I am attempting to select a specific Excel sheet within my Excel VBA Code. In selecting say "Sheet2" I am writing Excel headers and would also like, etc. like this
With oExcel.Sheets(1)
End With
The problem is that since the .Range and .Selection properties are on the same level as .Sheets property, I can't seem to work with Sheet2 like I need to as in the code below. I'm sure there's a way to get around this but I haven't figured it out yet.

Thank you for your help Experts!

With oExcel
        .Range("A3", "A54").Select
        .Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 1
        .Selection.Font.Name = "Tahoma"
        .Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 2
        .Selection.Font.Size = 10
        .Selection.Font.Italic = True
    End With
