    Re: Excel Escaping spaces in hyperlinks

    could you explain what ‘escaping’ the spaces means?

    i have tried hyperlinks with spaces, and i dont have any problems with it. i was trying to recreate the event you were experiencing, but i dont really know what you mean…

    frig sample, i have a server named ‘XI’ it is the main file server…

    it has a folder called “Departmental Procedures”

    if i type it in excel as ‘\xiDepartmental Procedures’ it follows the link fine.

    if i type it like \xiDepartmental%20Procedures it works fine also.

    ???
