C# Activate a Worksheet

Activate a worksheet means clicking the worksheet's tab on MS Excel. Usually when we open the Excel workbook, it goes to the worksheet when we closed last time. With Spire.XLS, we can set a worksheet as active sheet in the workbook by using the sheet.Activate() method. Then when we open the excel workbook next time, it goes to the activate worksheet we set.
