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://.

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoI have two types of data in my pivot table that would use a hyperlink: 1.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?
- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoThis works very well, but I'm trying to figure out how to have a shorter friendly name to click on rather than a long URL.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.

Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
' MsgBox Sh.Name
' MsgBox Target.Address
If Target.Cells.Count = 1 Then
On Error Resume Next
ActiveWorkbook.FollowHyperlink Address:=CStr(Target.Value), NewWindow:=True
On Error GoTo 0
