      Hi Neil,
      The code works well in my case even extended my array to Array = Array("A2;Sheet2", "A3;Sheet3", "A4;Sheet4", "A5;Sheet5", "A6;Sheet6").
      Can you tell me your Excel version?

    After you get to the desired sheet. Is there a way to copy information from a cell in that sheet and automatically go back to the cell I double clicked on originally in the first sheet?

      Hi James
      You need to manually click the original worksheet tab to back to it. Sorry can't take this into consideration.

    Is there a way to do multiple codes for one tab? such as clicking on another cell to jump into another worksheet.

    How would that code look like?

        Hi, In the line that states xStrRg = Left(xStr, 2), this picks up the cell if its a single number cell i.e. A1, A2, A3. but not if its A11, or A111. how do i write the code to allow me to use cells A1, A11, and A111?

        Hope this makes sense, i'm not particularly technical!!
