    Link to Excel tab from word document

    Hello all,

    I`m trying to link to a specific tab on an excel sheert from my word document weithout a bit of success.

    It loads the tab but says Reference isn't valid when the tab loads...... is there anything wrong with my sheet tab name maybe or method of insertion?

    Can anyone advise please?

    This is what I am inserting in the word document:

    C:\Users\My Namei\OneDrive - Company Ltd\Spreadheet pay_Name - v4.xlsx#'Month Tab - Useful Information'
    Thanks,

    R.

    You didn't tell us HOW you are attempting to insert this, so we can't comment on the method.

    Can you answer the following:

    1. What method are you using?
    2. Does it work with the SAME workbook without the #'Month Tab - Useful Information' suffix?
    3. If yes to 2, what does it produce (attach a Word doc showing this - it's not really clear what you want).

    You've been a member for a long time now, yet you still open threads with scant information and must know that you are going to be prompted for more. Please try to get into the habit of providing more information up front. Thanks.

    I suggest you copy the source range in Excel, then paste it into Word using Paste Special with the Paste Link option and your preferred paste format. If you then press Alt-F9 in Word, you will see how such a link should look - which isn't the same as what you posted...

    That would result in something pointing to the Workbook, but not to any particular worksheet or cell(s). Valid links to Excel from Word require both a specific sheet and cell range.
