Activating hyperlinks


I

infodex

In Excel 2010, I have a range of cells into which I have copied and
pasted URLs. They all pasted as text and I want them to be active
hyperlinks.

I can activate them one at a time by simply positioning the cursor at
the end of the URL and pressing Enter but I want to activate them all
at once.

I tried:

- Select the range of cells
- Right click
- Click Hyperlink
- Select "Link to: Existing File or Web Page"
- Select "Look In: Browse the Web"

That simply opens my browser.

How can I activate the whole range at once?

try (if your strings are not in column A then modify the code):

Sub ActivateHyperlinks()
Dim rngC As Range
Dim LRow As Long

With ActiveSheet
LRow = .Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
For Each rngC In .Range("A1:A" & LRow)
.Hyperlinks.Add _
anchor:=rngC, _
Address:=IIf(Left(rngC.Text, 4) <> "http", _
"http://" & rngC.Text, rngC.Text)
Next
End With
End Sub

For future reference:

- Select the target cells.
- Home > Styles > Cell Styles > Hyperlink

Easy peasy.
