This short video shows how easy our new free Add-In works to make live links in Microsoft Excel 2007 / 2010. If you have to frequently spotcheck URLs in a spread sheet, I think you’ll love how much time it can save you.
When you want to visit any of the URLs, instead of having to copy and paste them from the cell into your browser address bar, or double click in the cell and then press ENTER, all you have to do is press a button once, and the links are all live and clickable.
If you like what you see, you can download our SEO Automatic Excel Add-in here.
I’m not sure why Microsoft couldn’t make Excel links live, but I’m sure glad that Karen Westerman, the Excel Queen could!
