Hi Guys

Hope you can help

I previously had some excellent assistance with this however, I have adapted and upgraded the attached sheet (after much deliberation) and now it is ready to use, I am encountering some problems in getting the hyperlinks through a lookup.

When I create a hyperlink in column X against the supplier reference and use the lookup formula in cell I2 to grab the hyperlink, it is now not allowing me to click the hyperlinked 'folder' - instead it is just displaying the formula ??

When I hover over the link it appears to want to work and it was working before and now I do not know why it is not happening ??

Am I not formatting something correctly?

Any suggestions would be most welcome

Try wrapping the VLOOKUP formula into a HYPERLINK formula:

=HYPERLINK(VLOOKUP(G2,C6:X16,22,FALSE))
