I have an Excel spreadsheets with around 40 sheets. These are worked on by other people and i only need to access one of them (a graph). Is there anyway i can create a direct shorcut from my desktop to the specific sheet within the excel workbook?

I've got one where I check my username to run a macro on opening the sheet.  You could do similar, e.g.:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
If Application.UserName = "Steve Knight" Then
End If
End Sub
