Help on Conditional Format

P: 8
Hi,
In my database, one data's type is hyperlink but we could also enter text without hyperlink to anywhere else. Hence how could I set the cell's format conditioning on whether it is a real hyperlink or just plain text? In another words, if there is hyperlink in the cell, the color of of the letter would be blue, otherwise it would be black. I searched this website for my problem, but couldn't find the corresponding solution to it. Do you have some suggestions? Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

If a field data type is hyperlink then all values should be valid hyperlink. Set up another field to handle non hyperlink values.

Hi, Mary,

Thank you very much for your reply. A further question: is it possible to set up one field which could either input text or insert hyperlink? Thank you very much for your opinion.

No as I said the data type sets the type of value that can be put in a field. It is either hyperlink or text.
