Macro Excel - Activex Button that goes on a hidden sheet

Last Modified: 2015-10-01

I have hidden all the sheets in a workbook except Sheet1, on which I have multiple Activex buttons.  

When I click on Button1, it goes on the sheet2 and on sheet2 i have a "back" button that once i click on it, will bring me back to sheet1
I have 10 buttons like this.

Since I have hide all the sheets except Sheet1, i really don't know how I can activate a sheet,  It does give me an error message.

Any suggestion how I can resolve that issue (work with hidden sheets but been able to access it when i press an activex button)

Thanks in advance,
