Would it be acceptable to put a formula column to the right of the results columns?
=HYPERLINK(B1)
or make the dynamic columns hidden and create 3 columns to the right so you have
=A1
=HYPERLINK(B1)
=C1

Hi bruno_boccara,

If you don't want to create a macro and as long as you don't mind an additional column, then just create a new column alongside your column of URLs. (here, col B)

In the new column type in the formula =HYPERLINK(B). Then copy the formula down the rest of the  entries.

I do not want to add manually formula.

If I have to create a macro , it is also ok with me. what will be the macro ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Public Sub Convert_To_Hyperlinks()
    Dim Cell As Range
    For Each Cell In Intersect(Selection, ActiveSheet.UsedRange)
        If Cell <> "" Then
            ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Cell, Cell.Value
        End If
    Next
End Sub

You may try this.

Sub MakeRangeHyper(ByRef LinkRange As Range)
      Dim iterCell As Range
      For Each iterCell In Intersect(LinkRange, LinkRange.Worksheet.UsedRange)
            LinkRange.Worksheet.Hyperlinks.Add iterCell, iterCell.Value2
      Next iterCell
End Sub

Open in new window


You should call this sub with a reference to cells that have link addresses. Example:

Sub StartHyper()
    MakeRangeHyper ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange
    MakeRangeHyper ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("B4:B5")
    MakeRangeHyper ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("B4:B5")
End Sub

Open in new window
