Select a worksheet

I'm using the below formula to determine the specific type of equipment from 
a list named: database


value of X2 = DSK and value of X5 = NBK

What I need help with is a way of using the value returned to automatically 
open the relevant worksheet, ie: If "Desktop" is returned the Desktop 
worksheet needs to open and if "Notebook" is returned the notebook worksheet 
needs to open automatically. All worksheets are in the same workbook.
