In Excel 2003, I hit F1 for help, then searched for the word HYPERLINK

Soon enough, I found the following section in an article named "Create a Hyperlink":

To link to a location in the current workbook or another workbook, you can either define a name (name: A word or string of characters that represents a cell, range of cells, formula, or constant value. Use easy-to-understand names, such as Products, to refer to hard to understand ranges, such as Sales!C20:C30.) for the destination (destination: General term for the name of the element you go to from a hyperlink.) cells or use a cell reference.

1.To use a name, name the destination cells in the destination workbook.
Select the cell, range of cells, or nonadjacent selections (nonadjacent selection: A selection of two or more cells or ranges that don't touch each other. When plotting nonadjacent selections in a chart, make sure that the combined selections form a rectangular shape.) that you want to name.Click the Name box at the left end of the formula bar (formula bar: A bar at the top of the Excel window that you use to enter or edit values or formulas in cells or charts. Displays the constant value or formula stored in the active cell.) .
Name box
Type the name for the cells.Press ENTER. Note You cannot name a cell while you are changing the contents of the cell.

2.In the source (source file: The file that contains information that was used to create a linked or embedded object. When you update the information in the source file, you can also update the linked object in the destination file.) workbook, right-click the text or graphic you want to represent the hyperlink (hyperlink: Colored and underlined text or a graphic that you click to go to a file, a location in a file, a Web page on the World Wide Web, or a Web page on an intranet. Hyperlinks can also go to newsgroups and to Gopher, Telnet, and FTP sites.), and then click Hyperlink on the shortcut menu.
3.Do one of the following:
?To link to a location in your current workbook, click Place in this document under Link to.
?To link to a location in another workbook, click Existing file or Web page under Link to.
1.If you chose Existing file or Web page, locate and select the workbook you want to link to, and then click the Bookmark button.
2.Do one of the following:
?In the list under Cell Reference, click the sheet you want to link to, and then type the cell reference in the Type in the cell reference box. Click OK.
?In the list under Defined Names, click the name that represents the cells you want to link to. Click OK.
3.To assign a tip to be displayed when you rest the pointer on the hyperlink, click ScreenTip and then type the text you want in the ScreenTip text box. Click OK.
