Am i being stupid? :oops:

How do i set the actice sheets font ?

I've tried

Activesheet.font.name="times new roman" to no avail.

Please can some body point me in the right direction!
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Very close, but Font is not a property of the Activesheet, rather of its Cells property (among others).
Use
Code:
Activesheet.cells.font.name="times new roman"
instead
