Lesson 19 The Worksheet Object


19.1 The Worksheet Properties

Similar to the Range Object, the Worksheet has its own set of properties and methods. When we write Excel 2010 VBA code involving the Worksheet object, we use Worksheets.

Some of the common properties of the worksheet are name, count, cells, columns, rows and columnWidth.

Example 19.1

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
 MsgBox Worksheets(1).Name
End Sub
 

Running the code will produce a pop-up dialog that displays the worksheet name as sheet 1, as shown in Figure 19.1.

Figure 19.1

The count method returns the number of worksheets in an opened workbook.

Example19.2

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
 MsgBox Worksheets.Count
End Sub
Figure 19.2

Example 19.3

The count method in this example will return the number of columns in the worksheet.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
 MsgBox Worksheets(1).Columns.Count
End Sub
Figure 19.3

Example 19.4

The count method in this example will return the number of rows in the worksheet.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
 MsgBox Worksheets(1).Rows.Count
End Sub

19.2 The Worksheet Methods

Some of the worksheet methods are add, delete, select, SaveAs, copy, paste and more.

Example19.5

In this example, when the user clicks the first command button, it will add a new sheet to the workbook. When the user clicks the second command button, it will delete the new worksheet that has been added earlier.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
 Worksheets. Add
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
 Worksheets(1).Delete
End Sub

Example 19.6

The select method associated with worksheet lets the user select a particular worksheet. In this example, worksheet 2 will be selected.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'Worksheet 2 will be selected
 Worksheets(2).Select
End Sub

The select method can also be used together with the Worksheet’s properties Cells, Columns, and Rows as shown in the following examples.

Example 19.7

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'Cell A1 will be selected
 Worksheets (1).Cells (1).Select
End Sub

Example 19.8

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'Column 1 will be selected
 Worksheets (1).Columns (1).Select
End Sub

Example 19.9

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'Row 1 will be selected
 Worksheets (1).Rows (1).Select
End Sub

Excel VBA 2010 also allows us to write code for copy and paste. Let’s look at the following Example:

Example 19.10

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'To copy the content of a cell 1
 Worksheets(1).Cells(1).Select
 Selection.Copy
End Sub
Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
'To paste the content of cell 1 to cell 2
 Worksheets(1).Cells(2).Select
 ActiveSheet.Paste
End Sub
