I have a list of values in column A of Sheet1, as the user creates worksheets corresponding to values in Sheet1 I want to create hyperlinks on Sheet1 to the new worksheets.

E.G.

Sheet1 Cell A2 contains a value "001", the user creates a worksheet call "Test-001", is it possible to create a dynamic hyperlink link to cell A1 in the new worksheet?
 
Dynamic so that the formula can be copied down for other cell vaqlues.

Is there a way to write this such that it doesn;t reference the file location ?

Sure as long as it's in the same location as the current.
I also realized I  left off the file extension.  Of course, you may need to modify that to your exact preference.

=HYPERLINK("test-" & A2 &".xlsx","TEST-" & A2)

Sorry to be a pain, can one do this without including the filename in the formula?
