Dear Experts:

below macro converts the selected cell (containing a file path)  into a hyperlink. How does this code have to be re-written so that the hyperlink is created in the cell next to the selected cell so that the initially selected cell is not changed

Example:

Cell A1: C:\test\myfile.xls

After running the macro the sheet looks like this:
Cell A1: C:\test\myfile.xls
Cell B1: C:\test\myfile.xls (converted into a hyperlink)

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

Regards, Andreas

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

Hi Andreas,

Please try this:

Sub ConvertToHyperlink()

    ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Excel.Selection.Offset(,1), Address:=ActiveCell.Value, TextToDisplay:=ActiveCell.Value

End Sub
