Linking a web page to a specific excel tab

  • 0


I’ve researched but had no luck finding an answer.

I’m trying to create a link on a web page to an excel file that targets a specific tab. Below are examples that I have read via my research, which proved to be unsuccessful.

<a href="excelfilename.xls#tabname">

<a href="excelfilename.xls#tabname!A1">

I even tried bookmarking the specific cell with in each tab or defining the name…. but its a no go.

The links work great if I’m linking with in the excel file but its not what I want.

Is there anyway to identify a tab so when I click a hyperlink from a webpage and it opens an excel file, it will target a specific tab?
