The Worksheet object is a member of the Worksheets collection. The Worksheets collection contains all the Worksheet objects in a workbook.

The following properties for returning a Worksheet object are described in this section:

Worksheets Property

Use Worksheets(index), where index is the worksheet index number or name, to return a single Worksheet object.

The worksheet index number denotes the position of the worksheet on the workbook’s tab bar. Worksheets(1) is the first (leftmost) worksheet in the workbook, and Worksheets(Worksheets.Count) is the last one. All worksheets are included in the index count, even if they’re hidden.

The worksheet name is shown on the tab for the worksheet. Use the Name property to set or return the worksheet name.

The Worksheet object is also a member of the Sheets collection. The Sheets collection contains all the sheets in the workbook (both chart sheets and worksheets).

ActiveSheet Property

When a worksheet is the active sheet, you can use the ActiveSheet property to refer to it.
