Variable Sheet Names In VBA

Feb 26, 2008

Running Windows CP; Excel 2003

The Board looks full of some interesting issues today.

I'm working on a workbook that hides and unhides a lot of columns depending on the month the user has selected. No problems here.

The sheets are named regionally, ie National 2008, California 2008 etc. The user is able to select the month and the year from separate combo boxes.

So when 2009 comes around I will need to rewrite many lines of code to point the VBA to the new worksheet names like National 2009, California 2009. My question is, is there a way to reference either variable worksheet names in the VBA or some other manner in which to write the code so I don't need to rewrite every year change?

I currently reference the sheets something like Sheets ("National 2008").Range("H:H").EntireColumn.Hidden=True

Referencing Sheet Code Names By Variable

Jul 18, 2006

I have a set of worksheets (Sheet31 through Sheet49 by codename) produced by a machine in the lab. I want to create a summary sheet that references cells in those worksheets.

Rather than go through the annoyance of doing this manually 40+ times I'm working on creating a macro to populate the summary sheet for me.

This is what I have so far

For J = 31 To 49
ResultSht = SheetJ.Name
Sheet1.Activate
ActiveSheet.Range("A4").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).Select

It hangs up on the "SheetJ.Name" however. My objective is to be using the object SheetJ, where the object SheetJ is the codename of the results sheet I'm trying to reference (for example, in the first pass through the loop it would be Sheet31). Could someone point out my mistake in this object reference?

Reference Sheets With Variable Sheet Names

Dec 4, 2007

I have a workbook with multiple sheets. There is an overview sheet and then 14 sheets allowing for 14 days worth of schedule information. There are then 3 sheets following the 14 days to total some information. The workbook users frequently change the sheet names of the 14 sheets to reflect days of the week.

I'm creating a copy for distribution that takes the active workbook and copies the values to a new workbook. There are columns that I would like to delete from the 14 day sheets and that would be easy enough if the sheet names were never changed.

The code I'm using currently follows (my thanks to Turtle 44 for helping on that section)

Sub Copy_Visible_Sheets()
Dim arr() As String
Dim i As Integer
Dim WB As Workbook
Dim WS As Worksheet
Set WB = ActiveWorkbook
Application. ScreenUpdating = False

'Make sure template is saved as .xls
If Not ThisWorkbook.Saved Then
MsgBox "Please save this workbook before generating a Client Copy."
Else

Excel 2010 :: VBA - Hide Sheets Using Code Names Not Sheet Names

Oct 15, 2013

Code:

Sheets(Array("Sheet 1", "Sheet 2")).Visible = False

How do I convert the above to using Sheet Codes Names, Sheet1 and Sheet2?

Want to ensure my code will work if the user changes the sheet name.

Create Array Of File Names/sheet Names

May 1, 2008

Two part question:

1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?

2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).

Concate Variable Names Using VBA

Jan 5, 2009

Here is the code loop that I have so far

For Each Dn In Rng
If Not .exists(Dn.Value) Then
.Add Dn.Value, ""

End If
Next Dn
I want to declare a varaible called peg and then for each Dn assign it to peg

so in the end for each Dn I should have peg1, peg2, etc, etc. Each of these should have a default value of zero that I will later modify.

Setting Variable Names In Vba

Aug 10, 2009

I am working on a macro for excel which has a userform where the user puts in the number of samples they have, then takes them to a new userform to input the weights of the samples. I want to be able to set the sample mass variable dynamically based on the number of samples they haveÖ

i.e.

spl1
spl2
spl3
.
.
.
splx

x=number of samples

This number will be different each time so I am stumped at how to do this since I have just started in vba and do not know too much yet.

Hyperlink Names In Sheet 1 To Same Names In Sheet Two?

I would like to hyperlink the names in sheet 1 to the same names in sheet two. Is there a way I could do this using a formula rather that do each one by one?

Formula Across Several Sheets With Variable Names

Mar 31, 2014

Is there a way to use formula (Sum in this particular case) across multiple sheets with sheet names having a particular criteria?

The sheet names are 5 digits but not sequential (cost centre numbers). I'm trying to find the total if the sheet name (number) falls within a particular range (e.g. 150xx-152xx, 153xx-168xx), with around 60 or so sheets in total.

I know it's possible to specify the range myself, or to add a blank sheet as a marker/guide to create a "sandwich" of the required sheets (e.g. =SUM(Start:End!A1)), but the cost centre ranges may change if they're changed so I'm trying to find a way to identify them as variables rather than requiring maintenance.

Although the layout of the sheets should not change (and so a macro might work..?) I think I'd prefer to find a formula (if possible).

Uses Three Different Variable To Poll Up People's Names That Are Available For The Task

Dec 3, 2009

I've created a file that uses three different variable to poll up people's names that are available for the task. I've got it to work using long formulas, containing if, index, match, etc. It's working well, but I think that the spreedsheet will become difficult to maintain (delete or add people to). I'm looking for a way to simplify my code, so that it won't be as time consuming to edit.

Recognize Text Values As Variable Names

Jul 1, 2006

I want VBA to take an equation that has been entered into an worksheet cell as text and evaluate it. Here's a very simplified example that shows the concept:

Cell A1 may contain the text: "A * B + C"

I would like to do something on the order of this in VBA:

Sub Test()
Dim A As Integer, B As Integer, C As Integer

A = 2
B = 4
C = 6

MsgBox Evaluate(Workbooks("Book1").Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value)

End Sub

Obviously, this doesn't work, but I want it to show a result of 14. The actual situation is much more complex, but it all comes down to being able to evaluate the text in a worksheet and recognize the variable names that are in it.

Open Multiple Workbooks With Variable Names

Aug 17, 2007

I have data spanning many files which are named with the date on which they were created (so there are 31 files for August).
For example:
PL080107, PL080207, PL080307, PL080407...)

I'm trying to compile all of my data into one workbook, and have the macro to append each file to a list. Now I need the macro to either OPEN each file, or ACTIVATE each file so that the rest of the Macro can grab the necessary data.

I say Open or Activate, because I can MANUALLY Open a full month's worth of files if it's easier code. If not, I would like it to open and close each workbook on its own.

I have over 7 month's worth, so opening 31 files 7 times is better than opening over 200 files individually!

Can Use Variable Names To Identify / Assign To Other Variables Or Arrays?

Apr 10, 2014

I have set up a number of arrays e.g. DataSetA (1 to 100), DataSetB (1 to 100) etc.

Is it possible to use a string variable (e.g. DataIndentifier) to identify and assign values to certain arrays.

For example, under certain conditions

DataIdentifier would be set to "DataSetA" and under other conditions
DataIdentifier would be set to "DataSetB".

Having done this, I want to assign values such as DataIdentifier(1) = 3.4 or DataIdentifier (10) = 6.2 etc.

This obviously won't work because DataIdentifier is defined as a string not an array. How do I enable the string DataIdentifier to be used as an identifier for the array I want to assign values to? Therefore if DataIdentifier is set to "DataSetA" then effectively I want something like "DataIdentifier(1) = 3.4" to assign 3.4 to the array DataSetA(1).

Evaluating List Of Similar Names And Assigning Common To Variable?

Sep 17, 2013

I am working on a customer report template that generates our customers reports and will send them out automatically.

This issue I have now is that the system that generates the raw data for these reports only lists the Customers name in a column with an entry for each line of data, the thing is though that the system has lots of variations of the customers name, even more so if that customers has different departments.

What I need to do is from this list of customer names, I need to automatically figure out what the "common" name is or main name so to speak, and then make a variable using the correct full name, which will be used later on in the code to import correct logos, and direct the reports to the correct people.

Here is a quick example of what data we get raw from the system:

Customer Name:
John Build
Johns Buildings
Johns Ltd Building
Johns Plumbing Department
Glass Doors Ltd A Department of Johns Buildings
Johns Building Corporation
Hole In One Golf Range

This is just an example, we have thousands of clients, so the length, number of words etc can change alot. Ideally I from a list similar to that I would get a full proper result of "Johns Buildings Ltd" for example, this would then be in a variable to be used in code from then on to reference doing certain things with the reports of Johns Buildings Ltd.

You'll notice there is one name "Hole In One Golf Range" that seems to have no relation at all, this is correct, ideally I would also like to build in some error checking into the code, so that rows like that that have nothing to do with the others would get deleted.

So how would you amazing VBA gurus go about working with data like this? I'd prefer a more general answer with explainations that just straight code, as I'm sure I will have to adapt the hell out of it for it to be useful in context.

Copying Sheet Names And Cell Data Into New Overview Sheet

Mar 21, 2013

I have workbook that has several sheets within the workbook that are set up identical. Each of the sheets in the workbook are for a specific company.

As of right now I have been adding a sheet to the workbook that is an overview for what is in each sheet (the individual companies). Currently I am doing the formatting of the heading and column names manually and I pull the data from each sheet with a VLookup. I have been trying to enhance my VBA skills with coding something that will fill in the appropriate cells from worksheet to worksheet.

What I am trying to do is to populate an overview sheet with cells C24, C25, and B36 being static on each row per sheet. Then each row will be populated with cells C(36, 59, 70, 81), D(36, 59, 70, 81), F(36, 59, 70, 81), G, and H(36, 59, 70, 81). The overview sheet will have the diagram below in a ru

Conditional Formulas-to Get A Spreadsheet To Automate Calculations Of Unit Costs Based On Variable Packaging Names

Dec 1, 2008

I am looking for a way to get a spreadsheet to automate calculations of unit costs based on variable packaging names.

I have a series of packages that are denoted by text phrases. Examples:

4/6/12
2/12/12
6/4/12
18/12
24/12

For our purposes let's say the package names above will always be in column A. Column B contains the frontline price of a case of product represented by the phrase in column A. Column C will contain the cost per unit of product - this is obtained by dividing column B by the number of each package arrangement that can be found in one case. Most of the time the number of package arrangements per case is denoted by the very first number in the package name (ie, 4/6/12 would be 4). This won't always be the case though (18/12 would be a package arrangement of 1).

I am looking for a way for the spreadsheet to do all of the following and return the results in column C: if the package name contains "4/6/12", divide column B by 4; if the package name contains "2/12/12", divide column B by 2; if the package name contains "6/4/12" divide column B by 6; if the package name contains "18/12", divide column B by 1; if the package name contains "24/12" divide column B by 24.

Summary Sheet Of Sheet Tab Names

What Iím after is this: I need to create a summary sheet for a work book with a variable number of tabs. All I need the summary sheet to do is to make a table of the name of the tab and then cell A17. How would I go about doing this and is it possible to save this macro to my machine/all workbooks instead of just the one?

I have about 50 different account names along Column A in sheet1, and the same account name sheets opened in the same workbook.

Duplication Of Sheet Names

Jan 16, 2007

I made a macro that will name the current sheet whatever text is found in cell B2 on that sheet. This works great unless that sheet name already exists.

If the sheet name already exists, is there a way to rename it as Cell B2 plus the number 2 after the title so it doesn't cause an error?

Example:

"Smith, Bob" is a sheet name, so the macro would make the new sheet name "Smith, Bob 2"

Alternatively, how could I give a pop-up telling about the error and deleting the current sheet instead of renaming it with a "2"?

Eample:

"Sorry, 'Smith, Bob' already exists. Deleting new sheet." as a popup and have it delete the current sheet.
