I am trying to setup a Conditional Format formula to format a cell only when the cell contains a linked value of "Sheet Link from Cell in Other Sheet"

    Shortest answer is to use a hidden helper column. Make a new column name it hidden and post the cell link at the top. Use an if statement, =if(columnheaderhere@row=$hidden$1,1,0 then use the conditional formatting tool to check if there is a 1 in the hidden column. When you are done simply hide the column.
