With Excel 2010, for step 6, I had to select the shape then choose Hyperlink from the Insert menu at the top. (Using the right-click method attached the hyperlink to the entire cell.)

Is there a way of automatically updating multiple links in a cell if rows above it have be added/deleted?

I have a problem whereby adding an extra row causes the link to now point a cell one row out

I am using insert shapes and linking that way as described in this article in order to support multiple links in the cell

That is a fantastic idea! Way less hassle than making small pictures of each letter/word and inserting them into the cell... derp.
