Hi,

I have a document with many tabs. I would like to navigate from and to Home tab by just using buttons - no hiperlinks and no code. Could someone help please?

Can you sort left to right?
To sort left-to-right, use the Sort dialog box. Click Options. Choose "Sort left to right"

Hi Mary7903

If your question is how to navigate Excel using the keyboard only, you are referring to keyboard shortcuts.

To tab between worksheets:

left to right -> CTRL + PageDown
right to left -> CTRL + PageUp

For other keyboard shortcuts, please refer to Google. This is a good summary to start with: https://www.guidingtech.com/29760/excel-navigation-shortcut-keys/

Using keyboard shortcuts, rather than the mouse, will save you an enormous amount of time.

However, if you must use the mouse - if you right click over the arrows on the bottom left of the screen, a list of all of the worksheets in the workbook will appear; click on the appropriate one to navigate directly there.

Cheers

Thanks pvr928. I’m actually referring to a command button (active x control)

Hi Mary7903

Then difficult to understand how it can be done without using VBA:

Code:
Option Explicit
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Application.Goto Sheet2.Range("A1"), True
End Sub

Cheers

Thanks pvr928. Maybe I should have made myself clearer. I’ve go a spreadsheet with many tabs. On the home tab I would like to have some buttons where I can click and it will take me to each one of the tabs. I believe that I can create basic macros using VBA and assign them to the tab I want to be taken to without much coding? I had no success trying the above:(
