 How to create clickable hyperlinks in pivot table?

Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2014-08-28

You can easily click a hyperlink to link to its webpage in a worksheet, but if you create a pivot table which contains hyperlinks, the hyperlinks will not be clickable. Do you have any good ideas to solve this problem in Excel?

The hyperlinks don’t work in pivot table by default, but fortunately, you can create a VBA code to make the hyperlinks be clickable in pivot table.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Then choose your used worksheet from the left Project Explorer pane, double click it to open a Module, and then copy and paste following VBA code into the blank Module:

VBA code: Create clickable hyperlinks in pivot table

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
'Update 20140814
If Target.Cells.Count <> 1 Then Exit Sub
On Error Resume Next
Application.ActiveWorkbook.FollowHyperlink Address:=CStr(Target.Value), NewWindow:=True
End Sub


3. Then save and close this code, go back to your worksheet, and now, when you click the hyperlink in your pivot table, the hyperlink will be activated and link to its webpage.

Note: This code is only available for the webpage links which begin with Http://.

I have two types of data in my pivot table that would use a hyperlink: 1. a hyperlink to a document located on a shared drive. 2. an email address that I would like to use the mailto link to open an email. The macro above works for the document, but I can't figure out how to make it work for the email. Any ideas?

This works very well, but I'm trying to figure out how to have a shorter friendly name to click on rather than a long URL. I have 3 columns of different links and they all run together visually. A symbol or even a friendly name based on a previous cell in that row would be excellent.
