    email hyperlink from excel sheet not working

    Hi all

    I am a newbie to the forum and I quite often am able to solve any problem however I am scratching my head a little on a simple little project.

    I have set up a worksheet providing customer details and I have a user form that retrieves the necessary data based on a lookup function. Everything appears to be working fine however when i retrieve the email address of the customer, although the data is displayed correctly, when the user clicks on the email hyperlink, outlook opens up the email message editor and a diiferent email address displays. When testing different customers, the same email address appears in the 'to' box in the email message editor and strangely the email address that always displays is the email address of the first customer that I input into the table.

    Would appreciate any assistance in populating the correct data.

    Hi,
    maybe add a sample workbook stripped from confidential data?

    The reason you keep getting the same email addy is because thats the addy that is hard-coded into the hyperlink (rt click/edit hyperlink)

    Not sure how to use to use a variable email addy in a hyperlink tho, sorry. But Im sure 1 or the Moderators can help with that.

    Hi

    Cannot help - I have the same problem. Excel 2000 with a list of emails has worked succefully for years, but has just stopped opening a new email to complete an order. Win Live email.

    Is there a setting in Excel that has changed somehow. Have checked the hyperlink all seems normal. Have tried entering a new hyperlink, no luck.

    In Excel File Properties, Summary, there is a heading for Hyperlink Base, nothing entered here, should there be something ?

    Your comments appreciated.

    Charlie
