Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the file in the folder shown above.

Create a form/macro such that when you open the workbook you see a form allowing you to choose which worksheet to go to:

Excel VBA Macros exercise - Forms (image 1)

Your form could look like this

One way to do this is as follows.  Create a single-column range called, say, SheetNames (it doesn't matter where), then create the form as above basing your combobox on the SheetNames range (you won't be able to do this unless the range name already exists).  Attach a macro to the workbook's Open event so that it loops over the worksheets building up a single-column list of their names.  Select this list, and set its Name property to be SheetNames - then display your form!

Save your workbook as Tabs answer, then close it down.
