Hyperlink Sheets

"My workbook has a lot of sheets.  I need to create a quick INDEX sheet at the beginning
of my workbook to serve as a Table of Contents. Hyperlinks from the index to the sheets
would be a plus."

  1. All sheets are listed in the new index sheet by name
  2. Hyperlink is added to make navigation to sheets simple
  3. Hyperlinks work even with spaces in sheet names
  4. Demonstrates how to also grab some some key data from each sheet to make list more informative
  5. Hyperlink is also placed on each original sheet in cell A1 to link back to the new index, making a complete fast-navigation system

To create a hyperlinked list of all the worksheets in a workbook on the current active sheet in column A:
Sample File:     CreateHyperlinkedSheetList.xls

Next ws
