Will changing a sheet name break the cell links?

I want to change a sheet name, but it is the source sheet to another sheet with cell links.  Does anyone know if the links will break, if the source sheet name is changed?

Thank you,



Bill

    I just tested with data that is both cell linked and connected via a cross-sheet formula refrence. In both instances when the referenced sheet was renamed, the data did not break or change.

    You're welcome. Let the community know if something goes wonky! 

  • When I renamed my sheet, the reference in another sheet's formulas still showed the old sheet name.

    Hi Jack,

    Is it still showing the wrong name?

    Have a fantastic week!

  • Hi Andree,

    The old name kept showing up, even after reloading the page, closing the browser and logging back in. I logged a ticket about it but my solution for now was to create a new page with the formulas the reference the one I renamed and delete the other one.
