I have VBA in an Excel workbook which opens another Workbook.
It opens the new Workbook, but when I Activate the Original Workbook it doesn't switch.

Strangest thing is, that when I do a code step by step, it does switch.

Why is this?

Sub Switch_Script()

Application.Workbooks.Open ("C:\Export.xlsx")
Workbooks(Original_Excel.xls).Activate

End Sub

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.
