Hyperlink Code For Sheet Names With Spaces Or Dashes

I believe I have 99% of what I need. The code below has one bug. (See just the underlined text for a very quick overview. The rest is detail.)

My goal is to generate a TOC that:
1) has the VBA run from my Personal Workbook.
2) can be run in any worksheet of any open workbook.
3) can be run in a worksheet of any name.
4) will insert itself at the currently active cell.
5) has entries hyperlinking to the referenced worksheets - of any name.

Right now, I'm stuck with the last point. The macro below will generate the TOC at the currently active cell. The TOC will be hyperlinks to the referenced worksheets.

However, if the referenced worksheet contains a space, dash, or other special character then the generated hyperlink is broken. For example, if the referenced worksheet is "sheet1" then the hyperlink generated works just fine. However, if the referenced worksheet is "sheet-1" then the generated hyperlink doesn't work.

Sub IndexList()
Dim objSheet As Object
Dim intRow As Integer
Dim strCol As Integer

Set objSheet = Excel.Sheets
intRow = ActiveCell.Row 'Start writing in active row
strCol = ActiveCell.Column 'Start writing in active column

For Each objSheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
Cells(intRow, strCol).Select
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="", SubAddress:= _
objSheet.Name & "!A1", TextToDisplay:=objSheet.Name
intRow = intRow + 1
End Sub

Sheet Names With Spaces In VBA
I have been using the code below for a form. But now I need to change the sheet name to have spaces. But when I do. I comes up with the Run Time 1004 error on the “Ctrl.Text = Range(Ctrl.Tag).Text '*** “ line.

Why is it that this line is not allowing me to have spaces?

Private Sub Load_Controls()
Dim Ctrl As Control
For Each Ctrl In UserForm1.Controls
If Ctrl.Tag "" Then
Ctrl.Text = Range(Ctrl.Tag).Text '***
End If
Next Ctrl

Newly Created Tab Names Placed As Hyperlink On Content Sheet
I attach an example worksheet with the code I have thus far.

In my workbook I have other sheets, one of which changes and updates a specific one each time a new client's data is entered on said other sheet. Because I want to save the specific client's data and not lose it when another client's stuff is entered on this other sheet, I copy the sheet where the data is summarised (I called this sheet "Sheet to Copy From") to a newly inserted sheet and use Paste Special, Values Only to change all functions /f ormulae / Links ect to values.

I then change the name of the sheet to the name of the client.

I then use this sheet name / cell value to polulate a range on another sheet (Next Empty Cell) as a Hyperlink to the newly created sheet above. This sheet I called "Table of Contents".

how to code the hyperlink. Using Macro Recorder uses the specific case's names, but the Tab name to be used as Hyperlink value will always be the name of a new client,

Referencing Sheet Code Names By Variable
I have a set of worksheets (Sheet31 through Sheet49 by codename) produced by a machine in the lab. I want to create a summary sheet that references cells in those worksheets.

Rather than go through the annoyance of doing this manually 40+ times I'm working on creating a macro to populate the summary sheet for me.

This is what I have so far

For J = 31 To 49
ResultSht = SheetJ.Name
ActiveSheet.Range("A4").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).Select

It hangs up on the "SheetJ.Name" however. My objective is to be using the object SheetJ, where the object SheetJ is the codename of the results sheet I'm trying to reference (for example, in the first pass through the loop it would be Sheet31). Could someone point out my mistake in this object reference?

VBA Code For Listing The Sheet Names Of Deleted Sheets
I have a workbook with 20+ sheets in it, I add sheets and delete sheets on a daily basis, except for one sheet that is like my summary sheet.

Is there a code, formula, or magic spell that will list the names of the sheets that I have deleted? For instance, if my workbook has 50 sheets and I delete 49 of them, I want to see cells A1 thru A49 (or where ever I wish to place them) filled with the names of the sheets I just deleted.

Create Array Of File Names/sheet Names
Two part question:

1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?

2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).

Code To Remove Extra Spaces From Data.
I have a macro which opens one excel file, then copies the data into another, dead easy. However the first file is 'downloaded' from a bespoke package, where (for whatever reason) the package appends a number of spaces (" ") after data in one of the columns,

So sometimes the data will contain one, ten or more extra spaces (no telling how many) ie, it could look like "AB ", "AB ", or "AB " etc

Ideally What i need is a small bit of code that once the data has been imported to my sheet it can run and 'strip' extra spaces from the column, lets say column f, to leave all the data in this column to look like:


I am drawing a blank, any simple lines of code?

Put Hyperlink Code In This Button Code
Sub Increment()

Lr = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
If IsNumeric(Cells(Lr, "A")) Then
Cells(Lr + 1, "A").Value = Cells(Lr, "A").Value + 1
End If
End Sub

This adds 1 to the previous cell and displays in the next available cell.

How could I make it sao that when this number enters in the cell it hyperlinks automatically to the master file?

Before this button was introduced I used this:

Dim hl As Hyperlink

For Each hl In Me.Hyperlinks
If Wb.FullName = hl.Address Then

Return Cells That Have Exactly 3 Dashes
I have a column of data (column A) with cells that have IDs (alpha-numeric) that contain anywhere between 0 to 5 dashes. Since this column will change weekly, I want to dynamically pull only those cells that contain 3 dashes.


I would only want to have returned 10648145-3026718-t526363536m since it contains 3 dashes. Do you know of a nifty formula for doing this? I think an array would get me the dynamic piece (so they are not spaced out).

Open Hyperlink In Cell With Macro Code
how to open a Hyperlink directly. I have writen some code which allows me to copy over certain cells from a large list of hyperlinked files. However I am struggling to figure out how to open the hyperlink without actually writing the hyperlink address into the code. The hyperlinks are the file names and not the file paths. In essence I'm aiming to just get the macro to "click" the hyperlink to open it. Once the file is open the rest of my code will work, it is just this one sticking point.

Hyperlink To Sheet

Each is completely independent of all the others and each shows the subject codes for that grade in that semester.

what I would like to do is ..

if I click on (let's say ) box 3, and choose the 4th subject code down the box, I would like to be 'teleported' to sheet that bears that same subject code.

Is this possible, and is it a problem that the other 5 combo boxes will still have a subject code in their display window from previous viewings ?

Parse Worksheet Names Directly In Code
I am trying to add new worksheets at the end of the existing ones, with the name "Scenario " & i (i being an integer for the next scenario).

My idea is to parse the Worksheet names, counting how many times the string "Scenario " appears, and then add a new Worksheet with that name and index i+1. Here is the

Public Sub store_data_Click()

Dim NameWS, prev_sheet As String
Dim iprev, iws, iscenario As Integer

iscenario = 1
For iws = 1 To Worksheets.Count
If Find(Sheets(iws).Name, "Scenario ") = True Then
iscenario = iscenario + 1
End If

1.- Find (8th line) does not seem to be the right procedure to use; how could I do this in a clean/direct (i.e. not writing the names into a dummy worksheet and using the find function) way?

2.- How could I substitute the new Worksheet ("Scenario " & i) formulas for values without having to select all the cells and then use paste values (not so elegant).

3.- Connecting to a previous post: How could I define *exactly* the position to paste "Autoshape 1"?

"Smith, Bob" is a sheet name, so the macro would make the new sheet name "Smith, Bob 2"

Alternatively, how could I give a pop-up telling about the error and deleting the current sheet instead of renaming it with a "2"?


"Sorry, 'Smith, Bob' already exists. Deleting new sheet." as a popup and have it delete the current sheet.

Variable Sheet Names In VBA
Running Windows CP; Excel 2003

The Board looks full of some interesting issues today.

I'm working on a workbook that hides and unhides a lot of columns depending on the month the user has selected. No problems here.

The sheets are named regionally, ie National 2008, California 2008 etc. The user is able to select the month and the year from separate combo boxes.

So when 2009 comes around I will need to rewrite many lines of code to point the VBA to the new worksheet names like National 2009, California 2009. My question is, is there a way to reference either variable worksheet names in the VBA or some other manner in which to write the code so I don't need to rewrite every year change?

I currently reference the sheets something like Sheets ("National 2008").Range("H:H").EntireColumn.Hidden=True
