Dreamweaver- Changing multiple text to active links
Creating multiple links automatically from excel

Is there a way to copy an entire column from excel into dreamweaver (that contains web links) and have Dreamweaver automatically make them "active" links?

When I copy and paste the excel data, the link appears in Dreamweaver as (www.mydomain.com/files/filename.doc) which is fine but there is not an active link created. Only the text of the link is created.

I know I can adjust each link individually and add the hyperlinks that way. However, I am wondering if there is a way to copy and paste this information from excel where the active hyperlink is associated with the text of the link. Currently the text only shows up but nothing is clickable. Saving the Excel as htm doesnt solve the problem. The links are not active in excel. Any advice would be appreciated!

Why not just add the appropriate missing HTML to the columns abutting the link?
