Hi there,
I am desperately looking for help, oh god, please some help. I literally want to pull my own teeth and hair out right about now!
=HYPERLINK("[C:\Users\DT168\Desktop\20161122.xlsx]overtime!B4","CLICK HERE")

I am using this formula to hyperlink to another cell in another work book, what I would really like to do is make it so that i can then drag the original cell down to auto fill in correlation with the target cell. Ie. when I drag the cell down in the workbook I am using the HYPERLINK formula in the 'B4' in the above formula would change to 'B5', 'B6', 'B7' and so on. At the moment it will just copy the formula down leaving 'B4' in.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD COULD SOMEONE HELP? I have found numerous mindboggling formula that look like it should work such as:
=HYPERLINK("#"&CELL("address",INDIRECT("Sheet1!D"&ROW())), D1) BUT I CAN'T MAKE IT WORK!
PLEASE HELP!

i need exactly the same..
strangely in google tabels it does it-....because it defines the range:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-KvvXxFzSxEyODMqTVPt4gsVC5g4K0Q_/edit#gid=2043746334&range=A8
so you can drag it down and i goes up A9, A10 etc

Hi, GRANT, you can try this formula =HYPERLINK("[C:\Users\AddinsVM001\Desktop\aa.xlsx]Sheet3!A"&ROW(),"CLICK HERE")
in the formula:
C:\Users\AddinsVM001\Desktop\aa.xlsx]Sheet3! is the file path and the worksheet name
A is the column that you want to refer to, supposing, you want to click the cell to refer to the B1 in another workbook, change A to B
ROW() indicates the current row of formula cell locate. If the cell that you want to refer to is at the same row with the formula row, use ROW(), if the reference cell are above the formula cell, minus the number of row difference, if it is below the formula cell, plus the difference.
Take an instance, in cell B7, I want to refer to cell B1 in another workbook's sheet3, the formula is
=HYPERLINK("[C:\Users\AddinsVM001\Desktop\aa.xlsx]Sheet3!B"&ROW()-6,"CLICK HERE")
press Enter key, and drag auto fill handle down, it will auto refer to B2, B3, B4
Hope this can help you.
