Return from where I came in Excel

Folks,
I have a workbook with several hundred worksheets. From time to time I make a reference to addtional information that can be found in another worksheet within the same workbook using hyperlink. That's working OK. When the user is done with the worksheet I send them back to the Main Menu by way of a command button.
I do not know which worksheets will have hyperlinks to different worksheets, but I was wondering:
Is there a way to send the user back to the worksheet that the hyperlink exits, rather than the Main Menu?
I expect to have half-dozen of these depending upon the additional information that is provided on he hyperlinked worksheet.

Hi,

you could put this code in a normal module

Global LastVisitedSheet As String

Sub GoToLastVisitedSheet()
   Sheets(LastVisitedSheet).Activate
End Sub

Open in new window

Then put this in the ThisWorkbook module:

Sub Workbook_SheetDeactivate(ByVal sh As Object)
    LastVisitedSheet = sh.Name
End Sub

Open in new window

and assign a macro to the GoToLastVisitedSheet
