Access VBA to Count Worksheets in a Workbook

Thank you for looking at my question,

I need to count the number of worksheets in an Excel workbook.

the code I have started with is:
        If intFileSelectedFlag > 0 Then
            Dim objXL As Object
            Dim objWB As Object
            Dim objWS As Object
            
            Set objXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
            Set objWB = objXL.workbooks.Open(strSource, True, True)
            Set objWS = objXL.worksheet
            
            For Each objWS In objWB.worksheets
                lngSheetCount = lngSheetCount + 1
            Next
            
            MsgBox "No. Sheets: " & lngSheetCount, vbOKOnly, "Source: " & strSource
        End If

Open in new window


The code falls over at "Set objWS = objXL.worksheet" with run-time error: 438 Object doesn't support this property or method"

How do I do this please?
