Using brackets & quotation marks in the =HYPERLINK() function in Excel

Hello,

In the help section for the =HYPERLINK() function in Excel (2013), several examples are included showing how a hyperlink formula is created for various types of destinations. In some of these examples, brackets & quotation marks are used and in others, they are not.

Can someone explain the rationale for the use of these characters (ie their purpose and when to include them).

Thanks

Hi,

the brackeets are used around the destination file if you want to specify a more precise destination like a bookmark in WD or named range in XL
