This is great, thanks. How about if the dates are column headings (e.g. all in row 2:2)?

Hi Chris Weekes,

To create a hyperlink to jump to today's date if all the dates are in a row (for example row 2). Try the following formula.
=HYPERLINK("#"&ADDRESS(2,MATCH(TODAY(),2:2)),"Go to Today")

Добрый день,
Если список дат находится не в столбце, а в строке, то тогда как будет выглядеть « #A » который означает, что ячейки даты находятся в столбце A.И вообще, как бы в этом случае выглядела формула.Спасибо заранее.
С Уважением
