Hyperlink Within Workbook Without Changing Name Of Link

May 27, 2014

I have an overview worksheet that features a list of dates; I want to hyperlink the dates to the another worksheet within the workbook that represents the month. I want to do this without changing the dates in the overview sheet. For example, I have 2014-05-23, 2014-05-24,2014-05-25 in my overview sheet and I have a worksheet titled May 2014. When I try to hyperlink the dates to the May worksheet it turns the dates to #### in the overview sheet. How can I stop that from happening?

Extract Hyperlink Formula Link Address

Nov 17, 2006

Not sure if anybody has been succesful or not in the following but I am writing a macro to check that each hyperlink in my report is operational. My situation is as follows:

Cell A1 has the following hyperlink formula: =hyperlink(Worksheet1!B1,Worksheet1!B2)

I am attempting a workaround to capture the cell reference (B1) where the path and filename is stored and directing the macro to open the link. But when I try to send the hyperlink formula (Cell A1) to a string variable in vba, the result is the contents of Worksheet1!B2 instead of the entire formula.

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation To Hyperlink Won't Follow Link

Aug 22, 2013

I have a worksheet with several data validation dropdowns that each link to a series of hyperlinks. When you click the dropdown and select the hyperlink, it opens up that particular file. All of these work, except for one of the dropdowns. Even though I can see and select the names, the link is NOT activated.

Is there some obscure excel feature that I am not aware of that is preventing this one from working? Why would this be?

Excel 2007.

Hyperlink Error: "Unable To Open [link]. The Internet Site Reports That The Item You Requested Could Not Be Found. (HTTP/1.0 404)"

I have a macro that works across 2 workbooks. In the middle of the macro, a message box pops up "This workbook contains links to other data sources" and I need to select yes or no.

Changing Workbook Formulas To Reference New Workbook Name

Aug 6, 2012

I have a workbook "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" and another workbook "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master" The "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master" workbook has all the formulas that pull data from the "Weekly Field Reports-Master Copy" workbook and populates a financial report of that week's field unit production.

When I save the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report Job #1" and then save the "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" is there a way to automatically change the formulas in the "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" workbook to now pull data from the "Weekly Field Report Job #1" workbook instead of the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook???

Currently I am manually changing the formulas in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" to reference the data in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report Job #1". Otherwise the formulas pull the data from the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy".

Cannot Find Link To External Workbook

Jul 31, 2014

I have a document (unfortunately I cannot attach it) in Excel 365 that each time I open it I get the usual prompt that it is calling an external link. As much as i'd love to hide the popup I need to find the link to solve to problem but I'm at a loss.

Simply breaking the links doesn't work for some reason, so I've tried updating the source to reflect the current file. No luck there.

I've searched the workbook for the name of the link in question, searching for all formula for name itself as well as variants of "[" and ".xlms".

I don't see anything in the name manager referencing that external file.

I don't recall if I copied from that particular document, I may have as it was a duplicate file. I tried looking over the cells I believe I copied from it but didn't see the reference.

I've installed Kutools and Bill Manville (MS MVP) FindLink Tool. Both of which says there is no external link.

I've looked at the compatibility checker which basically just says, yes there is an external link but give no insight on how to address.

I've tried a couple of macros, some of which crashed excel, some of which simply said that there was an external link but not how to find it. In my frustration I forgot which one that was but I'm about to try that approach again and look for that code.

Link To Password Protected Workbook

Jan 24, 2012

I have a master for each manager that pulls a few values from each of their employees personal sheets.

The personal sheets (about 30) are individually password protected so only the owners can open them.

This is creating a security issues as the links in the master require the passwords for each of the "source" workbooks.

Is there any way to add some code so that the passwords do not need to be entered each time?

Hyperlink To Cells On Another Worksheet In Same Workbook

Jun 19, 2013

I've been trying to create a hyperlink to another worksheet in the same workbook using cell("filename") to extract the filepath because the filename could change or the file could be moved. I use

=LEFT(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("[",CELL("filename",A1),1)-1)&MID(CELL("filename"),SEARCH("[",CELL("filename"))+1, SEARCH("]",CELL("filename"))-SEARCH("[",CELL("filename"))-1)

to extract the file path, and then try to throw it into the hyperlink formula like:

=HYPERLINK("[&G1&]'Sheet2'!A2","Go to link")

where G1 is the cell where the filepath is stored.

I'm not sure if my syntax or something is wrong but it's not working out.

I am also looking to use vlookup or somethign in the hyperlink formula to match the cells in column A of sheet1 to column B of sheet2 so I can hyperlink it to the same number on sheet2. Right now in the example below it is all linked to go to A2 on sheet2, and dragging the formula down doesnt change it to A3,A4 etc.

HYPERLINK Function To A Second Worksheet In One Workbook

Dec 11, 2008

I'm having a problem with the HYPERLINK function. I am trying to make jumps from an index sheet to the large worksheet with all the actual info in it. The name of the file is SKU and the large info sheet is also called SKU. First I took the SKU sheet and numbered the rows (="A"&CELL("row",A1)), then in the index worksheet I created a VLOOKUP that finds the corresponding chapter title and returns that value.

Worksheet 1

2 100 =VLOOKUP(A2,SKU!$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE) ="[SKU]SKU!"&VLOOKUP(A2,SKU!$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE)
3 150 =VLOOKUP(A3,SKU!$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE) ="[SKU]SKU!"&VLOOKUP(A3,SKU!$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE)

I used the HYPERLINK formula in column D: "=HYPERLINK(C2,A2)" and it returns something that looks like the right thing but the link won't open.

Link Formula To Unopened Excel Workbook

Oct 14, 2012

Im looking to insert a formula in vba code that inserts the formula from a closed workbook to the active cell. At the moment i have this as an example of what i need:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "='[SRS 5FFBEP.xlsm]7%'!RC"

However the file part in square brackets [SRS 5FFBEP.xlsm] and tab 7% i would like to replace with a link to a cell reference that contains the file path as this needs to change and update so i would end up something like this:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=('" & Workbooks(Worksheets("SRS Files").Range("d29")).Worksheets("SRS Import").Range("c10") & "'!RC)

Note that cell Worksheets("SRS Files").Range("d29") contains the full file path (in text format) and Worksheets("SRS Import").Range("c10") is the link to the tab that reads the 7% (in text format).

As it stands the first set of code works fine however i need it to be able to change as previously stated. So what i need is to replace the file name and tab with cell references

Link To External Workbook From Cell Reference

Nov 24, 2011

I've got a field where I enter the current month, from this I derive a file path which is stored in A4.

ie: A1 = '01/11/2011' (UK Date format)

A4 = '\myserverdirectory20111111MyFile.xls'

What I'm trying to achieve is to then have a link in cell A6 that will link to the file in A4. I can specify my cell reference as this will never change, just the file path.

So, if I changed A1 to '01/12/2011' my A4 changes to '\myserverdirectory20111211MyFile.xls'

I'm trying to set A6 to something like ="&$A$A4&"!B1 to get the value of B1 on my referenced sheet.

Excel Workbook - Finding Hidden Link

Jan 9, 2014

I have an excel workbook that a colleague of mine is working with. each time she opens it, she gets a message telling her that a .xls file could not be found, and a web-address specifying the file path. We went through the workbook together and looked at all of the formulas and i cannot find anywhere that this address is referenced. I also looked for any code, but there was nothing showing on any of the worksheets in the entire workbook. I broke all the links to other workbooks, used find and replace to search for the path, and to search for all the formulas. I also copied the tabs to a new workbook, but to no avail.
