Multiple Hyperlinks in Excel

I have a row of cells (D3 thru D17) on sheet WORK and I need to hyperlink each cell to a corresponding cell on sheet CAT (B3 thru B17). I tried dragging with ctrl, shift, alt but that just copies the first cell hyperlink (B3) to all the other cells and I have to edit each one individually. Any way to do this? I have to do this to about 15 workbooks multiple times so need a way to speed it up.

Thanks in advance.

You can use the HYPERLINK formula, re:

Put this in D3 of Work:

[D3]=HYPERLINK("#CAT!B3","Go to CAT B3 Via Hyperlink Formula")

So, to enable dragging down, you can use this with a helper column, e.g., in D3, let's put #CAT!B3.

Now, that can be copied down.

In E3, we can put:

[E3]=HYPERLINK(D3,"Go to CAT, Address: " & D3)

And copy that down.  Now you have your hyperlinks, though you may want to put your helper column on another column off the sheet, perhaps.

See attached demonstration.

Thanks for the answer and this almost does it I think except on worksheet WORK in Cell D3, I wanted it to say "Details" with a hyperlink that takes you to worksheet CAT cell B3 ...

Each cell would say "Details" but the hyperlink for D3 takes you to other sheet Cell B3, D4 to B4, D5 to B5 ...etc.

Is there a way to do this?
Yes, there's a friendly name you can include in the Hyperlink formula:

[E3]=HYPERLINK(D3,"Details: " & D3)

or just:

Thanks again. I took what was in column D, copied it off-screen and hid it, then put what was in Column E into D and those links take you to worksheet CAT to the corresponding Cells.

I really appreciate your time Sir,
