How to Create Hyperlinks in multiple cells using EXcel VBA

How to Link Cells to Files/Folders using Excel VBA

There are many cases where we want to have a Hyperlink on a cell that opens a document / image etc.
In the following snippet we can see how that works

The sheet is the Master Sheet, which contains the list of Products that are compared. The comparison reports for these products are placed in separate files in the same folder.

The hyperlink uses Relative path - you can hardcode this to any particular folder

Sub Create_HyperLinks()

Dim i1 As Integer
Dim sA, sB As String

For i1 = 2 To Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
    If LenB(Trim$(Cells(i1, 3).Value)) <> 0 Then
        sA = Trim$(Cells(i1, 1).Value)
        sB = Trim$(Cells(i1, 2).Value)
        sA = "Compared_" & sA & "_" & sB & ".xls"
        Sheets(1).Range("C" & i1).Hyperlinks.Add Cells(i1, 3), "CompareReports\" & sA
    End If
Next i1

End Sub

arText = Split(sText, ";")

Range("D16:D" & CStr(16 + UBound(arText))).Value = WorksheetFunction.Transpose(arText)

How to convert Excel Text to Comments using VBA

Convert Excel Range to Comments using VBA

We have seen how to Copy Comments in an Excel Sheet to a Range; now let us see how to do the opposite

Our reference Excel has Text that needs to be converted as Comments on Column E, which needs to be placed as comments

Sub Convert_Text_To_Comments()

Dim sText As String     ' Comment String
Dim i1 As Long          ' Counter
Dim sUser As String     ' User Name

sUser = Application.UserName

For i1 = 1 To ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
    sText = ActiveSheet.Cells(i1, 5).Value
    'Deletes Existing Comments
    Cells(i1, 3).ClearComments
    ' Creates Comment
    Cells(i1, 3).AddComment
    Cells(i1, 3).Comment.Text Text:=sUser & Chr(10) & sText
Next i1

End Sub

If you already have comments and try to AddComment then Runtime Error 1004 will be thrown. That is why it is better to Remove the existing comments (ClearComments) and proceed with Adding new comment
