Folks,
I've noticed on Microsoft's web site numerous uses of a hyperlink to display additional information about a topic without leaving the site.
I would like to incorpoarte the same concept in a worksheet. Since I will have more than one issue I'm going to break this project into several follow-up questions.
First objective:
In the attached worksheet you will see various topics listed from A2:A5. These are my hypelinked cells. On the right side of the worksheet from cells J2:O14 is an example of the data I would like to show when the user selects, for example, the first topic in cell A2 that would appear directly underneath the hyperlink.

I'm not sure how to use hyperlink, but you can try groupping and double click event.
Try this sample (macro should be enabled).
With double clich on row you can expand content.
Some details about groups you can find here:'
