Hi
I have 3 sheets and they are showing in the vba editor/project window as following:

- sheet1(hello1)
- sheet2(hello2)
- sheet3(hello3)

I am moving these sheets around using vba code and I want to make sure that sheet1 is the active one after whatever move I do. I remember once I used code name to activate sheet1(hello1), but it does not work now

Code:
Sub abc()
    Workbooks(1).Sheet1.Activate
End Sub
I am trying to avoid using worksheets("hello1")

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Do not specify the workbook.
Codenames refer to the workbook, that contains the code
