Google Spreadsheets: Placing a Hyperlink in a Cell

Posted December 1, 2006 by Rob Rogers in Google

Google Spreadsheets allows hyperlinks to be placed into the cells of your spreadsheet. You can either display the entire URL or use a simple title for the link, just follow this tech-recipe:


To display the entire URL:

Simply type the URL into the cell. When this cell is selected, an icon will appear. Clicking on the icon will take the viewer to the URL in a new window.

To display a title instead of the URL:

You will need to use a formula to display the title.

=hyperlink(“URL”,”title”)
(example: =hyperlink(“www.tech-recipes.com”,”Tech-Recipes”)
