I'm using Microsoft Excel 2011. One of my workbooks contains a tab. I want that tab to open when I click a link. The link should be in a cell in the same workbook. How can I create such a link?

I don't have a Mac on which to test this but I believe the instructions here are what you need:

  1. Right click on the cell where the hyperlink should go and select Hyperlink from the popup menu.

  2. Click on the Documents tab then the Locate button.

    enter image description here

  3. Enter the cell reference that the hyperlink should point to. Adjust the sheet name appropriately.

    enter image description here

    You should now see something like the following:

    enter image description here

  4. Enter the hyperlink text in the Display field.

    enter image description here

    You'll end up with something like this:

Example: =Sheet1!A1
This would link whatever cell you type this in to cell A1 on Sheet1, assuming your workbook has a Sheet1.

Is it possible to have text in the cell + the link? – nick_name Aug 30 '11 at 20:51
Actually, this is not what I'm looking for. I want the tab to open when I click the link. – nick_name Aug 30 '11 at 20:55
