How do I get links not located within the tabs div to go to and open specific tabs?

I want the blue buttons to jump down to the tabs on the bottom of the page and also land on the matching tab. So, for example, if the blue "Woven Patch Pricelist" button is clicked, I want it to scroll down to the tabs and also open the "woven patches" tab. Right now if seems to be scrolling down but not activating the matching tab.

Does that makes sense?

I believe this should do it
$('.btn-add-cart').click(function() {
  var target = 'a[href="' + $(this).attr('href') + '"]';
  $(target).tab('show');
});

That did work. Thanks. Sorry it took so long to respond; I got working on other things. Do you find that it lands about 100 pixels too low? Is that because of the navigation bar that stays on top of the page no matter what?

The code above does not deal with the scrolling - that is happening because the target id is under the tab headings - the scroll be to place the id at the top of the screen - even if you take the menu away it will still scroll the tabs out of view.

To fix that you need your target points to be above the tabs.

What you could do is this
Change the
<div class="product-tab">

Open in new window

to
<div class="product-tab" id="product-tab">

Open in new window

Then your links change from
<a class="btn-add-cart" href="#100">100% Emb. Pricelist</a>

Open in new window

To
<a class="btn-add-cart" href="#product-tab" data-tab="#100">100% Emb. Pricelist</a>

Open in new window

Note all links now point to #product-tab and we have added a custom data attribute that now has the Tab target.
We change the jQuery to
$('.btn-add-cart').click(function() {
  var target = 'a[href="' + $(this).data('tab') + '"]';
  $(target).tab('show');
});

Open in new window

This gets us most of the way. What we are doing is pointing the links to the top of the Tab Menu rather than the individual tabs. This still puts the tabs under the menu.
We can get around that by changing the margin-top on the product-tab to padding and increasing it a bit
Line 4095 of styles.css
.product-tab {
  padding-top: 50px;
}

Open in new window

That should do it.
