Cell Linking to other sheets


I have a source sheet which has a workflow that would trigger whenever any field changes and would copy the rows to a history sheet. I would like to link the Tracking ID between these two sheets specific to that ID#.Hyperlink just shows the entire sheet. Is there a way to cell link that particular ID and would it link to any number of rows that get pulled in the history sheet for that specific ID#?

So whenever a field changes for the tracking # LAB038,the workflow would copy that row into a history sheet.So will I be able to link the Tracking ID to multiple rows with the same ID?

I hope my question is clear.Need some input on this!

    Hi @Ranjini Walter

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could use cross-sheet formulas combined with either a VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH structure to connect the sheets, and when you update the source sheet, it will reflect on the destination sheet.

    Another option would be to use so-called helper sheets. In short, copy the row to a helper sheet and then use my method described previously to get the values you need to another helper sheet and then copy/move the row from that sheet to the main destination sheet.

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!
