Hyperlink : Excel formula



The HYPERLINK function creates a shortcut that jumps to another location in the current workbook, or opens a document stored on a network server, an intranet, or the Internet. When you click a cell that contains a HYPERLINK function, Excel jumps to the location listed, or opens the document you specified. Syntax HYPERLINK(link_location, [friendly_name]) The HYPERLINK function syntax has the following arguments: Link_location Required. The path and file name to the document to be opened. Link_location can refer to a place in a document — such as a specific cell or named range in an Excel worksheet or workbook, or to a bookmark in a Microsoft Word document. The path can be to a file that is stored on a hard disk drive. The path can also be a universal naming convention (UNC) path on a server (in Microsoft Excel for Windows) or a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) path on the Internet or an intranet. Note Excel for the web the HYPERLINK function is valid for web addresses (URLs) only. Link_location can be a text string enclosed in quotation marks or a reference to a cell that contains the link as a text string. If the jump specified in link_location does not exist or cannot be navigated, an error appears when you click the cell. Friendly_name Optional. The jump text or numeric value that is displayed in the cell. Friendly_name is displayed in blue and is underlined. If friendly_name is omitted, the cell displays the link_location as the jump text. Friendly_name can be a value, a text string, a name, or a cell that contains the jump text or value. If friendly_name returns an error value (for example, #VALUE!), the cell displays the error instead of the jump text.
