For an easy way to jump to a range of cells or another worksheet, use hyperlinks. This is ideal for referring to data you can view with one click . Here’s how to link cells and spreadsheets in Google Sheets.
If you have a large spreadsheet, you may want to link it to a cell group inside of her. This gives you a quick way to get past that group.
Go to the cell where you want to add the link. You can enter text to use as a link here or in the pop-up that will be presented. Otherwise, the group of cells will appear as text.
Click Insert> Insert Link on the menu.
When the window opens, click on “Sheets and Named Ranges” at the bottom.
Then scroll down one more time and click “Select a range of cells to link.”
In either of the two steps above, you can add the text you want to link to in the box labeled Text at the top of the window. This is useful if you didn’t enter it in the cell before starting the linking process.
When the Select a data range window appears, enter the range of cells or drag through the range on your sheet to complete the box. Click OK. »
Then you will see your hyperlink in the cell. Select the cell and then click the link that appears in the small pop-up window. It will go straight to the data range you chose.
If you have defined a name for a group of cells , you can also link it. The process is similar to linking to unnamed cells as described above.
Select the cell where you want to add the link, and click Insert> Insert Link from the menu. When the window opens, click on “Sheets and Named Ranges”.
In the next pop-up window, scroll down to the Name Ranges section and choose the one you want. You can also add the cell text here if needed.
Then you will see your hyperlink and when you select the cell, you can click the link in the little pop-up window to go to the named cell range.
A more convenient way to hyperlink in Google Sheets is to link to another sheet. This process is even easier than the previous processes for cell ranges.
Select the cell where you want to add the link, and click Insert> Insert Link from the menu. If you see the sheet you want when the window appears, select it. Otherwise, click on “Named Ranges and Spreadsheets.”
Then you will see a list of the worksheets in the workbook under Sheets. Just choose the one you want. Again, you can add text on top if you want.
Then you will see the hyperlink and you can click the link in the little pop-up window to go to the sheet.
After adding a hyperlink, either to a cell range or sheet, you can copy, edit, or remove the link . Select the cell that contains the link and choose the action to the right of the small pop-up window.
