Hello I have a little problem.
For example in sheet1 on C13 i have formula like 5.81*0.97 and in the sheet2 in C13 i have formula 888*0.97..
What i need to do to like link them, like if i change that (0.97 to 0.85) in sheet1 in C13 it will automatic change in sheet2 in C13 from 0.97 to 0.85 as well.
???

both need to refer to a static cell in order to do that, which mean you need to put the value of 0.85 to another cell, let both C13 in Sheet1 and Sheet2 refer to it.

You can do this using a macro. Do you want to go in that direction?

Try this macro in the Workbook Module
``````Option Explicit
Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count = 1 Then
If ActiveCell.Worksheet.Name = Target.Worksheet.Name Then
If Sh.Name = "Sheet1" Or Sh.Name = "Sheet2" Then
If Sh.Name = "Sheet1" Then
Sheets("Sheet2").Range("C13").Formula = Left(Sheets("Sheet2").Range("C13").Formula, InStr(Sheets("Sheet2").Range("C13").Formula, "*")) & Right(Target.Formula, Len(Target.Formula) - InStr(Target.Formula, "*"))
ElseIf Sh.Name = "Sheet2" Then
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("C13").Formula = Left(Sheets("Sheet1").Range("C13").Formula, InStr(Sheets("Sheet1").Range("C13").Formula, "*")) & Right(Target.Formula, Len(Target.Formula) - InStr(Target.Formula, "*"))
End If
End If
End If
End If
End If
End Sub

Change the macro to
``````Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count = 1 Then
If ActiveCell.Worksheet.Name = Target.Worksheet.Name Then
If Sh.Name = "Sheet1" Or Sh.Name = "Sheet2" Then
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C13:I13")) Is Nothing Then
If Sh.Name = "Sheet1" Then
ElseIf Sh.Name = "Sheet2" Then
End If
End If
End If
End If
End If
End Sub
``````

What would the Macro be if I could change the (0.97) in C13 and it would automatic change from C13 to I13 in sheet1 and sheet2?
