Folks,
In my spreadsheet I have command buttons that takes the user to specific cell location. For example, cmdTextFomatting_Click executes Range("A47").Select.  No problem here. However, the user has asked that when they go to a specific cell location that it also makes that cell location the top of the spreadsheet just as if the user scrolled.
Each section also has a command button labeled "Top" and this goes to cell A1 that returns them to the top. This is FYI so you can understand how they would return to the top.
I thought of hiding the columns not needed and unhiding them when they returned to the top, but wanted to know if there was an better way?

The advantage of scrollrow is that you can also show a number of rows above the selected cell as in

ActiveWindow.ScrollRow =Range("A47").row -2
