When I was researching why my command buttons keep changing size, I came accross a comment suggesting the use of hyperlinks or images instead. I like the idea of a hyperlink as it would fit better on my dashboard, but I'm not sure wher to start.

Does anyone have the method for attaching hyperlink to VBA?


Thanks as always

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

For Images or Shapes, you can right click on the object then "Assign Macro..."

I'm not aware of any similar way to assign a macro to a hyperlink.

The closest workaround I can think of would be to associate macro code through the Worksheet_FollowHyperlink event.
You can make the hyperlink target the same cell that holds the hyperlink, then execute the code in the Worksheet_FollowHyperlink procedure.
