Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2013-10-24

If you have a range of data in your worksheet, and now, you want to create a sequence of worksheets based on the cell data, see following screenshot. Of course, you can edit the worksheet name one by one manually, but if there are multiple worksheet names need to be edited, this way will be troublesome and time-consuming. Here, I will talk about some quick tricks to help you.

arr = WorkRng.Value
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For i = 1 To UBound(arr, 1)
    For j = 1 To UBound(arr, 2)

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, 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! Chris
