Macro Code Revision - Go to specific cell on open

Hello Experts,

I am currently using this code in my workbook.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("Measuring Up").Range("N27") = "Diameter"
End Sub

In addition to that, I want the active cell to always go to the name range "Start". So anytime the workbook is opened, it's always on a specific cell - which is the named range of "Start".

I thought the code would be something like,...

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("Measuring Up").Range("N27") = "Diameter"
Application.Goto Reference:="Start"
End Sub

But that doesn't work, cause clearly I don't know what I'm doing. :)

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance for your help!

If you have other sheets you might have to do

Sheets("Measuring Up").activate
Sheets("Measuring Up").Range("start").select

The code works fine for me, without a worksheet reference.

What actually happens when you open the workbook?

Do you get an error or does the range not get selected?

@ ssaqibh,

Your solution worked perfectly.  I am now using this code.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("Measuring Up").Range("N27") = "Diameter"
Sheets("Measuring Up").Activate
Sheets("Measuring Up").Range("Start").Select
End Sub

Thanks!
