During hover the link, the text which appears is in fact the <strong>Screen Tip</strong> which can be any text of user's choice.</p> <p>Other is <strong>Text to Display</strong>, this replaces the Web Address and appears on the Sheet.</p> <p><strong>Other Advantage is</strong>, the Hyperlink can be modified in terms of Font, Size &amp; Colour while select the Hyperlink and Right Click and hit Format Cell (Ver. 2010 or higher) or in older Versions Modify command can do all these.</p> <p><strong>But when you use the built-in Hyperlink function</strong>, you can't add the Screen Tip. Here Formatting Hyperlink is available but user can't enjoy the Edit Hyperlink command sequence.</p>
