expression A variable that represents a Worksheet object.

If the object is a range, this property emulates the TAB key, although the property returns the next cell without selecting it.

This example selects the next unlocked cell on Sheet1. If Sheet1 is unprotected, this is the cell immediately to the right of the active cell.
