I have a spreadsheet with hundreds of worksheets named something like
Contract566, Contract630, Contract 912.
I can't seem to easily find a specific worksheet, except by scrolling through them.  Surely surely not!

You might have to make a macro that ask for the worksheet name, then takes you there:
Sub GotoSheet()
    Dim sSheet As String

    sSheet = InputBox( _
      Prompt:="Sheet name or number?", _
      Title:="Input Sheet")
    On Error Resume Next
    If Val(sSheet) > 0 Then
        Worksheets(Val(sSheet)).Activate
    Else
        Worksheets(sSheet).Activate
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

Even then, IDK if that's fast enough because you'd have to type the entire name. What's faster - that or scrolling? 8-)

With your worksheet naming scheme, maybe revise the code so you just have to type the number. Like:
    sSheet = InputBox( _
      Prompt:="Sheet number?", _
      Title:="Input Sheet")
    sSheet = "Contract" & sSheet

Open in new window


Then, the macro puts the "Contract" prefix for you.

Note: I haven't tested it. And it may not be the best way to do it.
