Folks,
In the attached workbook the Menu tab has Categories, Topic, and Description. Everything was working fine until I added the Category "Dynamic Date Filters" which does list 3 Topics. The problem I'm having is that when I select the previous Category "Interactive Controls" and then select any topic under that Category I'm off one worksheet from where I should be. Everything prior to "Interactive Controls" works fine. I've checked the code and the Range Manager and made sure my sheets were in correct order. Up till then everything was OK. I'm not getting any errors yet I'm not going to the correct sheet. I've looked at it so long I just don't see the problem.

You're welcome. BTW I don't know if it happens to you, but if I double-click a Topic that doesn't yet have an associated sheet in SheetNames, Excel crashes. To prevent that add line 23 in MainMenu's code.

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim strSheetName As String
Dim lngLastRow As Long

On Error GoTo ErrorRoutine

lngLastRow = Range("D65536").End(xlUp).Row
If Not Intersect(ActiveCell, Range("D3:D" & lngLastRow)) Is Nothing Then
    If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then
        Range("D3").Select
        Exit Sub
    End If
    strSheetName = Worksheets("SheetNames").Range("ShowSheet")(intCatFactor + Target.Row + Sheets("ScrollbarData").Range("B2") - 3)

    Sheets(strSheetName).Activate
    Sheets(strSheetName).Select
    Sheets(strSheetName).Activate
    Sheets(strSheetName).Range("A1").Select
End If
Exit Sub

ErrorRoutine:
    Cancel = True
    MsgBox "The 'Go To Selection' sheet name for your selection needs to be added to sheet 'SheetNames'"

End Sub

Another thing you might want to change in that sub is the error message which I just realized still refers to the "Go To Selection" button we used to have. I would change it to.

   
MsgBox "No worksheet for '" & Target & "' was found in worksheet 'SheetNames'", vbOKOnly + vbExclamation, "Missing Worksheet"
