how i do the link, but only with the cells that i want and not my entire worksheet? I use the code from Rorya in my past question and works perfect!


This is my past Question:
Hi, i want to know how to create a link between worksheets in the same workbook.

Example: i enter 25 in the sheet1 A1, this automatically appears in sheet2 A1 and if i enter 35 in sheet2 A1 then the value in sheet1 A1 change to 35, any idea?

This cannot be done with a formula

Then you want something like:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngCell as range
if not intersect(target, range("A1,D2")) is nothing then
   On Error Resume Next
   Application.EnableEvents = False
   for each rngCell in intersect(target, range("A1,D2"))
   Sheets("Sheet2").Range(rngcell.Address).Value = rngcell.Value
   next rngcell
   Application.EnableEvents = True
end if
End Sub

Open in new window

to acieve the results as in the example, take these steps :

1) goto the cell A1 in sheet2
2) enter the following contents :

=sheet1!A1

3) press enter

done

If you want to do this for 10 by 10 cells, you can either

    perform this manually cell by cell on sheet2,

    or select the A1 cell on sheet2, hover the mouse cursor above the black dot on the lower right corner of the cell (mouse cursos should now be a 'plus' sign)
    drag the mouse cursor to a range holding all the cells where you want this functionality.
    Note that when you drag the mouse to the right, eg. to cell B1, this cell also links to cell B1 in sheet1 !

Yes, as long as the total cell address is under 255 characters. If it's more than that then you would need to build up the range using Union (or rethink what you are doing! ;))
