Dear Experts:

For the currently selected cell(s) (may be just one cell selected or several) do the following running a macro:

Convert the currently selected cell(s) (Cells contain a network path such as C:\\myfolder\\etc.) ...
... into a hyperlink where the address and text to display is the same.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Try this:

Sub ConvertToHyperlink()
    ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:= _
        ActiveCell.Value, TextToDisplay:=ActiveCell.Value
End Sub

Open in new window


When you run it, it will make the current cell a hyperlink to the contents of the cell.
Obviously, it does not validate that the current cell is a valid path.
