In our workbook we have several worksheets:
I want to create a list of these on my Index worksheet, like this:
And from that create a list of hyperlinks that will dynamically adjust if I make any changes to them, such as add, delete, or change the names, like this:

We’ll use this formula to create the list of worksheet names:
And this one to create the hyperlinks:
Two important things to note:
1) This will not work if you have spaces in your worksheet names. Therefore, if you must simulate spaces, use an underscore (e.g. red_name)
2) The workbook must be saved as a macro-enabled workbook (.xlsm). This process will not work in a regular Excel workbook.
Take a few minutes and watch the video to see how this very beneficial process can work for you!
