Using Smart Tags

Smart Tags help you integrate actions typically performed in other programs directly in Excel. For example, you can insert a financial symbol to get a stock quote, add a person's name and address in a worksheet to the contacts list in Microsoft Outlook, or copy and paste information with added control. Excel analyzes the data you type in a cell and recognizes certain types that it marks with Smart Tags. The types of actions you can take depend on the type of data in the cell with the Smart Tag.

Change Smart Tag Options

Click the Tools menu, and then click AutoCorrect options.

Click the Smart Tags tab.

Select the Label Data With Smart Tags check box.

Select the check boxes with the Smart Tags you want.

Click the Show Smart Tags As list arrow, and then select a display option.

To check the worksheet for new Smart Tags, click Check Workbook.

To add more Smart Tags, click More Smart Tags, and then follow the online instructions.

Click OK.
