Hi
in VBA, if I say worksheets(1), which sheet is that? the first one in the left hand side (physically the first one) or the first sheet that is created?
lets say I have 4 sheets A,B,C and D. A was the first sheet created. Then I changed the order, copy/move etc and now I have these sheets listed as

D, A, F, B, C

Which one is worksheets(1) now?

Can I print/display sheets number? Thank you

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Testing indicates that Worksheets(1) will return the name of the sheet farthest left, in this case "D".

And yes, you can:

Code:
Sub SheetsName()
MsgBox Worksheets(1).Name
End Sub
