I would like to add a link to text in an Excel spreadsheet. However, when I select the text and go to the Insert tab, the Link command (and every other command except Symbol) is unavailable. The right-click menu displays only Cut, Copy, Paste Options, Smart Lookup, Format Cells, and Pick from Drop-down List. Is there anything I can do to enable the linking functionality?

Never mind...I realized that you have to apply the link to the entire cell rather than selected text.
