    Linking to a worksheet in a separate workbook

    All,

    I have several workbooks which I would like to make more user friendly by creating some form of menu and navigation system.

    Is there a way to add a link on a workbook that once clicked will open up another workbook and take the user straight a s specific worksheet?

    I've search the forums but not been able to locate the answer so apologies if this is a repeat question.

    Many Thanks,
    AcesUp.

    The macro is your friend. Recorded this
    Sub Macro1()
    ' Macro1 Macro
    ' Macro recorded 6/3/2006 by Don Guillett
    Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\yourfolder\yourfilename.xls"
    End Sub

    modified to test
    Sub gotoworkbooksheet()'yourfilename in cell a1
    mwb = "C:\yourfolder\" & Range("a1") & ".xls"
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=mwb
    Sheets("sheet3").Select
    End Sub

    modified for double click event.
    right click sheet tab>view code>insert this
    Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As
    Boolean)
    If Target.Column <> 1 Then Exit Sub
    mwb = "C:\yourfolder\" & Target.Value & ".xls"
    Workbooks.Open Filename:=mwb
    Sheets("sheet3").Select
    End Sub
