Hi there (my first ever post!)

Pretty basic, but annoying me! How do I activate a particular worksheet? I have made a VBA procedure that uses only one worksheet, so i need to activate it at the start of the routine. Any help will be much appriciated. Thanks
 

Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

If you really need to activate:

worksheets("name").activate

Otherwise

With Worksheets("name")
....code....
End With

is a better option.

Welcome.

You use worksheet("worksheetname").activate

where worksheetname is the name on the worksheet tab eg. Sheet1

Hi,
if you have only one worksheet then

Sheets(1).Activate

or

Sheets("YourSheetName").Activate

do you really need to activate the sheet when you have only one sheet?

rgds,
