Hi! If you dont want every line in your pivot to be an URL then you can place this IF statement:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

  On Error Resume Next

  'Select wich lines to be an URL - in this case first two letters in Target refering to a serverpath _

  change number 2 to 3 and "\" to "www" if you want it to link to web-adresses.

  If Left(Target.Value, 2) = "\" Then

     ActiveWorkbook.FollowHyperlink Target.Value, NewWindow:=True

  End If


End Sub

Cheers! And thank you so much for the code!

Best Regards,
