Renaming Tabs On The WorkSheets
I mean renaming tabs on the sheets, the tabs at the moment are called Output 1 (*****) instead of Sheet 1 etc.. and i would like that changed to contents in cell A9. If possible only the Output 1 will be removed and it will change to something similar "X-Ray (5E4TT)"
i have a workbook with worksheets named Output 1 (*****)
(the stars being a five digit/letter code - the only thing that changes on the workbook)
now the problem is, i pull of reports and sometimes worksheets can be up to one hundred.. now in cell a9 is the name of the report. I have found vba code to rename sheets to cell contents **extract below**
but any chance of renaming contents of cell a9 to a worksheet named Output 1 (*****) etc.. and if the contents of cell a9 can be trimmed so only certain part of a lengthy title
For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
If Worksheets(i).Range("A1").Value <> "" Then
Sheets(i).Name = Worksheets(i).Range("A1").Value
Adding And Renaming Worksheets Using VBE
I've undertaken a project for work with my very very limited knowledge of Excel VB.
What I am trying to do is automate the process of creating a new worksheet in a "Master" Workbook, rename and save that worksheet with the date it was created.
Each worksheet will hold a list of dates for staff members who have attended or attempted courses for that week and the information will come in via email in separate pre-created worksheet templates. The consolidated weekly data will ultimately end up in an MS Access db (but needs to be sorted and validated before upload).
Here is the code I have so far:
Private Sub AddSheets()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Worksheets.Visible = True
myDate = Date
Sheets. Name = Date

Renaming Worksheets In Files In A Directory
Hope i can get some help here as my vba experience is extremely limited. I'm trying to run a macro from a spreadsheet that will go down a list of file names that i have entered in a worksheet where the macro resides and open those spreadsheets and rename the worksheets in each file according to a list of names that i have entered in the 10 columns next to the file name. It's easier to explain with the layout of my macro spreadsheet: ....

Renaming Tabs With Dates
I´d like to have a single workbook for each calendar year, with a tab for each date Monday through Friday (like 11-Jun, 12-Jun, etc.). I could then type the patients` names and times of arrival, among the other information I track. Alternatively, I could have a workbook for each month of each year (titled for example 2007 June or 2008 August), with the tabs titled by the date of the month (like 1, 4, 10, etc).
Is there an easy way to do this without manually renaming each tab for each day of the year?
If it´s too hard to limit the macro to create tabs for only the days of the workweek, it wouldn´t bother me if the workbook had to include every day of the week (Sunday-Saturday). I can always go back and delete the unnecessary ones.
VBA: Inserting And Renaming A Worksheet
I'm relatively new to VBA and require programming help with the following:
I have created a button to add a specific worksheet template ("TE - Template") after another worksheet ("CO - Cockpit") and then name it:
Sheets("TE - Template").Select
Sheets("TE - Template").Copy After:=Sheets("CO - Cockpit")
ActiveSheet.Name = "AL - Class 1"
However, I would like to let Excel check (via VBA) if the "AL - Class 1" worksheet already exists. If it does, the same template sheet should be added but named differently: "AL - Class 2". This should be possible for X worksheets (i.e., "AL - Class (X + 1)" everytime I add a new template worksheet. Thus, I would like to keep the same name (i.e., "AL - Class"), but with an increasing number (i.e., 1, 2, 3, X).
how I should amend the above code or supply me with a better (and efficient) way of programming this query?
Renaming Files In A Folder

Renaming Files From A Spreadsheet
to take a spreadsheet in excel and rename files with it. I will get all the columns together and
named properly by using the concatenate function. So when i go to rename i would have a
list of say 5,000 things to rename. In column A will be the full path. In column B will be the
new name i want it to replace the old one with extension and all. The reason i want to do this
is because that way i can work with the 5,000 files column A, B, C, D, get everything the
way i want it and then concatenate them. Then rename the files after copying and repasting
them so there is no formula. This would just be much easier than having to go to each
individual file and rename. also a lot easier to be able to compare and see what is going on
in spreadsheet i can sort compare. just a lot easier. i have messed around with excel some
but not macros much. what i would like to do is for a macro to look in A1 for path then
rename with B1. then A2 for path then rename with B2. loop through all rows until there is
nothing in A? that way there does not have to be a certain number of files. i do not know if
C: estSGB04SGB04-08 - Frank Sinatra - Wives And Lovers.zip
rename to B1

Renaming Charts In 2007
In the old Excel it is possible to rename a chart by pressing SHIFT+Mouse Click and then write a new name in the upper left corner name box. You can apparently do the same thing in Excel 2007, but the new name doesn't stick.

VBA Shortcut For Renaming Multiple TextBoxes
Is there a shortcut to rename multiple TextBoxes?

TextBox2 --> OtherName2
TextBox3 --> OtherName3
TextBox4 --> OtherName4
TextBox5 --> OtherName5
TextBox6 --> OtherName6
TextBox7 --> OtherName7
TextBox8 --> OtherName8
TextBox9 --> OtherName9
TextBox10 --> OtherName10
Renaming Multiple Tabs By Month
I would like to rename multiple tabs (12 in all) on a spreadsheet by month only. I highlighted all tabs and then performed a cut and past from the previous year spreadsheet, but when the paste was complete the tab names were missing. I need January through December on the 12 tabs. Does anyone know of a shorter process than renaming each tab individually? I have called several people and asked the same question and they are curious if there is a way to do this also and asked that I let all of the know what I find out, so you would be helping quite a few people in several different companies (If that gives you happy thought, then good for all of us ).
Renaming Worksheet Tabs Macro
I would like to create a macro that would bring up an input box or preferably a list box that will allow me to input information for a sheet/tab name where where "TBL NPL NGRPL" appears in the code at the end of this message. The macro needs to be available to any new file created
The only worksheet names needed are below.
TBL NPL NGRPL
TBL NPL NIAU7
TBL NPL NIAU8
TBL NPL NIA10
TBL NPL NNDU4
This is the extent of my ability:
Sheets("Sheet1").Name = "TBL NPL NGRPL"
I created six macros, but there must be an easier way.
Parsing/renaming Data In A Cell
ABCDE1Source DataDesired Result
Include these extensions: Exclude these extensions:2OLD.FILENAME.rar.htmNEW.FILENAME.rar
I'm looking for a formula which can take my original data (column A) and "transform" it into what you see in column B.
I am transferring large amounts of files from various servers to my ftp and back out again. My original data are url filenames which of course, are named differently and not how you see it in my example.
The filenames themselves are preceeded by website names and varoius folder/path names. I edit the links to include various Usernames and Passwords and at the same time, rename the original filenames. Then I transfer the files to my ftp.
Most of the files have a ".part*.rar" extension at the end, so my formula has only included this scenario. Rather than manually editing my formula everytime a different extension is present (about 20-30% of the time), I would like to find a way to automatically look at a table/list of possible extensions (D2:D7) which are to be recognized for the sake of finding the end of the filename itself, so that I can rename (SUBSTITUTE) the original filename to that of my choice (cell D13) and of course, also include the original extension(s) of the source data (keeping this is important, especially in the cases where ".part*.rar's" are present). The list of extensions in cells E2:E7 are to be excluded from the new filename.
My present formula works fine for the editing of the username and passwords for various servers and for finding the beginning of the filename in the original url. It also works fine for finding the end of the filename (for the sake of renaming it), but only in cases where a .part*.rar" is present.
Renaming Of Worksheet Tabs From List
I have a workbook with 37 sheets in it. 36 of them are three per month (e.g JanCash, JanWeekly, JanMCR, etc) Since we make updates/ changes to the file throughout the year I cannot reuse the files. Also since we have accounts on different fiscal years, I need a way to rename the sheet tabs from a list. Does anyone know how I can do this with VBA code?
Activechart.export Not Renaming Temp File
I am trying to export a chart using the code below, the loops change the data that is used to produce the chart:
Dim strFilename As String
Dim strExt As String
Dim lngProfile As Long
Dim lngOption As Long
For lngOption = 1 To 3
Range("nmOption") = Choose(lngOption, "Existing", "Option 4", "Option 5")
For lngProfile = 1 To 4
Range("nmProfile") = "Profile " & lngProfile
strExt = "gif"
strFilename = ThisWorkbook.Path & "Images" & _
Range("nmOption") & "_" & Range("nmProfile") & "." & strExt
ActiveChart.Export strFilename, strExt
Each export command creates a file with the correct name but no data (0kb in size) and a temporary file that is the correct file type (I have tried both jpg and gif).
I could try and copy the temporary file, but why does Excel not finish the job? I have tried to put a loop in and also added DoEvents after the export but no joy.
Renaming Sheets (newly Opened Workbook And Change It's Name)
I'm experimenting a bit with this code. The idea is the following:
I've got one spreadsheet (ThisWorkbook) were I define 5 names for 5 worksheets in all files of a specific folder (c: emp). I get stuck at this line: "wb.Sheet2.Name = myval2", since I'm for some reason not able to activate the newly opened workbook and change it's name....
Dim I As Long
Dim wb As Workbook
Dim firstrow As Long
Dim sht As Worksheet
Dim cell As Object
Dim count As Integer
Dim myval2 As Variant
Dim myval3 As Variant
Dim myval4 As Variant
Dim myval5 As Variant
Dim myval6 As Variant
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
It's important to mention that there is no name conflict and the names work when entered manually.
Renaming Workheet As Date Format (cell Reference) Using VBA
I download & import CSV files/ sheets from bank, visa accts etc & I am trying to automate the processes I use including ensuring I (& others) will use the same naming conventions eg visa "yymm" = V0701, Direct Cedits = DC0701 etc. I am having trouble renaming or ensuring the active sheet is named according to the date in A3 eg in the example I want the sheet to be renamed V0702 as the date in the cell is 02/02/07 "dd/mm/yy" format ( imperial system). In BOLD is what I have & the renaming is messy becuase I searched the forum, Walkenbach's bible & help menu.
Dim shtName As String
Dim newName As String
'ActiveSheet.Name = shtName
newName = "V" & Format(DateValue("A3"), "yymm")
'Old name for future reference = Visa0701 (2)
ActiveSheet.Name = newName
Worksheets(shtName).Name = "V" & Format(Range("A3"), yymm)
'Worksheets("Visa0701 (2)").Name = "V" & (FormatDateTime(Range("A3"), yymm))
'To select Date column & format
Range("A3:A66").Selection.NumberFormat = "dd".............
Renaming Sheets: Replace The Word "March" In The Title
What I am attempting to do is to replace the word "March" in the title of worksheets with the word "April" while preserving other characters in the name, i.e. for the sheet named "Marchweek4", have it renamed to "Aprilweek4". The code that I have so far will not replace only the "march" string but will replace the entire name which is not quite what I want.

Add Row In 2 Worksheets
I need to add a row in tab "Clients", every time I have a new customer. Then I need to add that same row in another tab "Master". I tried using a macro but it copies the same row with the same information again and again.

If...Sum Across Worksheets
I have a worksheet titled Current, which houses data about current Work Orders out of our shop.
In column E I have the departments listed
In column I, I have the numbers of hours worked on a particular job.
In another worksheet I am trying to sum the total hours of work performed for a particular department.
Here is the formula I tried to create, but it returns FALSE?
VBA UDF To Add Worksheets
I want a UDF to copy a data range, add a new worksheet and paste the range into it as part of a function calculation not a user interface macro.
I simply cannot add a worksheet from a Sub that is called by a Function, only by a Sub launched as a macro. As shown below - the Function quits at Sheets(SheetName).Select as there is no such Sheet.
It seems that VBA cannot add worksheets from UDFs. Does VB .Net do this? How can I add sheets within a UDF without user interface objects?
Sum Between Worksheets
I have a large data file, to make work easy for myself i have seperated each section into different worksheet. well my problem is. i want to use this very simple method for SUM "=SUM(A1+A2+A3)". If I am doing this on a same worksheet its no problem at all.
Is there any way to use this same simple method between different sheets?
like. Sum of A1 of sheet1 + A1 of sheet2 + A1 sheet3 here.. A1 is a cell and sheet 1 onwards are different sheets
I need to merge for worksheets (in the same workbook) into 1 large worksheet.
Is there a command that does this? Or do you guys have a custom macro that does this?
Stale Worksheets, Why?
I'd like to update some of the hardcoded numbers to functions that would pull from lookup tables. However, when I enter this in A1,
="Blah, blah "&B1&"."
In a "fresh" spreadsheet I get "Blah, blah 2009." , in cell A1 where B1 has 2009 typed in.
In a "stale" spreadsheet I get "#VALUE!" in cell A1 (with 2009 typed in B1).
I've tried right clicking--> format cells and then changing to a variety of formats w/no luck at all. The only thing that works is to create a new sheet in the workbook and reformat the table and cells by hand. Clearly this is an ineffective workaround.
So, exactly what is the property that I need to reset in the "stale" worksheets that will allow, ="Blah, blah "&B1&"." to be read properly?
