I have many workbooks with as many as 100 sheets per workbook. I want to be able to look at one particular cell on each sheet and be able to click through the sheets and have the cell I want to be highlighted so I can check a total on each sheet. I cannot find any directions on how to do this. I tried grouping the sheets and using GoTo (F5) the cell number. It worked for a few sheets, then stopped and I had to navigate to the cell manually. When my spreadsheets were in Lotus, I could put group mode on and go directly to the cell on each sheet. Can you help?
group mode and the F5 thing should work just fine. No idea why it didn't. However, you can use this alternative.
Go to the VBE, double-click the "ThisWorkbook" object, put in this code
Private Sub Workbook_SheetActivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
Range("F3").Select '<====change to the cell you want
and every sheet will have that cell activated when you select it.
The only down side is that you'd have to put this procedure into every workbook (not worksheet) you want this to happen it. But it's fairly trivial.
