Hello

 VBA Issue
There are multiple sheets in a workbook. There are multiple workbooks in a folder.
While iterating through each workbook, do this >>
Activate the first worksheet which is also visible and then save the workbook.
Reason – several of the workbooks I open , are showing the last sheet as activated when I open them.

Hello Kevin,

I have multiple files in a folder. Each file has zillions of tabs. And I see that when I open each file, the last tab opens up in most of the files. So I would rather prefer when I open each file, that the first visible tab appears, not the last one? Get it?

Yes.

Before saving the workbook, execute this line:

    TargetWorkbook.Sheets(1).Activate
