I'm using Excel 2010 and I have a simple problem where I need to hyperlink a certain part of my text. My cell content is as simple as "For blablabla, click here." I want to add a hyperlink to the "here".

Does anyone know how can I do this?

Actually, you can't. The link gets applied to the whole cell (even with a formula using HYPERLINK). You could try to embed an object in the cell but that would probably be overkill. –  JMax Jan 24 '12 at 13:32

I think Excel does not allow creating hyperlinks on only part of the text in a cell. The hyperlink can only be set on the complete cell.

But there is something you can do. You can make "here" look like hyperlink and the rest of the text look normal.

How to do it? Just get into the cell in edit mode (Press F2), select the text "For blabla.."; remove its underline and change the color to black.

This way you will have a visual feel of just "here" being a hyperlink but the other text will remain "clickable"! :)

Hope this helps!
