Help with hyperlinks


D

Dave

Can you copy or link to a cell that has a hyperlink so the hyperlinks carries
through to your new cell or worksheet?

There are 50 sheets each with 30 hyperlinks. I want to be able to update one
worksheet and have the other sheets with the same hperlinks update
automatically as well. Is this possible?

For example: I have a hyper link in cell b4 in worksheet 1 which links to a
file.
How can I link that hyperlink to cell b4 in worksheet 2 so that when I update
the hyper link in worksheet 1 b4 it updates my link on in cell b4 in
worksheet 2. In worksheet 2 cell b4 I put ='worksheet 1'!b4 but this does not
carry the hyperlink through. How do you link the cells and maintain the
hyperlink.
Thanks for the input!

Just linking to a cell with a hyperlink doesn't carry it through to the cell
with the formula.

One way would be to use a hidden sheet with your hyperlink definitions (URL
and display text) and use the HYPERLINK() formula on the sheets with the
links.

Or if there's a fixed relationship between the link locations and you know
which sheets need updating you could do it with a VBA routine after updating
the first sheet (though your question seems to be looking for a formula
approach). Presumably this is more of a maintenance task than an end-user
one ?
