sheets has a name property.  It is used in VBA like this:

    Sheets.Add
    Sheets("Sheet1").Select
    Sheets("Sheet1").Name = "NewName"

Ok, no big deal but how would I know this?  I go into
the object browser and name is not shown as a memeber.
It's subclassed from workbook(s) but I don't see
how any name property I find relates.

How does one investigate all the properties, like a
sheets' name?  If I hadn't seen an example, I never
would have known it existed.

Thanks

While in break mode, use the Locals window (from the View menu).

That shows declared variables ...
It doesn't seem to allow me to browse an object
or its properties.
Does it?  How would you find the name property if
you didn't it even existed?

You can highlight an object (ie: Sheets(1) ) and press SHIFT-F9 and add it to the watch window. You can then explode it to see all its properties. Notice that you have to be running to see it and the object must be alive. A good place to see it is somewhere like:

   Sheets.Add
   Sheets("Sheet1").Select
   Sheets("Sheet1").Name = "NewName"
   'HERE

I'll give it shot.  Wonder why the object
browser doesn't give up the goods?

Object browser should show them to you but you need to know under which class it is.

Wow, there's a mass of stuff in there!
This belongs in the browser!
Thanks for your help.

(Now I have to figure out how to print it for reference.)

I don't think that there is an easy way of printing it.
