The problem is when i work on work sheet , and when i stop till 3rd page, i had saved my document and had closed my work book and while closing i had kept in 3rd sheet itself.

while opening i need that to come to sheet number 1. how is it possible please help me.??? please it's urgent.

Excel will always open at the last edit point - this is by design. The only solution therefore is to use VBA to set the active sheet - as it's very easy to move round sheets I would think that this might be unnecessary, but if you DO need the VBA code I'm more than happy to help further.

I have provided first hand support since `95 for Microsoft Office majoring in Word and Excel - support for all versions from 2 onwards. I'm based in the UK, so please allow for time differences when asking me questions from other parts of the world!


My background is in the insurance industry and call centre areas, but have been called upon to provide many varied solutions.

I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!
