Dear Experts,

I do not have any experience applying VBA in Word, could you please advise how to do with VBA converting texts to hyperlink?

Basically I have a file on path D:\ASN\Test.xls, for this I would like to create hyperlink like it is done manually in the attached Word file.

My final target anyway to assign this file name to a variable like FileName = "D:\ASN\Test.xls", and based on that create hyperlink.

In my daily work have several such paths which needs to be sent for people in mail, so would like if the word could generate them.

thanks,

In the meantime I have working macro in Excel for such target in the attached Code,

Do you think that is it possible to do this in Word? The only difference would be just that the hyperlink should be for example in the next row instead of cell A1


Sub CreateHyperlinks2()
Dim FileLink As String
    
FileLink = "D:\ASN\Test.xls"

Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Formula = "=HYPERLINK(""" & FileLink & """,""" & FileLink & """)"
Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Font.Color = 16711680

End Sub

Open in new window

See if this works.


Sub CreateHyperlink()

    Dim FileName As String
    FileName = "D:\ASN\Test.xls"
    
    Dim rng As Range
    Set rng = Selection.Range
    rng.InsertAfter vbCrLf
    rng.Collapse wdCollapseEnd

    ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=rng, Address:=FileName
    
End Sub

Open in new window
