    Hi all,

    I have to sheets in one file.
    so file.xls
    sheet1 and sheet2

    In sheet1 cell A1 I have a value, this value is "5"
    In sheet2 I have all kinds of numbers in column A, from 1 till 1000.

    The user should be able to click onto the value "5" in cell A1 and jump to the cell in sheet2 where the value is also "5".

    So there should be a hyperlink with I guess vlookup.
    I tried several things, but I can't get it to work.
    How could I do this? Some kind of formula or something for a hyperlink.
    I am willing to make it easier (I think) by giving the oportunity to make the link in cell B1, so in cell B1 should come a formula, that searches the value of cell A1 in a range in sheet2 (range: A (whole column A from sheet2))

    How do I make it work, that the user is redirected to the cell in sheet2 with the same value?

    Hopefully it's clear what my question is.

    In that case, here's what I found:

    =HYPERLINK("#INDEX(Sheet2!A:A,MATCH("&A1&",Sheet2!A:A,0))",A1)
