Rename 500 Sheets Based On Modified Cell Value On Each Sheet
Jul 31, 2013
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 ":".
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)
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
.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 have 20 sheets in the workbook. 10 sheets are named YR1, YR2, etc. Once the user enters information on sheet "Assumptions" - names are setup and linked onto each YR page. So user enters CY10, which links to cell C5 on YR1 to show CY10.
I would like a macro that renames just the YR1, YR2, ....sheets, to CY10, CY11, .... I do not want any of the other sheets to change names.
Say you have a userform with 10 TextBoxes, let’s call them TxtN1…TxtN10 and your workbook has 10 sheets, say “Sheet1”…”Sheet10”. Now if one wants to code a procedure to rename those worksheets when the user hits a command button it’s simple enough.
Sub Rename_click() For i = 1 To 10 With Sheets(“Sheet” & i ) . name = TxtN & i End With Next i End Sub
But now if the user then changes the textboxes TxtN1…TxtN10 to a set of new strings it’s obvious that the following coding segment will not work:
For i = 1 To 10 With Sheets(TxtN & i) .name = TxtN & i End With Next i
It goes without saying that the program will try to select the worksheets with the new name (and they obviously don’t exist yet)…
I have a spreadsheet that I enter daily totals into. The sheet is named by date. I take totals from a number of catagories from the prior day's sheet (ending totals) and enter them on the current sheet (beginning totals), then enter the current day's totals to wind up with new ending totals.
I want to generate a new sheet in the same workbook based on the date of the prior sheet, copy my formatting, and copy the data from the old ending sheet totals to the new sheet beginning totals.
1) Copies Sheet2 for each name on the list. Sheet1 has the list of names (cells A5:A10)
2) Renames each sheet with the next name on the list
3) In each of the copied sheets in cell A2=newsheetname
Sub Copy_Sheets() Dim i As Integer Dim wks As Worksheet Set wks = Sheets("Sheet1") For i = 5 To 10
This works like a charm for this particular list. The thing is, I want to take this macro and apply it to a variable list. In one instance the list may be in cells A5:A10, and in another instance it may be in cells A5:A100. How can I update my macro so it looks for the next name in the list and stops when there is no longer a name.
I am working with a workbook that has data automatically entered each time a new child is enrolled to the program. The child's data is automatically entered to the sheet named "Intake". What I need to do now is rename that sheet using the child's name as the sheet name, but also keep the sheet named "Intake" for the next entry. I would then like to sort the sheets alphabetically but leaving the "Intake" sheet either as the first sheet or the last sheet. I have attached an example of the workbook I am working with.
I'd like to split up the rows in a worksheet based on the values in one of the columns. Also, I'd like the sheets to be named after the values in the column. I have attached example excel sheets to explain this better. I think the vlookup and Sheets.Add and ActiveSheet.Name formulas can be used but I'm not quite sure how to put them together. The actual data has about 20 columns and about 500 rows.
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've been working on a macro that makes copies of a template sheet based on a table in my Opps sheet. If column B isn't empty, make a copy of the template sheet, rename it to Opps column A, and then hyperlink column A's current A.row to the newly copied and renamed sheet.
I'm not sure what is wrong exactly, it keeps making duplicate Template(x) and stops renaming them, and the hyperlinks are not working. -This is my first go at VBA hyperlinks to internal workbook sheets
I am having trouble getting the selection of sheets to work. I have a workbook that has multiple sheets and one constant sheet (Summary). There is code to create new forms in this workbook and insert them after the Summary sheet. These forms all have a date input that is formatted as a date (mm/dd/yyyy), these dates get modified on the day the form is created, there may be any number of sheets created during this process. I have to print the summary sheet and only the newest forms created. I need a code to select sheets to print based on the date input of a user for each form. This is what I have so far:
VB: Dim i As Variant i = Range("B5").Value >= InputBox("What date to start PDF from? Format = mm/dd/yyyy") Sheets(Array("i")).Select [code]....
If the dim can be taken out and just included in the line for the array that would be fine with me. The cell "B5" is where the date is located in each form. I want to input a date and the macro will select the sheets where the date is equal to and greater than the date entered. The Summary sheet will always be included in the print set. I have a dialog box for setting which printer to use - this file will be used at different offices and therefor the printers will be different and it will also allow to create a PDF if desired.
I am trying to create a formula which will allow me to type a word in a cell on the Main sheet, and then pull any row from multiple sheets and display them on the Main sheet. For example, my sheet named Main looks like this:
A B C D E 1 Query: 2 Fruit Store Cost Mode Date
And there's a sheet for each month with the same format and different data: A B C D E 1 Fruit Store Cost Mode Date 2 Apple Dominicks 1.99 Bagged 3/16/2014 3 Apple Piggly Wiggly 2.19 Ala Carte 3/14/2014 4 Banana Jewel 0.49 Bagged 3/1/2014 5 Banana Dominicks 0.57 Ala Carte 3/16/2014 6 Banana Costco 0.69 Ala Carte 3/16/2014 7 Cantaloupe Jewel 2.99 Ala Carte 3/14/2014 8 Cantaloupe Dominicks 1.99 Ala Carte 3/1/2014 9 Eggplant Jewel 0.99 Ala Carte 3/30/2014 10 Eggplant Dominicks 1.19 Ala Carte 3/30/2014 11 Eggplant Costco 1.29 Ala Carte 3/21/2014 12 Eggplant Safeway 0.79 Ala Carte 3/16/2014 13 Pears Jewel 1.19 Ala Carte 3/14/2014 14 Pears Dominicks 1.59 Bagged 3/1/2014 15 Pears Piggly Wiggly 0.99 Ala Carte 3/30/2014 16 Rhubarb Jewel 0.99 Ala Carte 3/14/2014 17 Rhubarb Piggly Wiggly 0.59 Ala Carte 3/14/2014 18 Rhubarb Costco 0.89 Ala Carte 3/14/2014 19 Tomatoes Jewel 1.99 Ala Carte 3/1/2014 20 Tomatoes Safeway 1.69 Bagged 3/30/2014 21 Tomatoes Dominicks 1.89 Carton 3/27/2014
... and so on. On my main sheet in Cell B1, I want to type a fruit name, such as Banana, and have every row in every sheet with Banana in column A,pulled and displayed on the Main sheet. Firstly, is this even possible with a macro?
Currently I have it setup to copy rows to a sheet "Report" based on a single cell value. But now I need the same thing but have it copy the rows based on 2 cells values to sheet "Report". So for example I wanted to copy and paste each row in my workbook that contain values in Columns N:N that contain the value "Test" and in columns AB:AB that contain "1".
Sub copyagain() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Dim sh As Worksheet, findThis As String, fAdr As String, fLoc As Range findThis = "1"
This compares cells in every sheet to a master sheet "AllUnits" and deletes all the matched rows on the Master. I modified it slightly to also delete the matched row on the source sheet as well (looking for rows that are not matched on any sheet). This works to a point, but I have to re-run it many times since when the source row is deleted, the code actually skips to the next row. I tried to reset the source variable with
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 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.
What I'm trying to do is from a template worksheet that I have in a workbook with other worksheets, I'm trying to come up with code that will create a new worksheet based on the template (copy), increment the invoice number, and rename the worksheet tab to be "Invoice # xxxx" (new invoice number from prev. step.).
I have figured out how to use a button on the template to execute, but as I said my VBA skills are lacking to say the least.
