so i have been creating links from the Urls for the reports.
but now they are too long.
is there another way to open the below url?

here is what i have been doing:

myurl = selection.Value
Selection.Cut Destination:=Selection.Offset(0, 1)
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add anchor:=Selection, Address:=myurl, _
TextToDisplay:="View Map"

and later when the user double-clicks the cell the google map opens.
these are from gps tracking devices.

is there another way to open the below url?
thanks.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sou...o:33.5524 -84.2512+(2m0ft 13:10 11249-500-913)

maybe but i have to submit it to that site?
when i clicked on your link i saw tinyurl.com addres very briefly then it opened in google.

also, these reports are run daily and sent to SharePoint.
there are supervisors all over looking at what their techs were for the day.

i am hoping for something a more direct piece of code.
