    Hyperlink formula (2K 9.0.2720)

    I'm trying to write a formula to create hyperlinks to a master document list. I've done this in the past but for some (and probably very stupid) reason I can't get this to work.

    Any ideas?

    Can you create a working hyperlink formula with a fixed hyperlink string instead of a concatenation?

    (The hyperlink in C2 points to a different path than you mention when I open the workbook)

    Yes, but I have hundreds to create. I'd rather use a formula.

    The link reference was copied from the inserted links window from hyperlink edit.

    You have commas in your link location. Are there commas in the source directory's names?

    Thought I was onto something there.

    How about this then.
    Is there supposed to be a space after the word instruction in the Level III - Work Instructions directory?

    Info in cells D2 does not have the space, while the hyperlink cell has a space (data in hyperlink cell from cell B2)

    The problem has already been solved, thanks to mbarron, so the following isn't relevant any more.

    I asked whether a HYPERLINK formula with a fixed address string worked, not because I was about to suggest that as a workaround, but because I wanted to know if there was a problem with the path as such or something else. As you have found, it turned out to be basically a typo.
