    Hyperlinks - change sheet but not cell reference for multiple hyperlinks at once

    Hello. Hoping someone might be able to help and potentially save me lots of time!

    I have a document that has 8 sheets, 4 with different data tables in them and 4 contents pages. I've set up hyperlinks on one contents sheet to take people to the relevant tables.

    The other three contents sheets need to include exactly the same cell references but the sheet number needs to be changed (the tables are the same size doing down the rows, but are different across the columns).

    I've tried selecting all the relevant cells and changing the hyperlinks together but this doesn't work. I've tried setting up a macro (unsuccessfully).

    Does anyone have any idea whether this can be done, other than editing each hyperlink individually to select a different sheet? That would take a VERY long time.

    Hope I've explained that clearly. Thanks in advance!

    Matt

    Can you show your unsuccessful macro and provide an example workbook?

    Attach a sample workbook (not a picture or pasted copy). Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.
    Surround your VBA code with CODE tags e.g.;
    [CODE]your VBA code here[/CODE]
    The # button in the forum editor will apply CODE tags around your selected text.

    Re: Hyperlinks - change sheet but not cell reference for multiple hyperlinks at once

    Thanks for getting back so quickly.

    I've uploaded an example spreadsheet. I'll try to explain...

    The sheet 'CB1 Index' has hyperlinks set up to the relevant tables on the 'CB1' sheet.

    I want to be able to update the hyperlinks on 'CB3 Index' to correspond with the 'CB3' sheet, but they have been copied from 'CB1 Index' so currently link back to the 'CB1' sheet.

    Is there a way to update the sheet reference, but keep the cell reference the same (as this will not change)? Obviously in this example it wouldn't take so long, but the document I'm working in has a much longer list and there are multiple sheets.

    Thanks in advance!

    Here's a solution that doesnt require a macro.

    Use the Hyperlinks formula to make your hyperlinks and have one cell on the sheet (cell B1 in this example) to define the destination sheet name.

    So on sheet CB1 Index, put the sheet name of the destination sheet CB1 in cell B1. Remove all the hyperlinks on the sheet and replace them with a formula like this...

    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Use that syntax for each hyperlink.

    Now when you copy sheet CB1 Index, all you have to do is change the destination sheet name in cell B1 and all the hyperlinks will change.

    Hi AlphaFrog,

    I've just given this a go and it's working. You're a genius. Thank you very much. I'll make sure I set it up like this again in the future.
