Hi I am using the following code to open another workbook and it works great. However I was wondering how it could be adapted so that when it opens the workbook it also makes the newly open workbook the current active workbook on screen.

At the moment it opens but I remain on my current workbook.

Code:
Sub Finance_Overview()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Workbooks.Open Filename:="D:\Finance\Finance Overview.xlsm"
ThisWorkbook.Activate
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

I would be grateful for any help.

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.

Sub abc()


Dim wb As Workbook, wb1 As Workbook
Dim xpath As String


Set wb = ThisWorkbook




xpath = "C:\Users\lakshya\Desktop\excel & vba training\copy.xlsx"


Set wb1 = Workbooks.Open(xpath)
wb1.Activate
' now u can write the code
wb1.Close (False)
wb.Activate


End Sub

Thanks for the reply. I'm quite a novice at this so I don't suppose you could elaborate a bit more could you. I'm guessing I need to enter something into where you have put "now u can write the code" but I'm not sure what.
