Q: Hyperlink from excel to specific page .pdf

So I havea pdf (hundreds of pages) that is stored online for my company and I am trying to create a hyperlink in excel to take people a page 15 in the document. I've tried adding #page=15 and when I click the link it still takes me to first page in the document (as a result of url losing the #page=15). When I copy and past the link into the browser it obviously retains the page callout and work correctly.

Any thoughts or solutions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi guys,

First time on here! From Dublin, Ireland!

I am trying to work on a spreadsheet whereby I want a specific hyperlink in an excel cell to open a pdf to a specific page.

Now I have managed to work with some code where I am able to do as such, however I am getting stuck at a very simple part.

The code works and opens the required page in the pdf in internet explorer, however I need different pdfs to open through the hyperlinks in different cells. Unfortunately, when I click a hyperlink, it is opening all the pdfs I've specified. Is there a way to assign the code to one singular cell so that only the required pdf opens through that cell, and similarly different pdfs in different cells?

I have to add hyperlinks to about 100 cells and while a few of them will open the same document, the pages will be different.

Basically, when I click a link, I just want the req'd page in the pdf to open, but it is opening all the pages specified, even ones for different cells.

The following is my code:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim IE As Object
Dim s As String, sFile As String
Dim iPageNum As Long
If Range("J17").Value <> "" Then
sFile = "C:\Passdowns\Linked Procedures\Startup Guide.pdf" '<- Modify to suit
iPageNum = 12
Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Navigate sFile & "#Page=" & iPageNum
IE.Visible = True
End If

You need to loop through the range with a variable and use the value of that to access the cell.
At the moment you are treating the whole array of cells as one.

Hi Guys

I have been reading the post on this subject from 2008, but not getting very far.


I got the excel link to the page to work when I run the macro, but cannot work out how the public sub works, and how to make that a clickable link at cell level.
What I have is an excel spread sheet containing multiple sheets and multiple columns . Each cell within a column will need to have a hyperlink to a different page within one of a number of pdf documents. There are about 6000 links to be made in all.


column a= welds
843 links to doc1.pdf#page=30
944 links to doc2.pdf#page=5

Column d=specification
8124/2 links to doc4.pdf#page=35
8188/2 links to doc4.pdf#page=90

The links must be relative as the finished product of excel and pdf are to be loaded onto a memory stick and supplied to a customer

I was considering converting the xls to html, as the links work there. However as there is so much data the xls formatting is better for readability and printing.

My ideal solution would be single routine, each cell being a clickable link ie click on 843 and link to the appropriate page by calling the macro using 2 cell values variables ie a3,a4 . The macro would then extract the appropriate file and page values from hidden columns.

I know that you have already looked at this once before but your help on this would be very much appreciated

A:Hyperlink to specific page in PDF document

I will post the full code that I have created to link to the pdf page for each cell when it is completed. However I realised that the code

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim IE As Object, strFile As String, iPageNum As Long

If Range("C3").Value <> "" Then
strFile = "C:\Test.pdf"
iPageNum = 2
Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Navigate strFile & "#Page=" & iPageNum
IE.Visible = True
End If

End Sub

needs to be placed in the microsoft objects sheet rather than in a module. This makes the code work...... Doh!!!

I have a excel file with hyperlinks to various pdf files and specific pages using the following macro:

Sub pdfpglink()
Shell ("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe " + ActiveCell.Value)
End Sub
The pdf files are stored on a network drive so I was told that code is the only way to correctly link the page to excel. It works great but my question is, when I right click on the hyperlink and try to edit how it appears in on excel sheet, the macro doesn't work afterwards?

To get the macro to work, you have to use ctrl+z on the hyperlink, but after editing the hyperlink's "Text to display" instead of launching the correct page in IE as it should, it opens IE with a incorrect address and I get the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

I'm assuming the macro needs to be changed so it doesn't rely on what is shown in the excel cell, but I have no clue how or what to do....HELP ME PLEASE!!!!

Hi everyone:

I am new to VB. I have a code that goes from Excel to a specific page in Adobe (which ends up opening it in IE). Problem is that I need it to be able to go on different computers so I am trying to figure out how to tell VB to get the file from the USB flash drive. Every flash drive comes up different on every computer.

Here is my code:
Sub TestPDFlink()
Dim IE As Object, strFile As String, iPageNum As Long
strFile = "F:\folder\nameoffile.pdf"
iPageNum = 125
Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Navigate strFile & "#Page=" & iPageNum
IE.Visible = True
End Sub
So, where do I tell it to go to whichever drive the flash drive comes up as (E:, F:, etc)? Any ideas?

I've looked all over the web and am having no luck. I'm a finance guy doing research.
I want to hyperlink the numberical data in each EXCEL 2007 spreadsheet cell to the specific PDF page that references the cell data. I am using Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard. This process will provide a quick means of substantiating the data in thousands of cells.
I have read articles on named destinations, but the problem seems to be that named destinations are not recognized and even inserting the
"=page#" is not recognized by Excel. The hyperlink will go to the document, but not the specific page I want which is useless when you have about 200 citations within the document.
We have a web server along the lines of file// but if absolutely necesssary I could save to my local if that makes a difference, but that should be a last option.

If anyone has some other ideas about how to do what I want other than hyperlinking to adobe pdfs, then I'm all ears, or do I need a new version like PRO, other pdf software, other spreadsheet program, or other approaches to obtain the same result, like may be a workaround to hyperlink to bookmarks, I set up in adobe?
I appreciate anyone's time and thank you in advance.

I have a question regarding Hyperlinks in excel.

I have the hyperlink names in a column. i.e. ID no. which is the display name for the link.
The link then points to a site for that ID number.

I know that if you highlight the display name & Right click, you have the hyperlink option, you can then copy the hyperlink and paste it in a new column, so that it displays the actual link, which is what I would like to do.

However, I have hundreds of the display names in this column, I'd rather not have to do this on each one.

Is there away I can highlight all of them and extract the actual link to a new column?

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

I am very new to using Macros but I am trying to create a new one that creates a new hyperlink and new file when ever a cell in column A has a value put in it.

What I would like is for the MAcro to take the Value of A1 and impose that value into the name of the new document (which would be created as part of the Macro), which is then shown as a hyperlink in A1.

This process could then repeat down the rows.

Would this be possible?

I am having a problem removing hyperlinks from Excel-the problem is that every time I remove a hyperlink in one cell, hyperlinks appear iand multiply in other cells. Eventually, nearly all cells are hyperlinked. I have copy and pasted (as value only) on a new worksheet only to have the same thing happen in a short time. Is there anyway to mass eliminate hyperlinks? Is this a program bug?

I want to be able to enter a number in a cell and have it automatically become a hyperlink to a row on another worksheet in the same workbook. Say I enter "23" then whenever I click that cell it will take me to row 23 of the other worksheet. Thanks in advance.

A:Excel auto hyperlink to row

I think what you're asking is doable in VBA. But with a little compromise- can be esily achieved with a simple formula. The compromise being that the hyperlink will be an adjacent/another cell and not the actual cell in which you enter the row number for your jump-to location.

Say you enter the the row number you require in cell sheet1!D3, then you could have the hyperlink in sheet1!E3 containing the formula

=HYPERLINK("#Sheet2!" & D3 & ":"& D3,"Row number " & D3)

which would take you to the desired row number in worksheet 2.

Hope this helps. Get get back if you want to rack some brains on the vba solution.

Here is a challenge for all you Excel Gurus. Attached is a macro that when you run it, searches for the file that you have selected in an Excel worksheet. For example, I have a file called testing.cells. I have typed this file in Cell A1. I then select cell A1 and run the macro and voila, the Excel file called testing.cells appears. The reason I do not do a normal Excel hyperlink is that the hyperlink at times does not work if I e-mail it my colleagues since the file is on a server. This is due to how the paths are configured in different computers.

The attached macro works great if I'm hyperlinking to another Excel workbook. I have tried to customize the macro to bring up a pdf file but without success. I'm Excel macro guru. As a matter of fact, the attached macro was given to me by John Walkenback, the author of many Excel books.

I have created excel file which contains group of pending amount in master sheet and backup for that amount is in other sheet
I need to write a macro for this.

For example in master sheet I have Rs 1000 in Column P (say “P1”)(amount only in Column P)
The back up for this amount available in another sheet (say it is in pending detail sheet) column C(C1)

If I run the macro from the backup sheet, it should take the amount of selected cell and search the amount in master sheet. After finding the amount it should create link between master sheet Cell and backup Cell.

Link should be displayed in next column (both master and backup sheet)

Possible Problem - Master sheet may contains same amount in the column- The suggestion for this problem is like creating a link for the cell which doesn’t have hyperlink. Hence, it shouldn’t take a cell if it is having hyper link

Hi there,

I am looking for a solution to a problem I am sure can be solved with excel, although I am a reasonable novice when it comes to excel.

I have 2 workbooks both of which have a column which contains a reference code.

in workbook1 column b is 'REF' and in workbook2(sheet=customers column a is 'REF'. What I would like to be able to do is click on a 'REF' field and it link me to the corresponding data on the other workbook...

I realise this will require two things: first of all a lookup to use the data from the code column in order to 'line up' the records and then a hyperlink function to create a link.

This is what I have so far, yet I am having no joy:

=HYPERLINK(VLOOKUP(B35,'[workbook2.xlsx]Customers'!A2:A5900,3,FALSE) the value returned isn't really the issue(i don't think) if I can get it to point at the field it doesn't matter what is list ed there as long as I can click it!
My apologies if I am making no sense here, like I have said my experience with excel is very limited.
Many thanks in advance for your help

I'd like that reference to be hyperlinked to a similar cell on worksheet "Tab1" where it finds the reference that says "Summary". So basically, if my summary sheet shows an amount of $50, I'd have a reference next to it that says which sheet shows the support for that number, and on the supporting sheet, it would reference that that amount shows up on the summary. I'd like to run a macro that would find those references and hyperlink them to the correct sheets (and if it can do it, to the specific cell on that sheet).

so the hyperlink location is "\\SNOGP01\poshare\PoShare\North Omaha System Files\10 Year Mechanical Plan, major plant equipment\1AC-1A Info & Name Plate.docx"

The next one down would need to change the "1AC-1A" to "1AC-1A-M"

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi all,
Using Excel 2010 and Acrobat X.

I have a spreadsheet with a list of names in one column and email addresses in another column. I want to combine them so that the name is displayed and the email address is a hyperlink. I can do this easily by using =hyperlink("mailto:"&a1,b1). The problem is that I then need to convert the document to PDF. The conversion will keep manual links, but not links created with the hyperlink function. I've seen a couple of suggestions such as saving the spreadsheet to HTML and then converting to PDF or a rather ingenious solution to copy the contents of the worksheet and then use Acrobat X to create a PDF from the clipboard. Both of those work, but they lose things like the borders around the cells and the repeating rows at the top of each page.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I'd like to be able to click on a cell in Excel97 and rather than going to a URL or location in a file, I want to open a folder so I can see what files are in it. Is this possible? If so, how?

A:Creating a hyperlink to a folder from Excel

In Excel, with the cell selected you want the link to appear in, go to Insert>Hyperlink, enter the text you want displayed in the top field and the path to the folder in the "Type the file or web page name" field. It has to be exact, no typos. For example, I just tried it with C:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\My Documents\Miscellaneous and when I clicked on the link it made, it opened that folder.

Being the lazy sort, I just opened that target folder in Windows Explorer first and copied the path from the address bar, then pasted it in. That method also avoids typos.

I have Excel 2007. Today, (never previously), when I click on a hyperlink to send an email to the subject, I get a Microsoft Office Excel message "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator".

To my knowledge I have done nothing to create this. The only remedial action I have tried is a reboot, but the problem persists.

Can anyone offer any solutions please?
