Using VBA how would I get the sheet name of a range? or how do I grab the sheetname I'm leaving when I do a Worksheet_Deactivate()?

What I want to do is resize a range on sheet X when I do a Worksheet_Deactivate() on sheet X. I can do this no problem when I know the name of sheet X but the end user may change the sheet name.

Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

You can refer to the Sheet Index # or the sheet's code name.

There are explanations of both in the helpfile.

HTH,

Hi Lokai

If this is a named range you are taking about, then you can easily discover the name of the parent sheet:

Code:
MsgBox Range("YourNamedRangeHere").Parent.Name

If you are using the worksheet's DeActivate event then you can refer to the worksheet using Me.
