In Excel, to go to a specific sheet, you can use the right click.

Place the cursor at the litter arrows at the bottom left corner of the sheet, and the right click, you can see there is a context menu popping out to show first 15 sheets.

If there are more than 15 sheets in your workbook, you can click More Sheets to the Activate dialog, in this dialog, all sheets are displayed in it, and just scroll to find the sheet you want, and click it to go to activate it.

Note: In Excel 2013, the Activate dialog box will pop out directly when right clicking the arrows at bottom-right corner of Sheet Bar.

If there are so many sheets in a workbook, this is not a good choice to find and go to the specific sheet by scrolling.
