Lock sheet position with VBA


Here I introduce two VBA codes for you to handle this job.

Jump to the sheet

1. Press Alt + F11 keys to enable the Microsoft Visual Basic for Windows.

2. Click Insert > Module, then copy and paste below code to the script.

VBA: Jump to the master sheet

Sub GoToSheet()

    Sheets("Master").Activate
End Sub

Note: In the code slice of Sheets("Master").Activate, you can change the Master to any sheet name as you need.

3. Then save this code, and go back to the workbook, click Developer > Macros.
