replace "action=default" with "activeCell=%27sheetname%27!A1" set active cell in the link, and specify sheet and cell. where Sheetname is the name of the worksheet you're linking to, and !A1 is the name of the cell on this worksheet.


I spent way too long on this very problem. My use case was simpler: I maintain a fairly complex set of account data in Excel and needed to expose certain reports on it (pivot tables, queries) to salespeople.

Appending ActiveCell=CellName didn't work but using the Item=itemName URL parameter did. I just made sure that every table had a unique name. I then grabbed the Sharepoint URL from Share | Copy Link and appended the appropriate parameter, e.g., Item=report_name_of_table.

Not pretty, but it worked.
