Cell Hyperlinks

New Contributor



I have a Excel document and I have linked some cells from the first tab, so it directs me to certain cells in the second tab. However, when I insert a new row on the linked cell, the link itself stays the same, now leading it to the wrong cell (as there is now a new row just been inserted above it). Is it possible so that the link changes whenever I insert a new row instead of keep changing them?


Thank you!

@s200z Use a hyperlink to a named range. Then the link will jump to where ever the cell with that name is located. No matter how many row you insert above, or columns to the left, of it.


I'd assign names to the target cells. When you select Insert > Link, then select Place in This Document, the defined names will be listed:


The target of the defined name will be adjusted automatically as you insert or delete rows, columns and cells.



@Hans Vogelaar @Riny_van_Eekelen Thank you. I done this, but when I add a new row, and then sort them in order, the links go out of sync. I added a new row and sorted A-Z, the links are one row out of sync.


You only mentioned inserting rows, not sorting the data. Sorting a range does not update the definition of range names. I don't know of a satisfactory solution.
