renaming a newly added worksheet in excel with VB.

  • 11 years ago


    I would like to add a new name to freshly added worksheet in an excel workbook with VB.NET 2005...  I have already used
    excelWorksheet.Name to name the current worksheet.  But I will need to add more sheets and I would like to use the same name on each sheet and concatenate a number on the end of the name.  So I can navigate though my workbook and place data on the correct sheets.

    Any suggestion?
    Thank you

    Why not name it as you are creating the worksheet?

    thank you...   i did, at least for the first sheet, after then as sheets are added they are numbered.

    For one application, I used a pre-defined template worksheet and copied it each time a needed a new sheet.
    This may point you in the right direction....

    Global oXL As Excel.application
    Global oWB As Excel.Workbook
    Global oTemplate As Excel.Workbook
    Global oSheet As Excel.Worksheet

    With oWB
        .Sheets("Template").Copy After:=.Sheets(.Sheets.count)     'copy from the "template"
        .Sheets("Template (2)").name = shtName     'rename the sheet
        Set oSheet = .Sheets(shtName)     'make this the active sheet
    End With
