Default hyperlink to open pdf files in excel

Hello everyone,



Need help with a formula to open pdf files for the list in excel. A sample sheet is attached for your reference.

Thanks in advance!

You don't need a formula if the "ClickHere For pdf" are hyperlinks. I know they look like hyperlinks but that may not be the case if they are not opening. Just click on the hyperlink, which should launch your default pdf viewer. You will likely get a security pop-up warning but 'OK' it to view the pdf. It works on my machine.

Also, are your pdfs really where you think they are? Your screenshot suggests that the pdf is in c:\you\documents, but your formula is looking in c:\transmittals.

Also, you are looking for a file called, "SD for Structure 01 - Guard House Tanker Discharge
", rather than "446-02-476- ... etc" (again, I'm basing this on the screenshot)

Now the link is edited. But still cannot open the specified file. Sample worksheet attached. Please advise.
Pdf file name is "446-02-476-00452-21 SD for Structure 01 - Guard House Tanker Discharge.pdf"

Is the problem related only to that pdf or other pdfs as well? If it is just one pdf then it may be corrupt or had the wrong file extension applied to it somehow.

i think the problem is your setup/permissions. the hyperlink is fine and appears to be working from what i can see.
