Vertical Scroll with Links

Hi, I've attached an image for reference.

In the image you will see that this is going to be a "Veritcally Scrolling Container" - Currently there are no arrows to go between each item, but we can add them in if necessary.

On the left side you see a few links - "Collections Management", "Reporting and Benchmarking", "Charge Capture", "Coding and Compliance" and "Claims Management".

Currently, the screenshot shows what happens if "Charge Capture" were to be clicked. If someone should click on "Collections Management", it should jump to that and show the appropriate content.

If we were to setup arrows, the arrows would simply just jump between links.

I am trying to find an example of how to do this, and I cannot seem to find anything. Any help on this would be great. I have a deadline for the morning on this and I am stumped.

Thank you in advance.

Also, there are more links so when it scrolls it has to show more that are hidden.

Must the selected link be in the centre always - what happens when you get to the last / first link

Is the section on the right linked to that on the left or does it scroll independently

From what you have told us I understand you want your navigation on the right to scroll so that the select item is in the center - to get to other items top and bottom either would require arrows or sensing the mouse at the top bottom of the container?

We could just have the navigation scroll. When it gets to the top or the bottom, then it will stop and they can either only go up or down.

The item clicked can stay where it is if need be, but we need at least the content to stay where it is, in the center.

Similar to this: http://www.impressivewebs.com/demo-files/vertical-news-slider/

But I would need the nav on the left to scroll. In fact if the nav on this could scroll, that would be great.
