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 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 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 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 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.
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"
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
Why do I get the error: "Runtime error 1004: Cannot rename a sheet to the same name as another sheet, a reference object library, or a workbook referenced by Visual Basic"?
And how do I fix it? I have a macros that someone else made (thank you) and I need to make the macros create anywhere from 5-125 sheets based on the information added in sheet 1. How can I do this whe it stops me after 5 or so with the error above.
I have about 100 products and each has its own sheet that I fill with data. Once I have finished with a sheet I rename it and create a copy and then hide the original and delete the entered data from before and start over.
Is there a way I can make it so when I hide a sheet it will automatically create a copy and delete a specific range?
how to create a copy of my employee attendance template. Is there a way to create a copy of the template by entering an employee name in the "name" cell of the template and it automatically renames the sheet that employee name and also saves or recopies the template for use with the next employee?
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".
What I'm looking to do is copy sheet named January, and paste into a new sheet naming it February, then in February copy and paste into another new sheet naming it March and so (but keeping previous months). My thinking was a pop up to name the sheet to copy then another to name the sheet that it's pasted in.
Possible to look up a value from one excel sheet in another sheet and then return multiple values in the first sheet
For example the following is a sample of sheet 1
NSV Code Item
And the following a sample of sheet 2 :
Nsvcode Item Division Speciality Qty
12 OLANZAPINE CLINICAL CS 10
I want to lookUp the NSVCode from sheet 1 in sheet 2 and return the speciality and qty values in sheet 1 as sheet 2 contains a lot of info I do not require and sheet one also contains various pricing calculations I also require.
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 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.
I first insert a new sheet and then i want something (inputbox or so) where i can give in the new name of that sheet (i have to do that a lot of times, so i wont do it manually) is there any solution for this thing??
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 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:
For renaming the worksheets I have tinkered with:
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.
I am trying to use ActiveSheet.Name formula to rename the active sheet. It is only working part of the time and I can't figure out why. I do know, however, when it is going to work and when it is not going to work. If cell A2 contains two words, it does not work. If cell A2 contains only one word, it does work. Here is the code. The highlighted part in blue is the code that names the sheet. I have attached sample spreadsheet if needed.
I am using the following VBA to auto-name sheets in my workbook based upon what's in cell A2. However, in cell A2 I have the following formula: =B2&" - F&V Expenses". 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 If Err.Number 0 Then MsgBox "Error in Renaming" End If On Error Goto 0 End If End Sub
I have a template sheet which i want to copy in to same workbook but want it to be renamed using a name which i fill in on a seperate sheet "articles". But I only want the template copied with the new name every time i fill in a new name in the sheet "articles". Also this procedure may not overwrite existing sheets.
So there is not a predipefined table in articles but rather it grows each time I need a new copy of template.
Is it possible to copy sheet and rename the copied sheet in one operation .... have a hidden worksheet that needs to be copied and given a variable name dependent on the work sheets that are already present.
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?
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)…
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
Sub RenFile() Dim arrFiles As Variant Dim intCounter As Integer Dim datFile As Date Dim strFile As String, strPath As String strPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path arrFiles = FileArray(strPath, "*.txt") For intCounter = 1 To UBound(arrFiles) strFile = arrFiles(intCounter) Name strPath & strFile As strPath & intCounter & ".txt" Next intCounter End Sub
Private Function FileArray(strPath As String, strPattern As String) Dim arrDatabase() Dim intCounter As Integer.............................
I need to copy 120 columns from one sheet to a new. The columns needs to be in a certain order. So I need fx. from the original sheet column 2 is called "number" and I need that column to be put in new sheet as column 1 with new headline "no." Guess I need almost the same code for all of the just with different names etc.
I also need to put in blank columns with specific headlines in between some columns - so fx. in column 4 I need a blank column with headline "search"..
*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)
