I was hoping to accomplish selecting a range in another open workbook in one line of code:
Code:
Workbooks("Monthly Activities.xlsx").Sheets("Operations").Range("A1").Select
but for some reason I have to split it up into three lines:
Code:
Windows("Monthly Activities.xlsx").Activate
Sheets("Operations").Select
Range("A1").Select
What is the proper syntax for one line?

Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

You can't use select on a sheet that isn't the activesheet try using Goto....

Code:
Application.Goto Reference:=Workbooks("Monthly Activities.xlsx").Sheets("Operations").Range("A1"), scroll:=True
