Boa noite!
Por gentileza, tenho um Excel que possui 17 planilhas, sendo que duas delas são a Legenda e a outra Validação, as demais são sequencias numéricas que são tipo Relatóri1, Relatório2, até chegar no Relatório15.
teria como eu selecionar as planilhas de relatórios na sequência numérica através de uma célula variável que se eu colocar o valor 5, por exemplo; a macro seleciona de Relatório1 ao 5?
