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.

Code:

Sheets(Array("Sheet 1", "Sheet 2")).Visible = False

Deleting All Names Quickly?

Dec 1, 2011

Any quick way of deleting all named ranges within a given workbook? I can loop over them, but it takes forever. (I've got about 20,000 names in total).

Turning the normal things off doesn't do much good either (e.g. auto-calculating, events, etc)

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 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.

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.

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?

Naming New Tab Without Knowing Its Name

Feb 16, 2012

Is there a way to name a new tab without knowing its name. For instance, when I create a new tab, it could be named "Sheet2" or "Sheet3", but there is sometimes no way to know. Is there a way to edit the name of that new tab without refering to it by name?

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!")

Reference Workbook Without Knowing Name

Jun 26, 2007

I have a master workbook, meeting1.xls which is used on a daily basis. All of the macros saved in this workbook naturally refer to Windows("Meeting1.xls").Activate.

However, I want to be able to open Meeting1.xls save it as a new name (for today's details) and then populate it.....as well as have the Macros pick up that new file name (rather than always looking for Meeting1.xls.)

I've tried saving Meeting1 as a template file and that didn't seem to work either. When I save it as a new name, the macro always searches for the original name.

Macro Knowing Currently Opened Sheet

Mar 19, 2007

below you will see my macro. I have a slight problem, everything works perfect, except when I change file names. Basically I keep an electronic backup every day of the file I create. So today's file will be named DOH031907, tomorrow DOH032007, Wednesday DOH 032107, etc. etc. I use the same sheet, including the same Macro every day so it does the same thing. Basically everywhere you see "DOH031907Test.xls" I want it to put the current workbook file name there. I'm new to this kind of stuff but it seems like there is an easy solution.

Sub DOHComplete()
'
' DOHComplete Macro
'
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+T
'
ChDir "K:PICDailyMetrics"
Workbooks.Open Filename:="K:PICDailyMetricsGMDEMAND2.XLS"
Windows("DOH031907Test.xls").Activate
Sheets("EDI Demand").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Delete
Windows("GMDEMAND2.XLS").Activate
Sheets("EDI Demand").Select
Sheets("EDI Demand").Copy Before:=Workbooks("DOH031907Test.xls").Sheets(3)

Add Sheets With Names From Table

Nov 21, 2006

On sheet1 of my workbook I have a table containing the colums : Title, Name, Street+nr, postal code + city of some people, Telephone, email.

I would like to do the following (by clicking a button perhaps?)

- For all the records in my table on sheet1 I would like to insert a new sheet in my workbook named to their names (as in sheet1).

- The new sheet must be an existing sheet that I've already made the content (a kind of expence sheet)

- Somewhere on the top of the sheet I would like to have their names , titles en addresses (fetched from sheet1)
