In VB how can I detect which sheets are selected? If a single sheet were selected, then "selection.address (external:=true)" would be one way to do it. But if the user has selected multiple sheets, or if a preceeding VBA function has done something like
"Sheets(Array("Sheet2", "Sheet1")).Select",
then what?

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Hi DOBrown,
Selection.Address returns the value of *Activesheet*.
Multiple sheets are can be selected, but there is only one Activesheet.

<pre>
Sub test()
Dim wsSelected As Sheets, ws As Worksheet
Set wsSelected = ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets
For Each ws In wsSelected
Debug.Print ws.Name
Debug.Print ActiveSheet.Name = ws.Name
Debug.Print Selection.Address(external:=True); ""
Next
End Sub
</pre>
