Rename Sheet Using Multiple Cell Values

Sep 23, 2008

The macro below renames the current sheet to the cell value of D4:


Sub Rename_Sheet()
With ActiveSheet
.Name = Range("D4")
End With
End Sub
What can i do to the code above so that it will rename the sheet based on 3 cell values instead on only 1 value?

I want the end result to look like this with x's between the values:

D4xD5xD6

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 ":".

VB:
Sub RenameSheets2()
Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If ws.Range("A7").Value <> "" Then

[Code] .....

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

[Code] ......

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.

Rename Sheet And Hide / Unhide Based On Cell Contents?

Feb 10, 2014

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

[Code]....

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"

Macro To Rename Sheet Tab

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):

Sheets("xxxxx Report 8").Select
Sheets("xxxxx Report 8").Name = "Monthly Report"

Rename Multiple Tabs ...

Apr 4, 2009

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.

Rename Sheet While Copying To New Workbook

Jun 12, 2014

I have an electronic meter (Fluke AirCheck) that provides me with reports in the form of excel documents. I need to combine those documents and have a page/worksheet that contains a legend and some notes etc. for reporting to management.

Given:
I have a folder with nearly identical workbooks. All contain 4 worksheets:
Document map
Sheet2
Sheet3
Sheet4

Goal:
1. Copy and combine, either specific sheet(s) or all the sheets from multiple workbooks into a new workbook (with prompting)
2. Rename the worksheets as the workbook file names and existing worksheet names combined.

Example:
Workbook name is "101B.xls"
Worksheet 1 would be = "101B - Document Map"
Worksheet 2 would be = "101B - Sheet2"
Worksheet 3 would be= "101B - Sheet3"
Worksheet 4 would be= "101B - Sheet4"

Results thus far:
Okay so I managed to find a script that does most of what I need:

[Code] .....

For renaming the worksheets I have tinkered with:

[Code] .....

But alas none of that works. I can also only copy 1 sheet at a time currently.

Another issue which seems to have reared its ugly head in the copy and paste function as the text on my new worksheets is white on white when the originals are black text on white. I can select the new worksheet and select all cells and hit "Automatic" on text and it fixes it but that's a pain on 100+ worksheets. So I need some sort of copy /paste special command, I think to make that work too.

Excel Sheet Auto Rename

My problem is that I want the sheet to be renamed when I change what's entered into cell B2 and not necessarily what's in cell A2. Is there something I can do to my current VBA that would have it realize that the value in cell A2 really did change because I updated cell B2?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A2")) Is Nothing Then
On Error Resume Next
Me.Name = Range("A2").Value

Automatically Rename Sheet Tabs

Nov 3, 2009

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?

Rename Sheets Based On TextBox Values

Aug 24, 2006

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)…

Rename Multiple Text Files

Nov 18, 2006

In a folder I have several text files (each text file is a customer statement)
I get the files from the computer dept named randomly, I need to rename each
File to its customer ID number, each ID consists of 15 characters (including the dash characters) and is found on the 3rd row of the file (3rd row , skip one character And count 15 characters ex : 0010-902514-422)

I found a code that renames the text files incrementally (1,2,3…..). I need to modify the code so that instead of renaming the files that way I rename them by their ID number (get the ID of each file while looping then rename It by that ID)
One more thing, can I get the ID then skip 44 characters and attach the following 14 characters to the ID (ex : 0010-902514-422- Lebanese Pound). ttached is a folder containing an excel file with the code and 2 statements

Dim intCounter As Integer
Dim datFile As Date
Dim strFile As String, strPath As String
strPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path
arrFiles = FileArray(strPath, "*.txt")

Macro - Using Sheet Template Need It To Auto-Rename

Aug 2, 2008

*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)
