    How to add bydefault table with row name and column name on sheets after creating sheets using command button. Please help.

    How can the code be modified to copy a worksheet labeled "Template" and rename it to the values in the list selected in the range? I tried modifying the "worksheets.Add" code to "Worksheets("Template").Copy but it just makes copies with the worksheets labeled "Template(1)", "Template(2)", etc.

    Also, is there a way to put the tabs in numerical order as they are added?

    Hi,
    Would it be possible to set-up a template for the new sheets created, instead of blank worksheets.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    I want to create invoices using excel and need to know whether is there a way to auto generate the second continuation page when the items on the first page exceed the A4 page layout that I have predefined? Any help is appreciated.

    Could you modify the VBA code so that if the worksheet exists, it is skipped over? As it exists now, running the code a second time on the same range will create numbered worksheets.

    Thanks!
