    Overflow error, long processing time

    I have a column with image names. For example; image.jpg.

    I want the code to convert the image name to a clickable hyperlink. When i1 is set as integer, I will get an Overflow error. Changed it to Long and now it works. However, it takes about 2 minutes for the code to complete the operation and the sheet is inaccessible.

    I only have a few images in my sheet so I do not understand why it would take a couple of minutes to convert to a hyperlink. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    you forgot to swith off the display before the loop to speed up the procedure !
    See VBA help of ScreenUpdating property …

    A good code doesn't use Goto

    But it's not necessary to create hyperlink to open / view a file !
    Easier way is to control a double click event for example …
    Attach an example workbook without any hyperlink, just the column of file name,
    and I could post a code example …

    I will also suggest you use .Value property rather than .Text which may be slow if you have a lot of rows.

    Cool Try this !


    Just by a double click on the file name without any hyperlink on the cell,
    if the cell is in column B and the file exists in the same workbook's path,
    code to insert directly in the Sheet1 worksheet module class (not a standard one) :
