I learned here on Web Applications how to link a cell in Google Spreadsheet to a cell in another Google Spreadsheet:

How do I link a cell in Google Spreadsheets to a cell in another document?

Is it possible to link a cell in Google Spreadsheets to a Google Document (text)? I'd like to use the values ​​in cells to fill in forms and contracts have text in Google Docs.

How to do that?

You can't do that. –  dnbrv Feb 1 '12 at 0:57

1 Answer 1

First go to the document you want to link to and copy the URL. Then add it into the HYPERLINK function in a spreadsheet, should look something like:

=HYPERLINK("https://docs.google.com/document/d/238urwfuafhki8w4n8fddwaso45dxw445f/edit","my google document")

Don't forget the surrounding quotes.

-1; This for sure isn't the solution the OP asks for, as it opens the document. –  Jacob Jan Tuinstra Oct 28 '14 at 15:54
