"Create csv table" with a hyperlink column

Hi,

I'm stuck at creating a csv file that has a hyperlink column.

 

I know that I have add the =HYPERLINK("url"), but when adding these double quotes my entire line gets surrounded by double quotes.

(1) My columns are now one column in Excel

(2) After text to columns still no hyperlink 😞

 

The closest I get is to add =HYPERLINK(url). After receiving the mail, the csv opens in Excel with the columns available. If the user adds the double quotes to surround the url in the cell and accepts the formula it works and we have a url the user can click on ...

 

Any ideas on how to solve this ? Somebody succeeded in doing this ?

 

Thank you,

Marc

Could you try to add a bit more clarity to your question.

You could certainly write a URL into a CSV. But a the hyperlink function is a Excel function and therefore cannot be contained within a CSV file. 

What you could do is create a CSV file with Power Automate and then use that as a datasource within an Excel document and create a hyperlink column, which would work fine.
