Insert a hyperlink in table

You can use Data Table Generator to display links and hyperlinks in the table – either as clickable text or as buttons, icons or images. These hyperlinks can link to any URL, for example, another page on your site, an external URL or a link to download a file.

You can add a hyperlink to any text-based fields that you’re displaying.

If you need to add hyperlinks in Data Table you can choose one of the following hyperlink types: a link to another cell with a link, or web page link.

In order to insert a hyperlink in the table you need:

  1. Open an Editor.
  2. Select a cell. This should be a cell into which you want to insert your hyperlink.
  3. Add a formula – HYPERLINK(“URL”, “link label”)insert hyperlink in data table
    url – The full URL of the link location enclosed in quotation marks, or a reference to a cell containing such a URL. Only certain link types are allowed.
    http://https://mailto:aim:ftp://gopher://telnet://and news:// are permitted;  If no protocol is specified, http:// is assumed, and is prepended to url

    Hyperlinked CellFormula
    Google    =HYPERLINK(“”, “Google”)    =HYPERLINK(“”)


  4. The second case in which you might want to use the HYPERLINK function is when the link could change. In this case, you can use a cell reference instead of writing in the URL.

For example, you could use =HYPERLINK(B2, “friendly name”)This way, whenever the URL  in cell B2 changes, the link will automatically update. Clicking on a cell with a link in it will take you to wherever that link is pointing.

If your Excel and Google google sheets files contain hyperlinks, the formulas are taken into account when importing.
