Macro - Rename Only & Sheet... & Tabs With Last 8 Characters From Cell
Nov 5, 2009
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.
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$4").Value End If Next End Sub
I have also tried:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Address = "$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?
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).
I am looking for a macro to rename tabs based on information in A1 on each tab. The thing that is causing me issues is the cell A1 has a formula in it and it changes on a daily basis with days of the week but the tab only updates when i double click A1 and press enter.
I am currently doing an excel database of students application. I want a macro that creates a duplicate of a template sheet and renaming it based on the name of the student. Meaning once a name appears in the name cell, a sheet of that particular name is automatically created. At the same time, i want all the data regarding the applying student to appear the newly created sheet as shown in the attached file.
I'm trying to create a copy of the active sheet and then rename the new copied sheet to what's in cell O4, which is a formula (see below) and then paste value cell O4 in B3 of the copied sheet. However, when I run this macro it doesn't seem to like the second line where I am renaming the sheet (run time error '1004').
ActiveSheet.Copy Before:=Sheets(Sheets.Count) ActiveSheet.Name = Range("O4").Value ActiveSheet.Range("O4").Copy ActiveSheet.Range("B3").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues End Sub
I run a report each month which renames the tab name called ex. "xxxxx Report 8". The 8 meaning for the month of August. I have created a macro to rename the tab, but each month when i generate the report the tab name change, hence i would have to change my macro again to reflect the tab name. What formula could i use in VBA to change the name of tab so i would not have to change my macro each month?
I currently use as shown below, which does not work since the number changes each month when i generate the report):
I have a workbook that pulls in data from other sources and contains 15 linked sheets. The data changes when different criteria is selected in the first sheet. The first 2 sheets are summary sheets and the tabs are named correctly.
I would like to be able to rename the remaining 13 tabs using labels found in the cells in the first sheet. These tabs should update or change when the first sheet is manually recalculated (F9).
I have used ActiveSheet.Name=Range("A1") but it doesn't apply in this case. Is there a macro that could run with something like Sheet1.Name=Range("A1"), Sheet2.Name=Range("A2"), Sheet3.Name=Range("A3"), etc.... or maybe something in each sheet that would change the name of the tab to a specific name off sheet 1 when the whole workbook is recalculated?
Could you help with an onerous task that I must complete every Quarter.
I have a spreadsheet with multiple tabs.
The first 3 Tabs are Calculation sheets and do not need to be re-named.
All the preceeding sheets each need to be renamed to the days of the month (British Format), skiping Sundays.
i.e Tab 4 should be renamed 010409, Tab 5 should be renamed 020409, Tab 6 should be renamed 030409, Tab 7 should be renamed 040409, Tab 8 should be renamed 060409 and Tab 9 should be renamed 070409 etc etc ...
Extra - Also if possible on each sheet could the Tab date be placed into Cell A4 (eg. 010409) and also the Day number (eg. 01) (Starting from 01 on 010409, 02 on 020409, 03 on 030409, 04 on 040409, 05 on 060409, 06 on 070409 etc etc ...) into Cell A6.
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 ....
*Inserts an existing worksheet template and places it at the end (or after all) the existing worksheets.
What I would like the macro to also do is:
*Automatically rename the inserted worksheet (via my worksheet template) in sequence to the existing worksheets
Example: So let's say I have 3 existing worksheets titled Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3 (that's basically the default naming Excel uses). But would when I insert a new worksheet (via my worksheet template) it is shown as Sheet. And if I insert another one, it would be Sheet (2). So basically it is showing as such:
Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet, Sheet (2)
What I would like the macro to do is automatically rename those last 2 worksheets (and any subsequent worksheets thereafter) in sequential order. Basically displaying it as such:
Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4, Sheet5...(and so on and so forth)
EXAMPLE: Complete Sheet called "Day1". When day1 is complete you click on button and it then copies itself and creates and renames new sheet to "Day2", then when "Day2" is complete you click on button and it then copies itself and creates and renames new sheet to "Day3", and so on and so forth to "Day30".
There is a folder in a shared location which many people use at work. Within this folder, I have an excel document with all current stock (called "Current Stock"). There will never be more than 20 items in current stock. There is also other documents within this folder which relate to lots of other things, Interest, Deals etc.
What I want to do is every time a new item is added to the "Current Stock" document, a tab is created with that Item name within all the other documents.
I receive a workbook each day with approx 500 tabs of call data and I would like to relabel all the tabs with the user names. The user names are in a merged range "A7:M7". I'm having difficulty getting the following script to rename the sheets. Currently the values in "A7:M7" look like "User: ADAM ENGEMANN-558".
I am trying to delete each occurrence of "User: " while naming the sheets as well as removing the merged range before doing so that the names are in A7 only. The sheet names should look like "ADAM ENGEMANN-558", or, ideally just "ADAM ENGEMANN". For some reason my code will not modify the cells. (See attached example)
This works if I manually unmerge the cells before running and remove the ":".
VB: Sub RenameSheets2() Dim ws As Worksheet
For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets If ws.Range("A7").Value <> "" Then
This his how I modified it but it doesn't work on the supplied sheets. Please note that if I manually insert some blank sheets into my workbook and merge the cells etc it does work. There seems to be something odd going on with the sheets they are giving me. (they aren't protected)
VB: Sub RenameSheets2() Dim ws As Worksheet
For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets If ws.Range("A7").Value <> "" Then
I tried adding the following to remove the merged ranges and remove 'User: ' from the names Range("A7:M7").Select With Selection .WrapText = False .MergeCells = False
I am having trouble creating a macro that renames all excel sheets using cells on Sheet1.
See attached, I want to rename all excel sheets (renamed as "1", "2", "3"....."50") as "9999", "10000", "10001"..."10045", found in Sheet1, renamed as "Base". I will change the cell values everyday (range Base!A5 to Base!50) - and will rename all the sheets again.
I have a master sheet where users can change the name of 20 different sheets in the workbook by changing a cell value on the master sheet. Here is the code:
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rCell As Range If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
The next step which I am having issues with is hiding the sheets. I want all sheets in the workbook to be hidden except for the master. I only want the other sheets to be visble if the user inputs a name on the master sheet.
So if the cell contents on the master sheet, say "B9", is blank, the sheet in the workbook that corresponds to that cell will remain hidden. If the user inputs anything, say "Sheet1", in cell "B9" on the master sheet, I want that sheet to become unhidden and to be named "Sheet1"
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?
Can a macro rename Excel files based on a cell's contents? The problem maybe that I download these files en masse from a website and they all have 54-character long randomly generated filenames which I can rename by selecting all and then use the rename function to get a series of filenames like a, a(2), a(3), ... but I would rather have the files renamed based on the text that exists in cell B1 which is the title of the report. I also read somewhere that this kind of macro only works if the tabs have names like "Sheet 1"
Tabs 1, 2 and 3 have a column of data (Column A) on each sheet. They all start from the same cell. Each cell of data are just numbers. The column (an array) of data will not have blanks between.
But, they are not the same number of data. They vary.
Meaning, Tab 1 may have 15 numbers (A1 to A15), Tab 2 may have 20 numbers (A1 to A20) and Tab 3 could have 5 numbers (A1 to A5). Each iteration of the workbook may have different number of data in the A column on these tabs.
Now on Tab 4, I want combine the data from all three tabs into one column (in column A).
So, Tab 4 has a column A with data from Tab 1 copy and pasted to (A1 to A15) as values, then (A16 to A35) have Tab 2 data copy pasted as values and (A36 to A40) have Tab 3 data copy pasted as values.
Basically, the macro on Tab 4 has to count the number of rows on each Tab that are populated with data values and figure out to copy all the data on Column A from each three tabs and paste the data value into the Tab 4 in one column of data (in values).
