folks I have a function which activates a select from a specific workbook

Function Select Region()

' Activating GenericUser sheet
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Region1").Activate

however I would like to change the sheet to be used based on the region as specified in sheet 1 i.e.

if sheet1 b1 = europe then

ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Region1").Activate


else if sheet1 b1 = asia then

ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Region2").Activate

else if sheet1 b1 = africa then

ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Region3").Activate

how do i correctly program this?
