I have a question about the VBA help.
if after Worksheets I just insert the "." the window appears with the possible choices to continue, for example, (Add, Application, Copy) while if I write Worksheets ("Sheets1") the Help no longer appears?
Thanks

Excel can only display a limited number of suggestions. It displays those when it knows ALL the possible commands that you could choose AND it has space to display them. If there are too many, it doesn't display any until it can narrow down what you're trying to achieve. For example "Sheets1" may be Open, close, delete, copy, rename, move, duplicate, change tab colour etc. etc.
Thanks
