Hello, if you create a link for component , you can create a template document BOM and add link ,so you will have BOM with link address. did i get your question right ? alferd

Hi Alfred,
the component which I create have the link address in its parameters, and also my BOM template have link address, my problem is the link which is on BOM is not clickable, and I have to copy and paste it into my browser, but I want to click on the link in excel and it open browser automatically. if you could please have a look at my excel which I uploaded, you will found out what I mean.
thank you so much

Hi Dear Nareg
so sorry for late ,

I saw your document and made it correct. To fix this problem, you can re-link the link in the BOM document ØŒRe-update it through hyperlinking to the BOM document

thank you so much Alfred, but I want the altiume automatically do it,(or maybe should I change BOM Template reference) and I do not have to open created BOM excel and re-update it.

For example, in this picture, the manufacture part number which is from device parameters is not clickable, but the manufacture part number 1 which is from solution 1 is clickable, I want to create datasheet link like solution 1 which is clickable, (some of my components is not in standard distributor, so I have to add datasheet manually, and I want it to be clickable)

Is not the problem, that Altium puts this sign ' just before every value in the excel table?

Hi Dear Robert, yes exactly the problem is ' before the link when I manually delete ' before the URL it becomes clickable, is it possible to solve this problem so I do not have to open the document and remove ' manually?

I have seen some questions about removing the single quote, but I do not remember if I have seen solution. I have never needed to remove the single quote, so I can not really help But please, if you find a way how to remove ' from BOMs, let me know. Thank you.

Hi guys
Excuse me from being late
I am very busy. I have a solution for you. I hope to help you
Stages of work:
1- Open the new template document and open a new column next to the link column
2. In the new document cell, type the = check box and type the hyperlink word.
3. An opt-in pop-up will open, which you must select the first cell of the link column next to it.
4. In this case, press the enter button.
5. Select your own link column and select the hyperlink option with right click.
6. By selecting the column that wrote the formula, you can select the number of cells that you want to link to.
7. Keep the template document.
If you have a problem, ask.
