Problem finding correct place for code

Folks,
I have tried to work through the code on the list box "Topics" where the user double- clicks on the Topic so it takes them directly to the desired worksheet. I've tried to execute the GoToSelect module in the double-click event so I could then delete the command button  GotToSelection rather than hide this command button.

I don't understand what you are asking. When I double-click one of the topics it goes to the associated sheet. What do you want to do differently?

When I double click an item in the Topics listbox I'm taken to the relevant sheet.

Is that not what you want to happen?

Is there some other problem?

If you want to get rid of the hidden Goto Selection button move the code to the Double Click event of the listbox.
Private Sub lstTopic_DblClick(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
Dim strSheetName As String

    On Error GoTo ErrorRoutine

    strSheetName = Worksheets("SheetNames").Range("ShowSheet")(intListIndex)

    GotoSelection.Enabled = True
    ResetIndicators
    Application.Goto Sheets(strSheetName).Range("A1"), True
    Exit Sub
ErrorRoutine:
    MsgBox "The 'Go To Selection' sheet name for your selection needs to be added to sheet 'SheetNames'"

End Sub

Open in new window

PS I substituted all the activate/select with Application.Goto which will do the same thing.

Actually that won't work because there's something else, well perhaps more than one thing, going on.

PS Why a Click and DblClick for the listbox? They actually appear to be clashing.

Martin & Imnorie,
When I first started this project (from another workbook) the user could click on a Topic and it would go to another section on the  worksheet where the user could click on the command button "Go To Selection". Later it was suggested just double-click on the Topic list box . I've since eliminated everything below the two list boxes and text box and just having the user double-click on the Topic. I've bounced all around trying to make this work. So what I did was simply keep the command button Go To Selection but made it invisible. That's not very good design. I even created a module modGoToSelection and placed that in the double-click event for the Topic list box.  I get this error:
go to selectionI've included the file that this error appears.

Here's a wb that works. Most if not all of the credit should go to imnorie because he understood what you wanted and came up with (most of) the answer. My changes are marked with 'new.

Perfect - I'm surprised at how close I was just missed a few items.
That's why I called you all
Thanks again!
