I'm creating a spread sheet which contains 52 tabs (1 for each week). Instead of manually naming each tab, I would like to create a VBA script that automatically renames each tab using the following naming convention, wk end 1-2, wk end 1-9, wk end 1-16, etc.
I'm not familiar with how to write VBA code and would like some assistance in writing the script correctly.
I want to capture data from another workbook each month where the sheet name that I need the data from changes each month. i.e. 0810, 0811, 0812, 0901. Are possible sheet names. I've tried to build this unsuccessfully into the my -
my formula is as follows: =(VLOOKUP(A7,'[Monthly AR Analysis - Feb09.xls]AR - Current'!$A$1:$I$153,8,FALSE)). I will be using this for formula on about 15 different worksheets ... my issue is the file name changes every month and currently I have to go in and do a find and replace, I would like to have one main page where I could change the file name month and it will change all the rest.
ie: Monthly AR Analysis - Feb09.xls next month changes to Monthly AR Analysis - Mar09.xls .... So basically each month I want it to pick up the new file that has been saved with the new name. So what I would want is to be able to have a cell that I could change the Feb09 to Mar09 and then it would do the same to all the worksheets. I attempted to use CONCATENATE to change file name and it worked but will not work within the Vlookup.
I am running into an error when creating a macro to make a pivot table and sum certain columns. I am fairly certain this is due to the name changing to PivotTable2, 3, 4, etc. each time. Is there a way to make the name stagnent so when a table is created in the macro it doesn't error out the formulas? I have an example below.
Using Pivot Table, I added a field to the "Values" field in order to give me a sum of the numbers. The title automatically changes to "Total", I am needing it to show "Total Invoice to OOM Delta". Is there a way to do this? I tried the Active Field option, but that's not working for some reason.
Using VBA, can anyone please advise if it is possible to change the name of a large number of files in a directory. I want to get each file name as a string, truncate the first few characters, then change the name to the new filename, all without opening any of the files whose names are to be changed.
I have a long list of tabs listing "projects" which have changing names - on the first sheet, I want to have the table of contents automatically update and link to each tab - I want the user to only have to change the tab name to have the table of contents and link update -
I have a workbook where Sheet 1 Col A is a list of dates. Sheet 2 Col A is a relatively short list of constantly changing names. I need to put this list of names in a repeating fashion in Sheet 1 Col B. Ideally I would like for Sheet 1 to regenerate Col B each time the roster list is changed.
I've been referencing sheets in my code directly with things like
however in recreating a new workbook (to reduce bloat), the sheet-numbering has changed... to avoid having to mess around adjusting things again, I was wondering if it's possible to do some sort of indirection... something similar to
How can I select sheets in a workbook based on the premise that the sheetname does not have the letter "Q" in it? New to forum, so apologies if format is not kosher. I have a group of 50+ workbooks which are all set up in the following format:
-Contains 30+ sheets. -Sheet names are varied, but follow a pattern. I try to keep the sheet names consistant on all workbooks so that it is easier to reference, but other users make this impossible. -However, I managed to keep two things consistant: There are two categories of sheets. In one group all sheetnames have a "Q" in them and in the other group all sheetnames DON'T have a "Q" in them.
Here is my problem: I need to run a macro to perform retative tasks on the GROUP OF SHEETS WITHOUT A "Q". To begin the macro I need to select these sheets and copy them to a new workbook, but since the actual sheetnames are varied, I am having trouble coming up with a flexible way of selecting sheets. The closest I have come is using a IF ... LIKE ... THEN statement, but I can only get it to work to select the sheets with a "Q" in the name and not the opposite.
I am fairly new to macros and have trouble with VBA. I have a file with multiple worksheets. Each worksheet contains the name of a specific location in cell A8. I want this name in cell A8 to be the name on the worksheet tab for each worksheet in my file but do not know how to accomplish this. Is that even possible?
I use a web query to import into an excel workbook. As data is changed on the web that the query runs against, I would like the name of the sheet that is being imported into to change to one of the cells that is being imported.
Trying to increment worksheet in order to summarize data from all other worksheets. I have 70+ worksheets and I'm trying to copy and paste worksheet and cell reference so that the same data on each worksheet is summarized on one sheet. Worksheets are labeled Cost (1), Cost (2), Cost (3) etc. When I copy the cell reference I can't get the worksheet name to change to the next worksheet:
when the accounts exported to excel, all the tabs shown in the file are generated. However, i need to change tab '3' to tab '10' name to the name stated in tab 'menu'. eg tab 1 need to be renamed as 'BB' (not BB/Bunut), tab 2 to 'GEN' (not GEN/General), etc. All must be capital letter.
I want to select a specific worksheet by it's VB name. In other words, if the sheet comes up as: Sheet3 (ESF) in the VB Editor, I would like to choose it using the Sheet3 designation. I can do it using the (ESF) designation using:
But I prefer to use Sheet3 so when the users change the name, the macro still works.
What I want to do is have a ComboBox (I think it should be a ComboBox, I want the user to be able to select multiple options at once) and display the names of the worksheets in the ComboBox. I could not find a way to do this directly with rowsource and thought about writing a loop to check the current worksheets with their names and put the values into cells, to this way have the names displayed in the ComboBox via rowsource?
I have this logic that clears cells in all WS in WB.
The logic is using each sheet name to reference the logic to clear the contents. Look:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="" With Application .ScreenUpdating = False .EnableEvents = False Response = MsgBox("This Action Will Prep For A New Week. Do you want to Continue?", vbYesNo) If Response = vbNo Then Exit Sub End If
I have created a workbook. That has 35 worksheets within it. I have created a series of buttons and put in a macro code so that when the user clicks on the button it changes the active worksheet to what they clicked on.
So basically when they click button b it changes to worksheet b and if they click button c it changes to worksheet c, ETC.
The problem I have is that since it is a macro it works fine on my computer but when it is sent to other users, because of security settings on their pcs it will disable the macro [thus the buttons will not work or show up]. I have created a digital trust certificate for it. However it is alot of steps to install this for the basic user. Is there a way to create a button that will do what I want without using a macro code. In that it will be able to go to many different users and wont have to worry about the buttons not working because of security settings?
I currently have a workbook that copies the first sheet and emails it to an individual on the first day of the week.
New requirements are for it to be sent to a list of people.
I am at an impasse on how to proceed due to lack of knowledge. The current code obtains the recipient from Sheet3 D4 and i would like to be able to list down this column for additional emails without restricting this to a set number of cells.
I have searched the forum and have been unable to find what i am after.
I have included a test file to show what i have so far. We use Outlook 2k3 We use Excel 2k3
Basically I want to be able to get the names of all sheets in a workbook. I know how to get Excel to print the name of the sheet in a cell once the file is saved, and I know how to hide sheets to make sure that all sheets are referenced in a range. If the name of the worksheet is in the same cell across all sheets (except the ones I don't want included on the totals page), is there a way to call that range and have Excel print off all the worksheet names in different rows or columns via a fill function?
Difficulties: the user may add/delete, rename, and have any number of, worksheets in the workbook. Because these variables are unpredictable, I am having difficulty figuring out the way to do this. Also, the formula should be able to ignore the sheets which have no value in the expected cell.
