Ive a workbook, recording daily data for each month, each month having its own sheet. Its annoying to have to open the Workbook, then select the current month.

Any ideas on an Auto_Open macro that will go to the current month sheet?

Thanks.....John in Mosgiel.

Hi John, Im assuming your sheets are named Jan, Feb etc. Place the following code in the ThisWorkbook module (Alt+F11, d-click on ThisWorkbook in left hand window then paste in right hand window)

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim Sh As Worksheet

For Each Sh In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
If Sh.Visible = True Then
If UCase(Left(Sh.Name, 3)) = UCase(Format(Now, "MMM")) _
Then Sh.Activate: Exit Sub
End If
Next Sh
End Sub
