    Is there a way in which once you navigate to a sheet the other sheets are closed?

    Is there a way to make the "cell reference" work with an offset formula?

    For example, every week I add new data in the next column of row 5 and I'd like to navigate to the most recent data. Normally I'd use (OFFSET($B5,0,MAX(0,COUNT($B5:$Z5)-1))). B5 would represent data for the week of 1/6/2018, C5 represents 1/13/2018, D6 is 1/20/2018, and so on. I'd like the button to find the last cell between B5 and Z5 where data was entered.
