Deleting Select Sheets

Aug 22, 2007

I have a File with many sheets (40 - 60) and I'm trying to eliminate the sheets I don't want. The names of the sheets are all random, but in common they have a three letter code for a country.

The following is the code that I have -


Sub Deletesheets()
Dim x As Integer
Application.ScreenUpdating = 0
On Error Resume Next
For x = 1 To Sheets.Count
Sheets(x).Select

I'm hoping to save any sheet that has either CAN or USA the name and delete the rest.

Besides being inefficient, my code errors out because I've got my IF's and ELSE in the wrong place, but I can finagle it to work.

Select Multiple Sheets And If Value In Cell Is True Then Copy Values In All Sheets And Hardcode Data

Feb 26, 2012

I have a workbook that updates from external source and creates sheets depending on a cell range.

I have put tab 1 and tab 0 on either end of where the new sheets will be inputted, will never know how many sheets

What i need to happen is if someone fills in "complete" in A7 in my "summary" sheet then the values in row 6 in all the other sheets get hardcoded. This needs to happen from A7 down to A26, so A8 = complete then copy row 7 etc
This is what i have so far

I get compile error here ........Sheets(ArrSh(1)).Activate

Also need it to work for all the other rows.

Sub hardcode()
'
'Sheets("Summary"). Select
If Range("a7") = "complete" Then
'
Sheets(Array("1", "0")).Select
Sheets(ArrSh(1)).Activate

[Code] ......

Deleting All But Specified Sheets

Jan 19, 2007

i have a procedure that imports data & splits it by staff name, creating a separate sheet for each person

i wanted to ensure if the code was run twice it wouldn't throw up errors trying to name sheets with names already used, so used the following code to delete all sheets apart from the 2 sheets containing my base data (sheet names for these are IDs and base data)

Sub ClearUpSheets()

Dim ws As Worksheet

Application.DisplayAlerts = False

For Each ws In Worksheets
If ws.Name <> "control sheet" Or ws.Name <> "IDs" Then ws.Delete
Next ws

Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub

unfortunately, apart from a chart sheet (which i actually want deleted) this code deletes all sheets including the 2 i don't want deleted

Deleting All Chart Sheets Only

Jun 30, 2006

Iím would like to delete some sheets in my workbook using a macro. The problem is that
I wonít know in advance the name of these sheets.

I was thinking using a code like the following one to delete the sheets but the problem is that Excel expect a sheet name at this part of the code since it is expecting the sheet name.

Sub Delete_Active_Diagram()
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Dim i As Integer
Dim strSheetName As String
Dim blnFound As Boolean

strSheetName = "Average Sales Per Week" & "" & Sheets(i + 1).Range("C3")
i = Sheets.Count

For j = 1 To i
If Sheets(j).Name = strSheetName Then

blnFound = True
Exit For
End If
Next
If blnFound = False Then Exit Sub
If blnFound = True Then strSheetName.Delete
End Sub

Is there a way to cope this problem, or should i think about another way to do it. Like selecting each sheet I would like to delete and then delete the selected sheets.

By the way. All the sheets I try to delete a Charts Sheets. Maybe there is a way to delete all the charts in my workbook.

Deleting Sheets Based On A Range

Nov 13, 2013

I'm pretty new to coding from scratch in VB, and I've got some code that should loop, but it doesn't. The idea eventually will be to download a spreadsheet, make a new sheet for every item in a range, and then filter for each of those items and put it in the right sheet. I have to code to create the sheets (lightly modified from something I got here)

Sub CreateSheets()
'Written by Barrie Davidson
For Each c In Sheets("FilterList").Range("b2:b74")
Sheets.Add
ActiveSheet.Name = Right(c.Value, 30)
Next c
End Sub

That's working well, so I've tried to modify it so that it will also delete sheets based on the same range. I've gotten it to delete the first item in the range, but then it stops.

For Each c In Sheets("FilterList").Range("b2:b74")
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Worksheets(c.Value).Delete
ActiveSheet.Name = Right(c.Value, 30)
Next c
End Sub

By the way, I don't know what the ActiveSheet.Name = Right(c.Value, 30) line does, but I put it in since it was in the code I was modifying.

Deleting Sheets Without Knowing The Names

Jan 19, 2009

Is it possible for a macro to delete any sheet that within a workbook that does not match a specific list of sheets. For example a workbook will always have Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4... but it can have many other sheets added to it. The names of the sheets can be completely different however the sheets that I want to keep will always have the same name.

Selecting And Deleting Array Sheets Macro

Jun 15, 2012

Here is my macro

MyFileName = Sheets("Macros").Range("B1").Value
MyFileNameTwo = Sheets("Macros").Range("B2").Value
Sheets("Blank").Select
Sheets.Add After:=Sheets("Blank")

[Code] .........

Issue with array that's bolded The way it is set up is to rename the 3rd sheet to MyFileName and rename the last sheet to MyFileNameTwo. The file names will remain constant. They will always be the 3rd and last sheets, but the number in between will vary. Is there anyway to select the 3rd sheet through the last sheet to delete these? When I use the array it wants sheet names but those are based on multiple variables in other workbooks.

Deleting Drill-down Sheets With Pivot Tables

Jul 11, 2006

I've just set up a workbook full of pivot tables linked to an access database. The book will be used by several individuals interested in both the statistics presented in the tables and in the details underlying them. My concern is the accumulation of the extraneous sheets generated by drilling down to details. Is there any code I could use that would delete these sheets as soon as the user leaves them?

Prevent Formula From Updating When Deleting Cells / Sheets

Nov 5, 2008

I've got a workbook that I'm currently designing and I've just realised that I need to delete a few sheets, paste in some new template sheets and rename them. The problem is, I've already completed my summary sheets and I don't want to have to redo the values. Essentially, I just want to (temporarily) turn off auto-updating of formulas when cells / sheets are changed/moved/deleted.

For practical purposes: I need to delete the sheet named "Jan", paste in a new sheet "MonthTemp", rename "MonthTemp" to "Jan" and have all my formulas not updated (e.g. still referencing "Jan" instead of "#REF!")

Select All Sheets Except First

Sep 15, 2006

Is there any way to select the last Worksheet, other than clicking on the
Last Tab?

Because i created a macro which inserts more sheets after the Last Sheet,
but that Last Sheet is named (lets call it LS), so everytime the macro runs
it inserts new sheets after the LS sheet, rather than the 'real' last sheets.

Select Record From Different Sheets

Oct 7, 2009

In a worksheet, I have a listing of people. In a different sheet, I have a list of trips. I want to be able to select a person (a right-click, function), then move to the other sheet, find the desired trip and, double-clicking, select that trip to be associated with the selected person. Those two data elements would be written to another sheet. I can select the person and switch to my listing of trips. I can double-click on the desired trip. But I can't figure out how to join the two and write the data.

Select All Sheets Then Delete

Apr 29, 2009

I've been trying to work out a macro that will select all sheets in a workbook, except the first sheet (called Summary), then delete them.

This is what I've got:

Sub SelectAllSheets()
Dim mySheet As Object
For Each mySheet In Sheets
With mySheet
If .Visible = True Then .Select Replace:=False
End With
Next mySheet
End Sub

What do I need to add to it to ensure it doesn't select the first sheet (called Summary) and then delete all the others?

Loop To Select Different Sheets

May 2, 2006

I've put the following code together;

Sub RemoveStars()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
Cells.Replace What:=" *** ", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
Sheets("Sheet2").Select
Cells.Replace What:=" *** ", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
Sheets("Summary").Select
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub

There are more sheets that this is run on, but I am sure you get the idea. I guess that this can be done using a loop, I would prefer to code the sheet names in, there are 5 in total.
