  2. On the Edit menu, click Copy.
  3. On the Edit menu, click Paste Special.
  4. In the Paste Special dialog box, click Values and then click OK.
  5. On the Insert menu, click Hyperlink.
  6. In the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, type the address for the hyperlink (for example, type and then click OK.
  7. Repeat the previous steps for each hyperlink that you want to convert.
  8. Resave your Excel file as an HTML file.
