    colour tabs by todays date

    I have a worksheet which has tabs that go from the 1st of the month to the last. I want to have the current days date tab a different colour to the rest when I first open the sheet ie if its the 17th april that tab is red the rest are another colour) I know I can do this manually but wondered if there is a VBA that will do it when I first open the worksheet?

    I have a VBS that currently automatically opens the correct amount of tabs and names them I wondered if this could be added to?

    This is a slightly different approach - lots of ways to do it. This code needs to be pasted in the Workbook Module. It will auto run when you open the sheet, colour the correct tab and select the current day

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Use code tags around code. Posting code without them makes your code hard to read and difficult to be copied for testing. Highlight your code and click the # at the top of your post window. For more information about these and other tags, found here

    Re: colour tabs by todays date

    Thanks for the codes however I think I must be doing something wrong as it only works when I run the module manually ie alt f11 then f5 this then colours the current days tab. I really wanted this to happen when I open the worksheet other wise its the same as colouring the tab manually each day. Im sure as Im a newbie I am doing something wrong, and help greatfully appreciated.

    P.S Answered it myself with an auto_open command
