Office 2003, Hyperlinks for web addresses, how to stop?

February 1, 2019 at 00:59:50
Specs: Windows 10, 4G

I would put in a web address, then click space then it would turn blue and become a link.

Now when I do this, I get a non-clickable hyperlink.

Any way to stop this?

Try pressing ENTER instead of SPACE.

Are you sure that a "space" used to turn the text into a hyperlink? Could you be misremembering your actions?

It doesn't do that for me and I see no reason why it should. When entering text in a cell, Excel doesn't do anything to process that text until the user "leaves" the cell, either by tabbing, pressing Enter or clicking another cell.

As an example, enter an invalid formula in a cell, such as =IFa=b then add a space. You won't get any type of error because Excel hasn't processed the entry yet. It's the same thing with a hyperlink entry. It's nothing more than text until you "leave" the cell.
