I am trying to create a csv file to import into a website I am building, I need the csv to include a cell which includes a hyperlinked word in html format.

 

I have a column which contains urls and I need to create another column which includes the html. So cell A2 contains https://example.com. I want cell A3 to contain <a href="https://example.com">Preview</a>

 

I am a bit lost, any help is appreciated

Hi there

 

I have attached something similar to what you have asked (assuming I understand you right).

 

CSV files don't do hyperlinks as it's text based, so all cells are whatever you make them.

 

See if this is helpful?

 

Cheers

Damien

 

Thanks for your response, I think you've understand what I'm trying to achieve.

 

So if I have cells like A3 on your example and save them as a csv they would be saved as text?

 

The other part that I'm still struggling with and I'm not sure I've explained is how I create your A3 from A2, I've tried <a href="$A2">Preview</a> and various derivatives, but without success

Hi there

 

I've made this Excel file for you that will take the URL and your description and turn it into <a href>.

 

You can populate the spreadsheet to produce your desired tags, then save the file as CSV which will convert your entries to text.

 

Let me know how it goes? 

 

Cheers

Damien

worked great, thanks

@Damien Rosario 

 

Many thanks. Has helped me as well

@Damien Rosario Hello, I need your help. I created a product CSV file and I would like the csv file directory to be opened with World Wide Web like loading a website URL and leads to the CSV file. 

 

Links are majorly accepted for products upload.

 

Could you please help me?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Taofeek 

 

Not sure I follow what you are wanting so let me try to understand.

 

1. You have a product CSV file.

2. You want the folder that has the CSV file to open in the web browser.

3. Presumably there's only the CSV file in the folder so users can click onto it to open the CSV.

 

If this is true, I'm curious to know:

a. Where is the CSV currently stored?

b. Why not just link directly to the CSV instead of the folder view?

 

Cheers

Damien
