I'm using LibreOffice

Is it possible to create a hyperlink in a cell ( text or button ) in one
Calc Document on one Sheet so if one click on that hyperlink then get
focused another Sheet in the same Document?

The purpose of this would be that that one should not searching a specific
Sheet in the same Calc document but only to click in the first Sheet on a
hyperlink so to get quickly the desired Sheet focused for a data entry.

I tried this with 'Control+K' in a cell and setup there the desired Sheet in
the same document. I then get a #1 text in the cell but it doesn't work;
when I click on it with 'Control + mouse click' I get not focused the
desired Sheet.

Why can't I achieve this goal this way?

I assume you are using Insert > Hyperlink > Document, then leaving the document path blank and either entering the sheet name in the "Target" field or using the button next to that field to select a sheet?

It doesn't seem to work with sheet names resembling row or cell references (e.g. "3" or "AB5") - clicking the link just takes you to that row or cell on the current sheet. Possibly a bug, so may be worth reporting at As you enter details there, it shows other bugs which may match. If one of them is the same issue, there's no need to continue reporting it again; add a note to the existing report only if you have new information (lots of comments saying "me too" only hinders the process as it's difficult to see the useful and relevant information amongst other comments!)

As a workaround, try entering the hyperlink target as "1.A1". That takes you to cell A1 on the sheet named "1". Of course, you can use a cell other than A1 if it would help to go directly to some other cell.

Also be aware that renaming the sheets does not update the references in hyperlinks, as it does for formulas. So if you later decide to rename that sheet to "Month1", the hyperlink will stop working.
