    Here is what i'm trying to do.

    I'm making a rolodex online using google spreadsheet.

    I embedded the spreadsheet on google sites as a list.

    I want to be able to make a phone number click-able.

    I have played with both ends of the phone and the google application.

    However the only thing that works in my android phone is this code in the browser
    wtai://wp/mc;XXXXXXXXX where X=a digit from a 10 number phone number.

    The code will open up the dialer and enter the number XXXXXX perfectly! However I'm having trouble loading that code from a google document as a link to the address bar.

    I know hyperlinks work in the google document because I can add a hyper link as so:

    =HYPERLINK("google.com","Google")

    or to open up my mail client and address it to someone

    =HYPERLINK("mailto:XXX@gmail.com","Send an Email)


    Technically to make a phone number put in cell A1, the code would be

    =HYPERLINK("wtai://wp/mc;&$A1&", "Click to Call")

    but its not working!!!

    I have no idea, but make sure you don't need to escape any of the characters you're using.

    I figured it out.

    IN the spreadsheet, I entered a hyperlink that connected to a website i created in weebly.com

    the website (for example) was

    =HYPERLINK("www.weebly.com/?wtai://wp/mc;" &$A1&"", "Call number")

    Well A1 was the phone number in which would be transfered to my weebly website.In this case, the phone number i will attempt to dial is 888-8888


    So now that we have made the hyperlink, at weebly.com, i inserted a script that would take the address after the "?" and redirect me to it.

    Thus redirecting me to wtai://wp/mc;"8888888"

    When when i access my spreadsheet on google docs on my android,

    I click on the hyperlink that says "Call number", it will take me to my custom webpage that WILL load 888-8888 to my dialar, and all i have to do is press the call button.
