Hi all,

Not sure if there is a solution to this:

I have 2000+ shapes in Sheet 1 that needs to be hyperlinked to bring users to a specific set of rows in Sheet 2. In Sheet 2, the first set starts from Row 14. Each set consists of 29 rows and are each spaced 15 rows apart.

In Sheet 1, the buttons are placed in the following sequence:
Row 1: Set A, B, C
Row 2: Set D, E, F

I'm wondering if there is a way for me to avoid having to put in all 2000+ hyperlinks manually, by using something similar to OFFSET function, where I can drag and copy the buttons down the rows...

Open to VBA solutions as well!

Thank you!

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

After additional thoughts, perhaps replacing the shapes with a hyperlink formula (with an OFFSET formula) into column F, I, and L would work better.

However, it seems like the hyperlink formula would need a defined name (hence, 2000+ ranges to define), which defeats the purpose of trying to find an easier solution. Excel Hyperlinks and Hyperlink Function

Would be great if there are other solutions/ideas for this.
