View Full Version : Solved: Macro to Add Link to Each Worksheet?

06-11-2009, 12:57 PM

I'm using the following Macro from a file that someone who no longer works at my firm used in his spreadsheets. Basically, it creates a Table of Contents for the all the worksheets in the file.

I want to modify the Macro to add a link to the table of contents tab on each of the worksheets in Cell A2. Can anyone help? I tried to decipher what's going on in the code but was unable to.


Option Explicit

Sub CreateTOC()
'Declare all variables
Dim ws As Worksheet, curws As Worksheet, shtName As String
Dim nRow As Long, i As Long, N As Long, x As Long, tmpCount As Long
Dim cLeft, cTop, cHeight, cWidth, cb As Shape, strMsg As String
Dim cCnt As Long, cAddy As String, cShade As Long
'Check if a workbook is open or not. If no workbook is open, quit.
If ActiveWorkbook Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "You must have a workbook open first!", vbInformation, "No Open Book"
Exit Sub
End If
'Turn off events and screen flickering.
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
nRow = 4: x = 0
'Check if sheet exists already; direct where to go if not.
On Error GoTo hasSheet
'Confirm the desire to overwrite sheet if it exists already.
If MsgBox("You already have a Table of Contents page. Would you like to overwrite it?", _
vbYesNo + vbQuestion, "Replace TOC page?") = vbYes Then GoTo createNew
Exit Sub
x = 1
'Add sheet as the first sheet in the workbook.
Sheets.Add before:=Sheets(1)
GoTo hasNew
GoTo hasSheet
'Reset error statment/redirects
On Error GoTo 0
'Set chart sheet varible counter
tmpCount = ActiveWorkbook.Charts.Count
If tmpCount > 0 Then tmpCount = 1
'Set a little formatting for the TOC sheet.
ActiveSheet.Name = "TOC"
With Sheets("TOC")
.Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = cShade
.Rows("4:65536").RowHeight = 16
.Range("A1").Value = "TITLE"
.Range("A1").Font.Bold = True
.Range("A1").Font.Name = "Arial"
.Range("A1").Font.Size = "24"
.Range("A2").Value = "Month: "
.Range("A2").Font.Bold = False
.Range("A2").Font.Name = "Arial"
.Range("A2").Font.Size = "24"
End With
'Set variables for loop/iterations
N = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Count + tmpCount
If x = 1 Then N = N - 1
For i = 2 To N
With Sheets("TOC")
'Check if sheet is a chart sheet.
If IsChart(Sheets(i).Name) Then
'** Sheet IS a Chart Sheet
cCnt = cCnt + 1
shtName = Charts(cCnt).Name
.Range("C" & nRow).Value = shtName
.Range("C" & nRow).Font.ColorIndex = cShade
'Set variables for button dimensions.

cAddy = "R" & nRow & "C3"
'Add button to cell dimensions.
Set cb = .Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRoundedRectangle, _
cLeft, cTop, cWidth, cHeight)
'Use older technique to add Chart sheet name to button text.
ExecuteExcel4Macro "FORMULA(""=" & cAddy & """)"
'Format shape to look like hyperlink and match background color (transparent).
With Selection
.ShapeRange.Fill.ForeColor.SchemeColor = 0
With .Font
.Underline = xlUnderlineStyleSingle
.ColorIndex = 5
End With
.ShapeRange.Fill.Visible = msoFalse
.ShapeRange.Line.Visible = msoFalse
.OnAction = "Mod_Main.GotoChart"
End With
'** Sheet is NOT a Chart sheet.
shtName = Sheets(i).Name
'Add a hyperlink to A1 of each sheet.

"Charts will have hyperlinks associated with an object."
'Toggle message box for chart existence or not, information only.
If cCnt = 0 Then strMsg = ""
MsgBox "Complete!" & strMsg, vbInformation, "Complete!"
End Sub

Public Function IsChart(cName As String) As Boolean
'Will return True or False if sheet is a Chart sheet object or not.
'Can be used as a worksheet function.
Dim tmpChart As Chart
On Error Resume Next
'If not a chart, this line will error out.
Set tmpChart = Charts(cName)
'Function will be determined if the variable is now an Object or not.
IsChart = IIf(tmpChart Is Nothing, False, True)
End Function

Private Sub GotoChart()
'This routine written to be assigned to button Object for Chart sheets only
'as Chart sheets don't have cell references to hyperlink to.
Dim obj As Object, objName As String
'With the button text as the Chart name, we use the Caller method to obtain it.
Set obj = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Application.Caller)
'The latter portion of the AlternativeText will give us the exact Chart name.
objName = Trim(Right(obj.AlternativeText, Len(obj.AlternativeText) - _
InStr(1, obj.AlternativeText, ": ")))
'Then we can perform a standard Chart sheet Activate method using the variable.
'Optional: zoom Chart sheet to fit screen.
'Depending on screen resolution, this may need adjustment(s).
ActiveWindow.Zoom = 80

Do you want a hyperlink back to the table of contents on every sheet?, how many sheets? you could do this manually vey quickly.

Hi Simon,

I have to create a new Excel file each month and this month's contained 223 worksheets.

The Macro already creates the 'TOC' which links to each of the worksheets. Since there are so many worksheets, I would like to had a hyperlink back to the 'TOC' in Cell A2 of each worksheet to make navigating through the file easier.

It would be too much work to do manually. I tried to Select All Worksheets and then paste the hyperlink so that it carries through to all the sheets but Excel doesn't let me do it.

Since the Macro already traverses through all the spreadsheets in the workbook, I thought it would be easy to add a few lines in the code that would add the link to the TOC as it goes along.

This should do what you need, create a module and add this
sub linkit()
Dim Sh As Worksheet
For Each Sh In Sheets
If Sh.Name = "TOC" Then
Sheets(Sh.Name).Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Sheets(Sh.Name).Range("A2"), Address:="", SubAddress:= _
"TOC!A1", TextToDisplay:="Table of contents"
End If
Next Sh
End Sub

after this line in your code ActiveWindow.Zoom = 80, add Call linkit
