Chapter 22. Using Hyperlinks > Creating a Hyperlink in a Cell

Creating a Hyperlink in a Cell

If you're creating a hyperlink to a Web site and you already know the site's URL, you don't even have to choose Insert, Hyperlink. Type the URL into a cell, and Excel will turn it into the appropriate hyperlink. If the URL begins with www, Excel assumes it's an HTTP (Web site) URL. If the URL doesn't start with www, you need to include the prefix http://. (If the URL uses some other prefix, such as ftp://, you must, of course, type that.)

Troubleshooting: Excel doesn't turn my URLs into hyperlinks!

Excel turns obvious URLs into hyperlinks by default. If it doesn't perform this service for you, you need to adjust an AutoCorrect setting. Choose Tools, AutoCorrect Options, click the AutoFormat As You Type tab, and select the Internet And Network Paths With Hyperlinks check box.
