HTML Link for UPS tracking number

Hi, I need to create an excel spreadsheet that has clickable UPS tracking numbers. I have the tracking numbers, but need an HTML link template so people can click a link to see shipment status. Thanks in advance for any direction.

AFAIK, the UPS tracking number is click-able....

Try right clicking the Tracking number (link), and pasting the link location into Excel...

Not a SQL question, but you can create this formula in an Excel cell row 1;

=HYPERLINK("http://ups.com?trackingnumber=" & A1, "Track")
 
assuming A1 contains your tracking link. Copy down the formula to all of your other rows.

kselvia- that is what I am looking for. Your weblink did not seem to pass the trackingnumber url parameter to auto bring up the shipment information, but this seems to work: =HYPERLINK("http://wwwapps.ups.com/WebTracking/track?HTMLVersion=5.0&loc=en_US&Requester=UPSHome&WBPM_lid=homepage%2Fct1.html_pnl_trk&trackNums="&B2&"&track.x=Tracka", "Track")
