Listing appears in worksheet

Folks,
When you open the attached workbook under "Category" select 'Dynamic Date Filters'. A list will appear under "Topics" and double-click on 'Filtering with Pivot Tables". This appears (without the arrows):
Offset shows upThis I know. The data that appears is the same that appears in the tab "Topics" in column AE. In "Name Manager" this is labeled 'Category'.
I've looked for why this is happening and again, I'm clueless. When I delete the contents of A3:A23 the listing does not reappear.

Add line 12.
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
'Dim lngLastCat As Long
'
'    lngLastCat = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
'
'    With Worksheets("Menu")
'        .Activate
'        .Range("A3:A" & lngLastCat).ClearContents
'        .Range("A3:A" & Range("Category").Rows.Count + 2) = Range("Category").Value
'    End With

    Worksheets("Menu").Activate
    GenCategoryFormulas Sheets("Topics").Range("Category").Rows.Count
    
    Sheets("ScrollbarData").Range("C3").Value = Range("Category").Rows.Count

    ' Select the first category
    Range("A3").Select

    ActiveWindow.Zoom = 90
    '  Make sure that the statusbar is visible
    Application.DisplayStatusBar = True
    
    Application.StatusBar = "Concept and design by Frank Freese. Programming by MartinLiss at www.experts-exchange.com."

    ActiveSheet.ScrollBars("vscrTopic").Value = 1
End Sub

Without that line the last sheet you looked at became the ActiveSheet when the workbook was reopened and so everything in Workbook_Open including the call to GenCategoryFormulas was run against that sheet. GenCategoryFormulas results in the Category list and so it wound up on Filtering With Pivot Tables page rather than MainMenu.

BTW I think we saw evidence of this happening before when we saw a similar misplaced list in the Topics sheet a while back and at that time I assumed that it was the result of some testing.

BTW - this has appeared in the past and I do recall you believed it was the result of some testing. Thanks for all you do for me. We're getting this tweaked. Your explanation makes sense!
