    Hello,
    I have an excel document that I use often containing several sheets. How can I make one of the sheets the default, so each time I open the document it opens directly to the specified sheet?

    Thanks for any help in advance! :)

    Select the sheet you want as default, then File > Save and the next time you open it, it will open on that sheet.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    If after I do this I close out the application while viewing another sheet will it automatically default to view the last sheet that I was on the next time I open the document?

    I want the document to open to a specific sheet on the document no matter what sheet I was viewing the last time I closed out.

    - Thanks -

    Excel will open the last sheet that had a change made and saved, not the last sheet viewed.

    If you do not want to do this manually, you can do so via VBA. Hit Alt + F11, find your workbook on right, double click ThisWorkbook, add some code..

    Code:
    Private Sub Workbook_Open()
        Sheets("YourSheetName").Select
    End Sub
    Replace the sheet name with your desired name.
