Also, I'd like to make sure the workbook ALWAYS opens to sheet 1. I have named the sheets, so in the syntax I am using the name rather than sheet1, sheet2, etc. Is that correct?

Yes the CodeName is the name in parenthesis. For example Sheet1(Budget) where 'Budget' is the CodeName.

Open a new workbook and go to ThisWorkBook -> WorkBook -> Workbook_SheetActivate event in the IDE. Is it different than Private Sub Workbook_SheetActivate(ByVal Sh As Object). If it is you can use CodeName rather than Sh.CodeName in your code.
