To build links to multiple sheets in a workbook, you can use the HYPERLINK function. In the example shown, the formula in D5, copied down, is:


This formula generates a working hyperlink to cell A1 in each of the 9 worksheets as shown.

Generic formula



This formula relies on concatenation to assemble a valid location for the HYPERLINK function.

In cell D5, the link location argument is created like this:

"#"&B5&"!"&C5 // returns ""#Sheet1!A1""

which returns the string "#Sheet1!A1". The formula then resolves to:


Which returns a valid link.

The cell value in column C is entirely arbitrary and can be any cell you like. It could also be hardcoded into the formula as a string like this:


Note: The hash character (#) at the start of the sheet name is required. For more link syntax examples, see HYPERLINK.
