Hyperlink icon or Hyperlink formula


Board Regular
Oct 7, 2018

I am creating a summary sheet book with hyperlink icon or hyperlink formula to the another workbook “datasheet“ however i found the below issues.

1. For the right click and create hyperlink, it is easy to do but when I save as the summary sheet workbook and the another workbook "datasheet" into different names (Different month workbook for record purposes) The hyperlink will still point to the original worksheet "database" NOT the new one i saved as. E.g i had hyperlink to the Sep2019 workbook “datasheet“ and when i have all workboooks open and save as the Oct2019 workbook "datasheet" but all the hyperlink still points to Sep2019 workbook "datasheet" not Oct 2019 workbook "datasheet"

2. Then i used the formular

=HYPERLINK(CONCATENATE("#",CELL("address",'\\C Drive[xxxFile]!$A$10)),\\C Drive[xxxFile]!$A$10) or =HYPERLINK(CONCATENATE("#",CELL("address",'\\C Drive[xxxFile]!$A$10)),"Product name")

everything looks good and the save as function works when i create different month file but the only issue when the workbook "datasheet" file closed or unopen the cells with hyperlink formular will appear #N/A until the workbook "datasheet" opens.

Is there any better way to do this or anything I can improve? thanks a lot.
