    Anyway to create shortcut icon to open a specific worksheet?

    Hello,

    Is there anyway to create a shortcut icon that I can place on my windows Desktop - That when launched will open a workbook to a specific worksheet/tab.

    Has to be a windows shortcut as the workbook is auto generated eachday and sent to me, so if I add vb code it will not matter as I will get a new workbook the next day thus wiping out the vb code.

    The person who compiles it leaves it on a certain tab that I dont need, but is commonly used by other people - so I would like a shortcut to skip that worksheet and take me to the worksheet that I need to use. No biggie if it cant be done! An answer either way would be cool! cheers

    If you can use a vbscript file then yes.

    create a text file called LaunchMyFile.vbs containing the following code with folder, workbook and sheet set to relevent names.

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    your desktop shortcut points to the LaunchMyFile.vbs
    Cheers
