Tab Object [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Office 2003
Multiple objects

Represents a tab in a chart or a worksheet.

Using the Tab object

Use the Tab property of the Chart object or Worksheet object to return a Tab object.

Once a Tab object is returned, you can use the ColorIndex property determine the settings of a tab for a chart or worksheet.

In the following example, Microsoft Excel determines if the worksheet's first tab color index is set to none and notifies the user.

Sub CheckTab()

    ' Determine if color index of 1st tab is set to none.
    If Worksheets(1).Tab.ColorIndex = xlColorIndexNone Then
        MsgBox "The color index is set to none for the first " & _
            "worksheet tab."
        MsgBox "The color index for the tab of the first worksheet " & _
            "is not set none."
    End If

End Sub
