Define a sheet name to be returned to later.

I need to leave a current sheet and return to it. How do I set this up? I have tried many different ways, but can't seem to get it to work.
Dim CurSht As Worksheet
  
  Set CurSht = ActiveSheet
   MsgBox "current sheet=" & CurSht

You can do it with Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown
also, the code you wrote is not good...
it should be like this, but anyway, it doesn't do what you want it to do... it just pops the activesheet's name...
Dim CurSht As Worksheet
  
  Set CurSht = ActiveSheet
   MsgBox "current sheet=" & CurSht.Name

  Set CurSht = ActiveSheet

'more code

With CurSht
    .Parent.Activate
    .Select
End With

I saved the variable CurSht to another sheet that the user has to check for changes, then send to the printer. I can't get the program to recognize the CurSht variable again.
Unload Me
        Sheets("napa").Select
        Sheets("NAPA").Range("K23") = CurSht
End Sub




Sub Rectangle124_Click()
    Dim CurSht As String
    Dim STDprinter As String
    CurSht = Range("K23").Value
    STDprinter = Application.ActivePrinter
    Application.ActivePrinter = "OKI MICROLINE 1120 on Ne00:"
    Sheets("NAPA").PrintOut
    Application.ActivePrinter = STDprinter                'change back to standard printer
   MsgBox "Current Sheet=" & CurSht
    Sheets(CurSht).Select

End Sub

After working with it some more, It's picking it up. But the code seems to stop after printing the document.
When it gets to the Rectangle124_click(), I don't get any MsgBox replies.
Unload Me
        Sheets("napa").Select
        Sheets("NAPA").Range("K23") = CurSht
        CurSht = ""
        MsgBox "cursht=" & CurSht
        
        CurSht = Range("K23")

        MsgBox "CurSht=" & CurSht

End Sub

'Does not work below here, except for the print


Sub Rectangle124_Click()
    Dim CurSht As String
    Dim STDprinter As String
    CurSht = Range("K23")
    STDprinter = Application.ActivePrinter
    Application.ActivePrinter = "OKI MICROLINE 1120 on Ne00:"
    Sheets("NAPA").PrintOut
    Application.ActivePrinter = STDprinter                'change back to standard printer
    MsgBox "CurSht=" & CurSht
    Sheets("CurSht").Select
    MsgBox "CurSht=" & CurSht
    Sheets("Sheet7").Select


End Sub
