    Default Hyperlink function from drop down menu data validation list throughout entire workbook

    Hello need a little help

    "YouTube": Hyperlink function from drop down menu data validation list throughout entire workbook
    "YouTube": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vRkA_7x9t8&t=50s


    The validation link hyperlink listed above works great but it links to other sheets and I need it to link on the same sheet.
    The list links will link to the sheet name and cell location. I have video and music in a data file list and would like to link down to a group title. As I add more selection and groups this type of hyperlink list help keep the links up to date and working with out having to redo link if the rows change.

    Example items in validation list: 1000, 2000,3000,4000,5000,6000. Now if I want to add another item to the list, like 3500 then all I have to do is add or insert the 3500 into the list without having to do much work.

    =HYPERLINK("workbook_name.xls]validation_sheet_name!"&AG6,"friendly_name") is the code use in the video and works great.

    hope i didn't mess this up too much, but watch the youtube video and make the validation list link on the same sheet the validation list is located not a different sheet.

    What I like about this way it doesn't use vba.

    Thanks qmp

    Can you post some sample data from your sheet?

    Just to clarify you only want to hyperlink within Sheet1 for example for your data?
