    Hey guys,

    I have several thousand URLs that are in NON hyperlinked form (They're in a text file) that need to hyperlinked.

    I have a tool that can crawl through a site and get URLs in URL#TITLE form.

    Do you guys have any ideas on how to get these non hyperlinked urls in hyperlinked form so that the tool can crawl?

    Okay I should describe it more clearly. I have several 1000 web addresses like

    http://g00gle.com

    but they're not in hyperlink form. I need them to be links

    I've tried copy and pasting into an ICQ conversation, and the links were made. However I have way too many URLs to keep doing that.

    cant you just copy and paste into notepad and save the page as html, then open that file in a web browser?

    That will convert to hyperlink.

    This is so funny cuz i had the same issue last night :) You can use the find and replace method in notepad but the problem is at the end of the url. If you have .com/ or .org/ you can't just replace the slash with " because you will end up with href=http:/"/" :( Not good! So the solution i cam up with was a macro for excel.....just create a macro and copy the code below and run it!

    Code:
    ' Converts each text hyperlink selected into a working hyperlink
    '
        For Each xCell In Selection
            ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=xCell, Address:=xCell.Formula
        Next xCell
    '
    just make sure the list is one column! Worked for me :D

    The way I've done it is with a spreadsheet, you can also do anchor text.

    why not do this with php - pretty easy if you have the urls one to a line.
