Excel 2010 combo box to navigate to new worksheets

I am developing a complex workbook with approx. 160 worksheets. I want to set up the first page with some combo boxes that will give the users a choice of most appropriate worksheets to select and go to.

I have set up a list called sheetlist which names the worksheets I want the first combo box to be able to navigate to.

I can I put the list in sheetlist into a combo box and then allow users to select the name from the combo box to navigate to the sheet chosen.

I'm not sure whether I should use form control or active x control combo box.

Any help would be appreciated.

Place an ActiveX Combobox Control.
While design mode is still activated, double click the combobox and place the following code for combobox change event like this.......

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
Sheets(ComboBox1.Value).Activate
End Sub

Open in new window

Where Combobox1 is the name of the combobox.

Don't forget to click on Design mode again to disable it, then only you may select a value from the combobox and test the code.
