Hyperlink from one sheet to another in same spreadsheet
Posted on 2012-08-20
Need some help with some Excel VBA for an Excel 2007 spreadsheet.
Have a spreadsheet where I've got a worksheet named Suppliers (data is dynamic and is populated from an SQL Server database, and can have up to around 30,000 entries), so will have entries such as
1 SUPPLIER-1 001
2 SUPPLIER-2 002
3 SUPPLIER-3 003
The spreadsheet would also have another worksheet named SupplierDetails.
What I'd like to be able to do is this. The SupplierDetails worksheet would be initially hidden. The user should be able to click on any SupplierNo (so each SupplierNo should be a hyperlink), at which point the SupplierDetails worksheet should become visible.
Once SupplierDetails is visible, the user should then be taken to SupplierDetails worksheet. At that point, I will populate the SupplierDetails worksheet with various details from the SQL Server database, but I need to be able to pick up the the value of the SupplierNo which the user clicked back on the Suppliers worksheet.
I've got all the plumbing in place for populating the worksheets from the database, but just need to know specifically how to
a) Initially have the SupplierDetails worksheet hidden;
b) Have each SupplierNo on the Suppliers worksheet as a hyperlink
c) As the user clicks on the SupplierNo hyperlink, the SupplierDetails worksheet
should then become visible, and the user should be taken to cell A1 on
the SupplierDetails worksheet, with that cell containing the specific
SupplierNo which the user clicked back on the SupplierDetails worksheet.
d) I can then pick up this SupplierNo on the SupplierDetails worksheet and
pass that value down as a parameter to my database stored proc.
Would really appreciate some help in Excel VBA with points a-c ....
