Hello! I will make this as short as possible, I promise! I'm trying to hyperlink a list of numbers from one worksheet to another without having to do it manually.

For example, this table is in worksheet # 1.

18-01John
18-02Adam
18-03Dave

<tbody>
</tbody>

A similar table is in worksheet # 2. It has the same numbers (18-01, 18-02, etc.) but a completely different data set.

JanFebMar
18-0110510
18-021055

<tbody>
</tbody>

Is there a way to hyperlink these numbers

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

G'day gruhnelliot,

Your questions lacks some details,

Hyperlink to or from what?
Which numbers? the 18- numbers or the 10's & 5's

It may be better to explain what you are trying to achieve.

Cheers

Re: Need Help With Hyperlinking 2 Lists

Upon reflection, is what you are trying to achieve a combination of the two datasets that would, for example, have the name from ws1 appear between the 18- and the data from ws2

as in
A B C D E
Jan Feb Mar
18-01 John 10 5 10


If that is the case the question is where you want to do this? in ws1 , ws2 or another worksheet or workbook?

The easiest method that I am aware of would be a new column in ws2 where you want the name to appear (B above) and in that column simply put "=ws1 cell reference", and copy down. (I.e if John was in ws1 A2, then you can either type = and click in the source cell in ws1 OR type =worksheet 1 name<ws1><worksheetname>!A2

If you want it on a new worksheet or workbook then you have to link back to both sets of data, but is it very easily done with an "=" and a right mouse click in the cell from either ws1 or ws2 you want to copy into the new location.</worksheetname></ws1>

In worksheet # 1, I have a table where a group of people are assigned a file number, for example: John is assigned 18-01, Dave is assigned 18-02, and so on...

This is an example of the table in WS#1
18-01John
18-02Dave
18-03Chris

<!--StartFragment--> <colgroup><col width="65" span="2" style="width:65pt"> </colgroup><tbody>
<!--EndFragment--></tbody>

In worksheet # 2, those same file numbers are in a table which show how much money each person has spent this year.

This is an example of the table in WS#2.
File #JANFEBMAR
18-01
20$10$200$
18-0210$50$2000$
18-030$0$0$

<tbody>
</tbody>


Is there a way to hyperlink each corresponding number (18-01, 18-02, and so on) from WS#1 to WS#2, and from WS#2 back to WS#1?

So, if I was in WS#1, my goal is to click "18-01" and it hyperlink me to "18-01" in WS#2. Does this make sense?

The list has hundreds of file numbers so manually doing it for each one isn't realistic.

<colgroup><col span="4"></colgroup><tbody>
