    Lightbulb Select Sheet based on Combo box selection

    I am trying to set up a (simple?) routine that asks a user to select their name from a combo box then go to a sheet based on their selection. So the name they select in the combo box goes into cell c11 and I use a vlookup formula "=VLOOKUP(C11,PEOPLEDATA,5)" on the range of alphabetically listed names to give me the name of the sheet I want to goto in cell d11. Then I'm stuck for the code that will take me to the page identified in cell d11.

    Can it be done directly from the combo box selection?

    Ultimately this will be in a protected / shared workbook (2010)

    You cannot change sheet with any formula I am aware of.
    You can easily do it with VBA triggered at the Combobox.change event.

    Re: Select Sheet based on Combo box selection

    Sorry, bit of a total noob, how exactly?

    I ask the user to select his name from the list in the combobox, the result given is his name. The action I want is to go the the tab (sheet) identified by the 5th column in the list range

    Sheets (??????).Select

    Hi waterserv, your first solution works just once, on subsequent selections I get an error. The attached file "Dave.xlsm" isn't a user selection combobox. This is a sample of the code I'm using

    The file posted was an answer to your remark in post #1. The file works as expected within the set conditions.
    As for the example with the combobox the sample file is attached
