Hi all,

I want to create a list box or combobox preferrably with the titles of the other worksheets in a workbook. There are many worksheets, and when I create a new one, I ould like the list to update.
Also on mouse click of a particular worksheet name in the list I need the user to be able to go to that worksheet.

I would appreciate some code for this as I have little VB or excel programming skills.
Thanks.

Excel has this feature already: Right click the |< symbol in the bottom left corner of the Sheet-tabs bar.

If you need this in VBA please wait for another expert, I try to stay clear of Forms (because of ActiveX)

Hi investfx,

You need the combobox on a sheet or a userform?

This code can
1. lists all sheet names in the combobox when open the file.
2. update the list when adding a new sheet, and
3. activate a sheet according the combobox item clicked.

Put ComboBox1 and following Sub in Sheet2:
Private Sub ComboBox1_Click()
Sheets(ComboBox1.Text).Activate
End Sub

Put following Subs in ThisWorkBook:
Private Sub Workbook_NewSheet(ByVal Sh As Object)
Sheet2.ComboBox1.AddItem Sh.Name
End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
For Each aSheet In Sheets
Sheet2.ComboBox1.AddItem aSheet.Name
Next
End Sub
