    Dear Excel Savvy,

    I have a Excel workbook with multiple worksheets in it.

    And one worksheet named as “Summary”. In this Summary sheet all other worksheets are linked with formula. Ex. =Calc!F16.

    Now the problem is, can I jump directly to the Cell in calc sheet from where the value in Summary sheet is being calculated.

    Any help in this would be appreciated.

    Hi Chetan

    It is a bit long winded but I click on Formula - Trace Precedents - then click OK and it jumps to the sheet and cell which the formula references.

    Take care

    Just a side note..

    Ctrl + [ - > Trace Precedent..
    Ctrl + ] - > Trace Dependent..

    Ctrl + Shift + [ - > Trace Precedent.. All Levels
    Ctrl + Shift + ] - > Trace Dependent.. All Levels

    Hi Chetan,

    Another alternative is to go to Excel Options > Advanced and deselect "Allow editing directly in cells", then when you double-click your formula in your Summary Sheet you automatically jump to cell F16 on the Calc sheet.

    while CTRL + [ takes you to the first link in formula is there a way to navigate to 2nd link as well. For example if my formula is A2+Sheet2!A1, it will take me to A2 cell but then how do i move to Sheet2!A1?

    Any way out?
