I am developing a metrics tracking database in excel.  I have multiple worksheets, some that need to be consolidated or eliminated, but that is not the point, as it is still a work in progress. The firs issue I am having is that one worksheet, Home, needs to be the first worksheet that is opned everytime regardless of what worksheet was editited and saved in the previous session.  I don't want users being invited to dig around in other worksheets.  I created some vb script and put it at the top of that sheet that looks like this:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("Home").Activate
End Sub

simple but it doesn't work.  It won't open the file to the HOME worksheet everytime.

The second issue is that I created "Main Menu" buttons to return the users back to the home worksheet.  My problem is that when they click on that button and then navigate back to that worksheet they are looking at the main menu button.  How do ensure that everytime one of the three dashboard reoprts are open, Dashboard, HBUS Dashboard and HBCAdashboard are opened they open at the top of the sheet?  Is it as simple as writitng code into each sheet activiating cell A1?
