Hello All,
I have a question about a vba code : Scrollbar to the left
Clicking on reset button brings the bottom horizontal scrollbar to the very left. How can a vba code be inserted into that reset button so that it does that every time the button is clicked. The reasoning the number is columns is very big and scrolling from right to left at the end of every line is head ache.
Thank you

I haven't worked with it at all, but Stephen Lebans has a solution here that
includes support for horizontal scrollbars:

Looking at your example, it could be as simple as this however - add this code on the CommandClick of the button

Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate
ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 3 'number of left most column you want to be visible
