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

You need to define a name for the range you are wanting to hyperlink to. Once you do this it does not matter how many row are inserted before or after, it will hyperlink to that range.

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