How do I make a column (content) a hyperlink with an external list in SharePoint 2013? I have the url in the database and need to turn it into a hyperlink.

In SP2013 you can use CSR - Client Side Rendering to change the display and add HTML around the url.

You could try adding a Calculated Column with Formula:

   ="<a href='" & url & "'>" & Title & "</a>"

and set the datatype to Number

This will output as HTML... But only on ListViews! Then again it works in 2010 as well.
