I want to retrieve the name of the currently active worksheet and I thought I could use a statement like:

Name1=worksheet.name ( I have a DIM statement for Name1 as string)

But I get an error.

How can I extract name of the currently active worhseet?

Thanks

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.
