Add Hyperlinks to Cells in VSTO and Aspose.Cells

To add hyperlinks to cells in a spreadsheet, take the following steps:

  1. Set up the worksheet:
    1. Instantiate an Application object.(VSTO only.)
    2. Add a Workbook.
    3. Get the first sheet.
    4. Add text to the cells that you’ll add a hyperlink to.
  2. Add hyperlink.
  3. Save the document.

These steps are shown in the code examples below. The first examples shows how to use VSTO with either C# to add a hyperlink to a cell. The examples that follow show how to do the same thing using Aspose.Cells for .NET, again using C#.

The code samples generate an Excel file that has a hyperlink in cell A1 on the first worksheet.


A hyperlink is added to cell A1.


 //Instantiate the Application object.

Excel.Application ExcelApp = Application;

//Add a Workbook.

Excel.Workbook objBook = ExcelApp.Workbooks.Add(System.Reflection.Missing.Value);

//Get the First sheet.

Excel.Worksheet objSheet = (Excel.Worksheet)objBook.Sheets["Sheet1"];

//Define a range object(A1).

Excel.Range _range;

_range = objSheet.get_Range("A1", "A1");

//Add a hyperlink to it.

objSheet.Hyperlinks.Add(_range, "", Type.Missing, "Click to go to Aspose site", "Aspose Site!");

//Save the excel file.


//Quit the Application.



 //Instantiate a new Workbook object.

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();

//Get the First sheet.

Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];

//Define A1 Cell.

Aspose.Cells.Cell cell = worksheet.Cells["A1"];

//Add a hyperlink to it.

int index = worksheet.Hyperlinks.Add("A1", 1, 1, "");

worksheet.Hyperlinks[index].TextToDisplay = "Aspose Site!";

worksheet.Hyperlinks[index].ScreenTip = "Click to go to Aspose site";

//Save the excel file.
