    Um dos poucos locais onde encontrei essa solução. Muito obrigado! Estou quase lá. Não estou usando uma célula para o hiperlink, mas uma imagem que inseri na planilha e indicando uma célula qualquer como referência. Fiz como indicado, mas não funciona (Só para verificação, fiz com uma célula e deu certo). Há alguma modificação a ser feita na macro?

    This is very handy, thank you, however this only works if you are in the cell $B$8. I want to create the same hyperlink, which performs the same macro function, but in every row down the sheet.
    ie. I have two tabs, sheet 1 and sheet 2. The user is in Sheet 1, and a macro is run which enters data in sheet 1 and sheet 2 on a row-by-row basis. This works fine, but then i want a macro so that the user can click a link in the next cell and it takes them back to their original row in sheet 1, offset a few cells. I can do this using the above, BUT only if the user is in a set row in sheet 2 (eg $B$8). How can i make it so the macro works when they are in sheet 2 B9, B10, B11....?

      This will assign sheet1 column J, row 2 to 35 with a hyperlink to it's own cell with the text name

      Sub whateverName()
      For i = 2 To 35 Step 1
      ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "name"
      Range("J" & i).Select
      ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="", SubAddress:= _
      "'sheet1'!J" & i, TextToDisplay:="name"

      End Sub
