SQL Question

Activating SQL imported hyperlinks within Excel

Morning All,

I have some SQL reports outputting to Excel templates & would like to mask a reference with a link to the related within a internal web based application.

Adding the hyperlink function manually works as expected but I would like to construct the link automatically as part of the report output.

I've got the function being compiled within the excel document but the link isn't 'active' just shown as plain text which from what I have read is a limitation on Excels part, is there anyway to add some VBA to the worksheet or workbook which will activate/re-format these links when the document is opened (simulate F2 & Enter)? via VBA? (I have limited knowledge of VBA & Excel)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards.
