Change Excel text cells in hyperlinks

Recommended Posts

bubke

Hi,

Is there someone who could help me with converting Excel text cells in cells with hyperlinks? I've many hyperlinks in Excel in a column, but they are in text format.

What I want is that the links are clickable, so that they open in a browser. I don't have many experience with Office in combination with autoit. Maybe there is someone who has an example script. Any help is very welcome!

Thank you :graduated:

This is just that. An Example. Please test before using it.

#include <Excel.au3>
$Count = 0
$oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen(@DesktopDir & "\Book.xls", 0);0 = file not visible
$Count = $oExcel.Worksheets(1).Usedrange.Rows.Count
For $i = 1 To $Count
    $sCellValue = _ExcelReadCell($oExcel, $i, 2);row = $i number, col = 2 (B)
    _ExcelHyperlinkInsert($oExcel, $sCellValue, $sCellValue, $sCellValue, $i, 2)
    ;Correct use:
    ;_ExcelHyperlinkInsert($oExcel, $sLinkText, $sAddress, $sScreenTip, $sRangeOrRow [, $iColumn = 1])
Next
_ExcelBookClose($oExcel)
$oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen(@DesktopDir & "\Book.xls", 1);1 = file is visible

For a particular Excel hyperlink, you can set the property directly:

$oExcel.ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks(1).TextToDisplay = "Link text here"
