SUMMARY

In Microsoft Excel 98 Macintosh Edition, the shortcut key you use to insert a hyperlink is different from the shortcut key you use in the other programs that are included in Microsoft Office 98 Macintosh Edition. This article explains the differences and the reasons for the differences.

MORE INFORMATION

In Microsoft Office 97 for Windows, the shortcut key you use to insert a hyperlink is the same in all of the programs. The shortcut keys for each of the programs are listed in the following table.
   Program                   Shortcut Key
   --------------------------------------

   Microsoft Word 97         CTRL+k
   Microsoft PowerPoint 97   CTRL+k
   Microsoft Excel 97        CTRL+k
				
In Microsoft Office 98 Macintosh Edition, the shortcut key you use to insert a hyperlink is not the same in all of the programs. The shortcut keys for each of the programs are listed in the following table.
   Program                   Shortcut Key
   --------------------------------------

   Microsoft Word 98         COMMAND+k
   Microsoft PowerPoint 98   COMMAND+k
   Microsoft Excel 98        CONTROL+k
				
NOTE: You should save the file in which you are inserting the hyperlink before you insert it. This is true for all of the Office programs.

Why Microsoft Excel 98 Is Different

If you press COMMAND+K in Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh, version 5.0, the Delete dialog box is displayed. To remain compatible, Microsoft Excel 98 Macintosh Edition also uses COMMAND+K to display the Delete dialog box even though the other programs included in Microsoft Office 98 Macintosh Edition use COMMAND+K to insert hyperlinks.

If you want to insert a hyperlink in Microsoft Excel 98 Macintosh Edition, press CONTROL+K, or click Hyperlink on the Insert menu.
