Activating Links in Excel 2007?

Hi does anyone know how to make "dormant" links active on a spreadsheet?

So if I have www links how to I make them clickable?

I should add that I am referring to making several hundred links clickable! Not just one or two which I have worked out -

Thanks!!

Normal, when you add the hyperlink its clickable straight away. What menu option are you using to insert the links?

I normally right-click on a cell, select Hyperlink, and then get the panel shown.
