Hyperlink to Charts

Posted by Clive on February 13, 2002 7:40 AM

I have a workbook containing lots of sheets, some of which are charts. I would like to be able to set hyperlinks from some of the non charts sheets to specific charts. However when you add a hyperlink you cannot point to one of the chart sheets !. Anyone out there know how you can do it ???

Hi CLive,

just name the range that sits behind the chart, or if you have a few, name each in turn

(ie chartrange1, chartrange2)

then insert your hyperlinks as normal, choosing the option to go to a "named location in file" and type in the required name range...

I just tested this - popped a simple chart in sheet 1 row 100 and named the range it sat on as "trythis"

then inserted a hyperlink on sheet 2 that pointed to a range named "trythis" and it worked, it jumped straight to the chart on sheet 1, way down the page.

Hope this helps
