Let's say in cell A1, you've input the term "LinkABC", which contains a hyperlink to somewhere else in the workbook. You want to set cell B1 equal to A1. If you enter =A1 into the formula bar in cell B1, it will copy the text only, without the hyperlink.

Any simple solution? (I know you can just copy/paste, but that won't work for my purposes -- I'm looking for what'd you'd enter into the formula bar in cell B1)

Unfortunately, I get an error that says, "The address of this site is not found".

Also, if I create a hyperlink in B1 to A1, when I click it, it directs me to A1, but not the destination of A1, which is what I need.
