Represents a tab in a chart or a worksheet.

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
