Problem with reloading combo box

Folks,
In my workbook there are numerous worksheets. I navigate between them using a combo box for the first tab (Main Menu) and command buttons on the first tab and corresponding worksheet tabs to return to a designated home position.
Here's the code for the combo box:

Private Sub cboTextFunctions_Change()
Application.Goto Range("C" & cboTextFunctions.ListIndex + 60)
End Sub

This works fine the first time. The code below this returns me to the home position of the combo box. If I tried to immediately select the range I just selected nothing happens.
I have to select a different combo box option before I can return to the one I first selected. Is there a way to "refresh the combo box? I've attahced the workbook

Private Sub Home63_Click()
      Sheets("Menu").Activate
      Sheets("Menu").Range("K2:M2").Select
End Sub

You should have that in the Click event of cboTextFunctions not the Change event.

No problem.
When I select an item in my conbo box it does take me directly to that location. If I select the Home command button it returns me to where I want to go. Now, if I immediately reselected the same item the second time from the same combo box, nothing happens.

You might also want to do this

Application.Goto Range("C" & cboTextFunctions.ListIndex + 60)
cboTextFunctions.ListIndex = -1
cboTextFunctions.Text = "Choose a text function"

End Sub

Let me also suggest that you select cell G10 and then choose 'Freeze Panes' from the View tab and then 'Freeze Panes' from the drop down.

Two things:
1. In order for my code to work properly you need to remove the cboTextFunctions_Change code, and

2. If you freeze the panes as I suggested you may decide that you don't need the 'Home' buttons

Interesting tips - I've considered freezing panes and will first finish this project. My youngest son is not very Excel literate and this should help him a lot.
Again, thanks. I'll follow-up

BTW, and this is important, click the "Date and Time Function" and then the "Basic Financial Functions" button. Do that several times. Do the buttons change size? If so you are experiencing one of the problems with using ActiveX controls on a sheet. For a solution see this article.

I've looked at what you proposed. I would like to open a new question. In this question I would like the get rid of the Home button and when I select from a combo box have the selection appear at the top of the row that was frozen. Possible?
