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 End If Next
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).
I've currently got a problem with renaming the ActiveSheet when multiple worksheets are present. The code below, utilizes existing fields on the worksheet and a concat with static text. The code works great if only one sheet is present. However, as soon as the second sheet is inserted in the workbook, I'm now receiving a 1004 error (application-defined or object-defined error).
Code: Private Sub updateWorksheetName_Click() Dim fNumber Dim pCheckNumber
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: ....
The pictures' filenames are #s which are located in Column A of the spreadsheet. I would like to be able to have excel take the picture name, lookup which Row it is and then add the information from Column B, C, D and E into the filename. It would need to do it for all the pictures located in the folder.
I need to rename a large number of .pdf files. I have a list of the current file names in column A and the desired file names in column B.
Data in excel sheet1:
Current NameDesired Name AAA-BBB-001.PDFAAA-BBB-001-Description.PDF AAA-BBB-002.PDFAAA-BBB-002-Description.PDF AAA-BBB-003.PDFAAA-BBB-003-Description.PDF AAA-BBB-004.PDFAAA-BBB-004-Description.PDF AAA-BBB-005.PDFAAA-BBB-005-Description.PDF
I keep them in the destination folder below:
I prefer to use an excel macro since I can't install any additional software on my work computer.
I have a VBA Code which executes SSIS Package. Before executing that package i need to open the excel sheet saved in C:SSISPackages and rename sheet "SSISP"and then close the sheet..It will not be sheet1 but someother names(cannot guess)..
Iīd 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 itīs too hard to limit the macro to create tabs for only the days of the workweek, it wouldnīt 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.
I got a workbook containing a worksheet called APheb1.
I would like to create a macro that would replicate this worksheet and rename it APheb2, APheb3 etc... till a number i specify. For example if i specify 90, then it would replicate APheb1 90 times till APheb90.
I have recorded a macro that replicates the file but i cannot find a solution for the renaming part.
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.
Every week I get a folder full of files and I have to rename them with a week ending date...Below is what I hacked together, but it's not working...
Dim OldName, NewName, npath As String weekendingdate = InputBox("What is W/E Date??") npath = "J:Test*.pdf" While Smith "" OldName = Smith: NewName = Smith & weekendingdate Name OldName As NewName Wend
is there any way that i can adjust this code so that if there are not enough worksheets in my workbook to support my list that more worksheets will be made and renamed? Specifically I would like to copy the first worksheet and then rename it based on my list. also... If I have more worksheets than my list requires it can delete unused worksheets?
Sub NameSheets() Dim i As Long Dim ws As Worksheet i = 1 For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets If ws.Name "Sheet Names" Then ws.Name = Sheets("Sheet Names").Cells(i, 1) i = i + 1 Next ws End Sub
I have a list on "Sheet Names" that changes the tab names on each sheet when i run the macro
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:
Sub Add_worksheet() Sheets("TE - Template").Select Sheets("TE - Template").Copy After:=Sheets("CO - Cockpit") ActiveSheet.Name = "AL - Class 1" End Sub
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?
I have a system that creates text files once a day in a set folder. I want to have a VBA script that will combine all text files in the folder (C:Daily Folder) into one text file (Full.txt) using a simple cut/paste addition, i.e., the lines from the second file are added after the lines from the first, the lines of the third after those, etc. The order does not matter.
I know there are other threads about combining text files and I'm sure I can figure that out if need be, but the problem is the system creates these files by adding .XXX to the name, with XXX being the file order number. So after 4 days, I have four files named K2500.001, K2500.002, K2500.003, and K2500.004. Windows reads these as being four different file types (.001, .002, .003, and .004). If you click on one of the files, Windows prompts you to associate it with an application. I've tried shell commands such as ren *.* *.txt , but the use of a "." in the file name seems to be a problem. Is there a way to change all "." to "-"? I've tried some PowerShell scripts there that haven't worked. I'd like a VBA solution because I don't know my butt from a hole in the ground when it comes to shell programming and so that it can be added to my VBA script for the Full.txt file.
Maybe the files don't need to be renamed at all--like I said, the end goal is the Full.txt file in C:Daily Folder that contains all the lines from the daily text files.
I am a teacher who has created a gradebook in Excel. Each class has a student template sheet, individual sheets for each student in the class (maximum 26 students/class) which has the structure of the template and some cell referencing to the template, and a couple of mark-entry sheets and a sheet that shows the progress of all students in the class.
A number of teachers in the school have been using this gradebook and I am constantly looking for ways to make it more user-friendly. Currently, when a new course starts, a teacher opens a blank copy of the file (which has all of the sheets I mentioned above present). To set up a class, the teacher enters the students' names once on the mark entry sheet (called the "Binder Sheet"), and then changes the individual student tabs (right click...rename...) to reflect the names of their students.
I am wondering if there is a way to have the individual sheet tabs (Student 1, Student 2...Student 26) update automatically to match the names that the teacher enters on the Binder Sheet in cells A4:A29.
I would like to be able to embed the update procedure/script into the blank template so that it is user friendly for others.
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 ).
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

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.
