Using a cell to open an existing worksheet in Excel

Is there a way that when a user would click on a cell, that it could open an existing worksheet within the same file?  Instead of having the user find the correct worksheet, a master list could be created and displayed, and then the user would just 'click' the one they wanted?  If so, how could it be done.  If not, thanks for letting me know.

If n a workbook you right click on a tab and select view code.  Now insert  a code module and post the following snippet.

When you run the code it will create a new sheet as a table of contents with hyperlinks automatically

Chris
Sub Hyper()
Dim TOC As Worksheet
Dim sh As Object

    On Error Resume Next
    Set TOC = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("TOC")
    On Error GoTo 0
    If TOC Is Nothing Then
        Set TOC = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Add(Before:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1))
        TOC.Name = "TOC"
    End If
    TOC.Move Before:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
    TOC.Cells.Delete
    TOC.Range("A1") = "Worksheet(s)"
    For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
'        TOC.Range("a" & TOC.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) = sh.Name
        TOC.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=TOC.Range("a" & TOC.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0), _
            Address:="", SubAddress:=VBA.Chr(39) & sh.Name & VBA.Chr(39) & "!A1"
    Next
    TOC.Columns(1).AutoFit

End Sub
