Here is a 2-step procedure that does what you want:

1. Create a tag (or bookmark) to label the target cell:
        select the target cell, or just put the cursor somewhere in the cell
        Find | Add/Remove Cell Tags... (Ctrl-J in Windows )
        create the tag using the dialog box
2. Create a link to the tag:
        select the source text for the hyperlink
        Input | Create Hyperlink...
        select the target tag using the dialog box
