    Question How can I stop Outlook from automatically opening a new email when I click on an email address in Excel?



    In my Excel spreadsheet I have a column to store the email addresses of my clients. Every time I click on the text of an email address, it automatically opens Outlook with a new message composed to that address. How do I stop this from happening? I don't even use Outlook for my email and this is really frustrating. I've tried changing the format of the column to no avail.

    Thank you; your help is most appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to MrExcel.

    Try this with a copy of your sheet. Press ALT + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor, Insert > Module and paste the following into the white space on the right:

    Code:
    Sub DelHy()
    ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Delete
    End Sub
    Press ALT + F11 to return to your sheet, Tools > Macro > Macros, highlight DelHy and click the Run button.
