I'm trying to learn VBA and already having problems! /-:

I'm looking for the code for the workbook which, according to the book, I get to by right clicking on the workbook title bar and selection "view code".  

But what I think is the title bar doesn't produce a drop down with that option.

Are you trying to get into the VBA Panel itself?

Alt+F11 or enbale the Developer Tab and choose Visual Basic.

Optionally, if you are working on a project that has objects, such as Buttons or Dropdown boxes, you can right-click the object and select View Code.

What they actually may be referencing is the Worksheet Title...

Mike,

I'm not sure which book are you reading, but I can tell you that there are lots of errors in books.

The easiest way to see the vba code of the workbook is to go into VBA Editor by pressing Alt-F11, then double click on ThisWorkBook under VBAProject (filename) filename should be the file you are working on, in the Project Explorer on the left. See Picture below.

fyi the book is "Excel 2010; power programming with VBA",  the exact line is under the heading: "Activating the VBE" and the instruction I was referring to is "you can access two special modules as follows... Right-click a workbook's little bar and choose View Code..."

But, as you can see from my question, I assume what I was pointing to is the "title bar" but it appears to be inert. Rt clicking only brings up the "restore move..." options.

Note the reference was definitely  "workbook", not worksheet.

It would appear that the instruction was a  mistake.
