    how to open a linked file in Excel

    hi

    hopefully a really easy question.

    if i have a linked external file in Excel - is there a shortcut to open this file (without going to the network path to find it)?

    Is it linked through a cell?

    If so, simply highlight the cell and press Ctrl + [ , or from the menu bar go to Formula > Trace Precedents
