hello (E1). Welcome to AA Company." (where E1 is the employee's name but First Name Last Name - so it is reverse order of the choices in the dropdown). If E1 is left blank, I would like Cell G1 to display "Hello. Welcome to AA Company."

Second Problem:

How can I get rid of #VALUE! in a cell without messing up the formula of that cell or the cell it corresponds to??

Cell Will Not Display All Text Characters? !

Aug 14, 2008

I pasted in 1369 characters (including spaces) to a cell, and NO MATTER what I try, all characters will not print.

If I have the cell up for formatting on the function line, all text can be seen, but for some reason it cuts off the last sentance or more and will not show it in print preview.

I've tried all kinds of cell text formatting, cell merging, etc. with no luck. The only work around I found is to just have the "missing text" on the following row.

Display Text If Another Cell Filled

Apr 26, 2007

Is it possible to display text based on the contents of another cell?

I am creating a report that includes all our data for the year per month - this builds dynamically every time i create the next months report.

So far i have data for,

Column A-- Column B
Jan - have data
Feb - have data
March - have data
April - no data yet...

In this example i would want the following text to appear in another cell,

Statistics: January - March 2007

It would dynamically update to January - April 2007... once April cell had data.

It's probably very easy but after several attempts i can't get it working as such.
