I have a spreadsheet with a COMMENTS column.
One of the cells in that column has an email address in it *** Email address is removed for privacy ***
somehow Excel has decided to make that cell BLUE characters with UNDERLINE and I cannot edit it, When I click on it, Outlook pops up and wants to send an email to that address.
I have right clicked on the cell and verified that FORMAT is TEXT like the entire column is supposed to be but I cannot get rid of the BLUE text and UNDERLINE.
Any ideas how to fix this and get rid of the UNDERLINE and make the text black like everything else in that column?
any ideas how this happened to that particular cell of the spreadsheet?
Keys to the Problem cell format
As you've discovered, the cell has automatically become a hyperlink (more on this below).
If you want direct access to the cell, click and hold on that cell for a couple of seconds and it will not launch the hyperlink.
Alternately, select a non-hyperlinked cell near it and use the arrow keys to navigate to the cell.
Tap F2 to edit the cell's contents or
Delete to remove them.
If you do not want cells with email addresses, URLs, etc to be converted automatically to hyperlinks then get yourself into
Excel, Options and select Proofing from the left side then click
Auto-Correct options in the right pane.
In the AutoCorrect dialog, go to the
AutoFormat As You Type tab and uncheck the Internet and Network paths with hyperlinks option.
OK all the way out.
In this method we will try to Boot in Safe mode with Networking and see if the error still persists.
- Search "MSCONFIG" and Open.
- Click on Boot Tab
- Tick Safe Boot in Boot Option
- Select Network.
- Click Apply and OK.
- Reboot your System.
