Hi is it possible to have two identical sheets in one workbook, and whatever changes are made in the first sheet will automatically appear in the second sheet? Many thanks for any help.
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
Yup, you would have to link to the cell within the sheet. A use case for this would be having a table of contents with titles that autoupdate across a number of sheets.

I did this, but when my boss opened the worksheet on his iPad the links didn't work. I connected them to shapes that I made with either pictures or words on them. The shapes appeared, but the pictures and words didn't, also the hyperlinks didn't work.
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
I did these steps when adding the hyperlink to a simple shape. When i opened the excel book on an iPad none of the pictures or text on the shapes appeared, and the hyperlinks didn't work. Do you know what could cause this?
