Can I link from a Google Sheet, to a specific heading in Google Docs?

I can link to a Google Docs, so it opens it and shows the beginning, but I would like to jump immediately to a specific heading within that Google Document.

In the Google Docs text file that you want to link to, click the target heading. The browser address bar will contain an URL that looks like this:


Copy and paste the URL to the spreadsheet. To make the link nicer looking, use Insert > Link or the hyperlink() function. When you click the link in the spreadsheet, it will open the text file at the heading you selected.
