Trying to figure out how Excel determines which cell to make active when a previously saved workbook is opened. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

The cell or cells that were selected when the workbook was saved will be selected when the workbook is opened. Or, with vba, a specific cell can be made to be selected when th workbook is opened.

little more information

I have an Excel workbook that, when reopened, shows the cell that was active when the workbook was last saved and then in a flash re-positions back to cell A1. There is no code associated with this file so I'm not sure what might be causing it. Thanks again to all.
