Excel 2000 hyperlinks

  Stevie D 16:20 24 Nov 03

I am trying to create a flat file Excel 2000 database which includes hyperlinks to web pages.

I am typing the URL into a cell and then right clicking the cell - as the help suggests - to select the hyperlink option from the pop up menu but this is greyed out.

Can anybody please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Did you press Enter after adding URL to the cell, it works OK with my setup

You could try this... right click the cell you want the link in, select hyperlink from the menu, you can then navigate to wherever you wish,(the web, another folder, another PC etc) then just click ok when done and the link will be added.

Thanks every body for your replies.

I think I have got to the bottom of this problem. The workbook was set up to be shared - cancelling the shared properties allowed me to add hyperlinks at will.

Before I removed the shared work book property I could chand anything I tried exceot for the hyperlinks - is this a known bug in Excel 2000?
