Count Sheet Tabs Based On Color
I have a worksheet with like lots of color coded tabs and the tabs increase everyday. The tabs are categorized based on 6 colors. I created a first tab in order to give how many tabs i have another each color. Is that doable in excel. Do I need a macro for this.

All I want is each time i open the excel sheet the first tab will be automatically updated with how many tabs I have under each color instead of me counting the tabs.

Rename Tabs With Code
I am pulling my hair out in frustration with this right now. I have a .csv file that I am attempting to run a macro on. I will need to move between tabs, and want to rename a tab to remove the date as it is not consistent in format. I have tried numerous ways, and I don't get an error message, but the tab is not renamed either. Code I have tried is below ....

Code To Select All Tabs In A Workbook
I have been recording different sets of commands then copying/pasteing them together to complete what I want. I have tried to clean it up as best I can but im sure it does things it does not need to. Is there a way to tell it to select all sheets in "Book2.xls" then remove the formatting (font color,comments,shading) rather than using the Array and naming each and every sheet?

What this will end up doing is openeing about 12 files, copying specific tabs from each of those files and pasteing them all to the same workbook (in this example it would be Book2). Then removing the formatting.

Workbooks.Open Filename:="F:123Book2.xls"
Sheets(Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet3")).Select
Sheets(Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet3")).Copy Before:=Workbooks("Book2.xls").Sheets(1)
Sheets(Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet3")).Select
Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 0

VBA Code To Renames Tabs Dependent On Cell Name
Can anyone please help me with some code to rename tabs to match a value in a cell.

When I receive the spreadsheet it is in the standard Sheet1, Sheet2 and so on.

Now in cell E2 there is a Budget Cost code. Now I have to manually rename the tabs to match this code and it is quite time consuming.

Also Sheet1 is different as it has a logo in cell E2 so the budget code on that sheet is in E3 but like I said earlier Sheet2, Sheet3 and so on the budget code is in E2.

Can anyone post a little macro that will rename all the tabs on the worksheet to match the budget code in the above mentioned cells.

VBA Code To Activate Second-to-last And Last Worksheet Tabs In A Workbook?
I use a workbook where new worksheet tabs are added and removed daily. Every day I use the second-to-last tab (2nd from the right) and the last tab (far right).

Apply Macro Code To All Tabs / Sheets
I havae the following macro which i recorded in Excel. I want this Macro to run after another macro that groups data and creats tabs. The following macro will then add a column and run an array formula. I think this can be done in a loop but i'm not sure how to do it. This is working but takes a long time and times out by the time it reaches the last tab.

Application.Run "TotalHrs"
Application.CutCopyMode = False

Sheet Tabs Count
I know excel has a built in function for this. But it won't do what I need for this below.

Say, I have 9 worksheets open. In cell N7 on sheet 1 I need it to count the worksheet tabs.
But the dilema is to only count the tabs that will equal sheet 1, sheet 2, sheet 3, sheet 4, sheet 5, Notice, I have a space before the number. Other sheets have a specific names to them which I do not want to count.

So if sheets 1 thru 3 are visible with the other named sheets visible cell N7 will count 3

Sheet Tabs In 2007
Have designed a spreadsheet in 2003 at work and got home to work on in it using my machine which has 2007 loaded.

I realise I can ctrl-pgup and pgdn but I got a fair bit of movement from sheet to sheet to do and that wont be practical.

2000 Sheet Tabs Missing
I am pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. Any help at all is greatly appreciated. I created a spreadsheet for a friend to track his profit/loss for his business; he is not very computer literate so I created separate tabs for each month. I have no idea what he did but the horizontal scroll bar and all of the tabs are not visible, he is using excel 2000 on windows XP. Unfortunately we are not in the same area so I canít go look at his screen. When he emailed the file back to me and I opened it, it looks fine. Also when he opens any other file it does the same thing. I have gone through all of the obvious causes, everything is correct in the tools, options.

Automatically Rename Sheet Tabs
I have a workbook with multiple tabs. On sheet one a person chooses a date to initialise a formula. That date is then copied to sheet two and placed in cell D5. The date is projected out for two weeks and then the next fornight starts on sheet three and so on. The start date for each new fortnight appears in cell D5 of each sheet. I want that information to be the name of the tab for sheet two, three etc. I have put this code into the "This Workbook" section:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

' Renames all worksheet tabs with each worksheet's cell A1 contents.
'If cell A1 has no content, then that tab is not renamed.

For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
If Worksheets(i).Range("$D$4").Value "" Then
Sheets(i).Name = Worksheets(i).Range("$D$4").Value
End If
End Sub

I have also tried:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$D$4" Then ActiveSheet.Name = Left(Target.Value, 10)
End Sub

I then go back into sheet one and change the date and nothing happens. I seem to be missing something. Can anyone please help?

Consolidate All Of The Tabs In The Master Sheet
I have a file that will have a maximum of about 25 tabs in it. They are all the same format - Column A have account codes, Column B have the account name and Column C through to Column AD have figures. Column B has a drop down menu, so not all tabs will have the same account code on the same row.

I thought that I would create another spreadsheet in the file and call it a master sheet with the same formats as all the other tabs but this master file will have all of the account codes available and will not have a drop down menu in column B. What I wanted to do was consolidate all of the 25 tabs in the master sheet.

Copy Worksheet To End Or Far Right Of Sheet Tabs
This macro helps me create a blank worksheet and automatically names it from the list in column A. Unfortunately, it adds the worksheets to the left of my 'master' sheet called "Tab Names". When I try adding "after" when it adds a new sheet, I keep getting a "compile error: Expected: end of statement". I am positive you will know what steps I'm missing.

' Vendor List Subroutine to
' Open New Worksheet called Tab Names worksheet
' With data from Tab Names

Cells(1, "A").Select 'Ensure that we start each time at the top of the worksheet
Application. ScreenUpdating = False 'Turn of screen updates whilst macro is running
For Each cCell In Range(Cells(1, "A"), Cells(1, "A").End(xlDown)) 'Will run our code through each cell with text
Set NewSheet = Sheets.Add(Type:=xlWorksheet) 'Add new worksheet
NewSheet.Name = "Tab Names Worksheet" 'rename worksheet
Sheets("Tab Names worksheet").Name = cCell.Value

Merge Data From Many Many Tabs (worksheets) Into A New Sheet
Basically I inherited a Excel Workbook which has 128 different tabs, unsurprising this is almost impossible to manage.

My requirement is to merge all of the 128 tabs into 1 tab 'Sheet1'.
The macro should keep going even if there are blanks, it should move onto the next tab only when there are over 10 consecutive blanks in Column B.

I have tried searching the forum but nothing seems to cater for the specifics of this case. I would really appreciate some help. I mean really, i am in a mad panic thinking i will have to do 128 tabs manually otherwise.

Copy Rows From Multiple Tabs Into One Sheet
I am looking to write a macro that will take 5 sheets and paste the rows into 1 summary tab. The names of the sheets are, CMH, ORD, JFK, LAX, and MIA. There are other sheets in the book but I donít want any information from them. The five sheets have the same columns. I want to paste only the rows of the last entry for Origin and Forwarder. I have enclosed an example. So in rows 2 & 3 we have the same Origin-Forwarder combo but I only want the most current which would be row 3. Some Origin-Forwarder just has one entry so of course I would want that one.

Macro - Rename Only & Sheet... & Tabs With Last 8 Characters From Cell
I pull an excel sheet from a database each day that gives me sales data for different products sold. The way the spreadsheet comes from the system, the first tab is named "Document Map" and lists all of the products, and each product then has its own tab but they're generically named (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.). The name of the product is always in cell T8, but the name itself is only the last 8 characters of that cell.

What I'm hoping to accomplish with a macro is two things:

1) Retrieve the last 8 characters from T8 in each tab, and name the tab with those characters (same effect as the formula "=right(T8,8)").
2) Ensure that this only occurs on tabs with the word "Sheet" in the beginning. Depending on the day, there could be any number of products and they each get their own tab, so I was hoping to be able to get the macro to only work on sheets where the first 5 characters are "Sheet" regardless of the number after that.

Macro To Load All Files Within A Folder To New Tabs With File Name As Sheet Name
I wish for a macro to look in to a directory which remains constant, but then looks within a folder which is specified via a cell value in order to load a specific sheet from each file in to the workbook I am currently using. I wish for the loading to be done without having to open the workbooks manually, so something which opens them copies the data from the sheet specified and then closes.

This data is then to be pasted in to a new sheets within my workbook which are named after the file names that it pulls the "dump" sheet from.

As a side note, I will be using these sheets to produce calculations hopefully automatically as soon as they are loaded. They all have the same "shape" but contain differing data. Will it be easier in the long run for me to use this method of pasting data to new sheets named as their file names assuming there will be around 25 "dump" sheets needing to be loaded or would i be better having them paste all to one sheet just underneath each other with a couple of rows separating them?

Click Button To Rename Sheet Tabs Based On Range
I searched a few times for the answer to my problem, using different search terms, but I've come up somewhat empty (this *might* be because I'm not up-to- speed with Excel's terminology?). Anyway, my problem is this: I have a workbook which is designed to track various data for a corporate training course ( sheets for attendance, grades, tool logins, etc). After all of these are sheets numbered 1-25 (we never have more than 25 students in a class, but usually around 20). The numbered sheets correspond to the student's number in the on the class list sheet (so, the first student would have personal "report card" information on sheet 1; the eleventh student in the class list would have their information on sheet 11, etc).

What I would like to do is have some way of putting a button on the class list sheet which would look at student list and rename the sheets to correspond to the student names. For example, if the fifth student listed was 'John Doe', it would rename his personal sheet ('5') to 'John Doe'. Obviously, I would need to do it for all of the students, and IDEALLY it would then get rid of any numbered sheets which are not used (having 21 students would only rename the first 21 sheets, but then hide sheets 22, 23, 24, and 25).

Referencing Selected Tabs To Print Selection & Update Table Of Contents Sheet
I searched but didn't find exactly what I needed. I have a workbook with 31 sheets. It is a price guide with each category on a separate worksheet. I figured out how to list the sheets on a separate tab. What my client wants is the ability to:

1. select certain categories for printing, the ToC, Cover and backcover pages have to print in every case

2. the ToC has to change depending on the sheets selected.

I'd rather write some code and give him an an easy command button rather then teaching him how to select non-concurrent sheets and printing only active sheets.

What I'm really stuck on is the updating of the ToC with active sheets only (category and starting page which changes depending on pages selected).

I plan on using the code for about 200 autoshapes, I thought I could just copy the first code and keep adding it on for each autoshape... I am guessing that the code is stopping after the first set and not continuing?

If Target.Address = "$C$46" Then

This way when there's a lot of things going on you can see what's what without filtering or rearranging.

My issue is, some of my checks have more than one variable as a wrong answer. For example, one check may include Check and Bad as possible outcomes of the formula in the cell.

the code required to allow two different variables to cause the cells to change color.

I tried a second set of the code for the same column and changed the formulas word to Bad but it did not highlight the cells that came out with Bad as the outcome of the formula.

VBA Code - Color Changing Cells
I am trying to create a model that has a mixture of conditional formatting and data validation formulas within it, but have run into a problem in one area. Essentially, cell E10 is a Validation which pulls a drop down list of names. One of the options in this list is "Other".

I want to create a VBA code to make sure that cell E12 will get rid of any input, turn grey (color index = 15), and potentially lock (if possible!) if the "Other" is chosen by the user in cell E10. If any other value is chosen for cell E10, Cell E12 needs to remain unlocked and white (color index=2).

Color Code Values With Function
I have values that I want to color code in my table. Originally I was tagging them as numbers, but instead I need them as colors.

Function conversion(pVal As Double)

If pVal > 0.05 Then
conversion = "1"
ElseIf pVal > 0.001 Then
conversion = "2"
ElseIf pVal > 0.0001 Then
conversion = "3"
ElseIf pVal > 0.00001 Then
conversion = "4"

End If

End Function

Now I want instead of conversion = "1" etc to be

Function conversion(pVal As Double)

If pVal > 0.05 Then
(make white)
ElseIf pVal > 0.001 Then
(make brighter blue)
ElseIf pVal > 0.0001 Then
(make green)
ElseIf pVal > 0.00001 Then
(make navy blue)

End If

End Function

I want the text and cell the same color (number and cell so the number disappears so that I just have a colored cell but the value is still there if I want to look at it).
