Two hyperlinks in a cell in Excel - possible?

hi Folks
Got asked an odd question...the person wanted to know if it was possible to have two hyperlinks in the same cell. I was inclined to say No. But wanted to check first. I'm sure it can be done with some VBA wizardry but it's not that high a priority for the person. Is it possible?

As a work around, you could add a hyperlink into the cell, then add a comment to that cell, and insert the 2nd hyperlink to that comment.

Hello,

your initial hunch is correct. You cannot create more than one hyperlink in a cell, not even with VBA.

cheers, teylyn

I tries peter's suggestion above, but the comment hyperlink does not appear to be clickable

There is a method/workaround where you could use the OLE features of Excel to insert objects from programs
that support multiple hyperlinks.

This clunky method uses a vlookup to make the cell dynamic and allow a choice of hyperlinks

That was bad luck, the question closed while I was researching!
(and there also other solutions out there)

@Eirman - this user just asked me in passing because he had come across it once before. I think the mrexcel solution would be the equivalent of a sledgehammer and a nut :-). He just wanted an easy way and while my feeling was that it wasn't possible I just wanted to check for him. But thanks for looking to research it anyway :-) appreciated.
