Are you able to add in code to the VBA by automatically changing the sheet name? instead of doing that manually?

Thank you SO MUCH! I've always created multiple sheets, then copy/paste the data, but that doesn't copy over the "print gridlines" formatting, which I often forget to select. The actual copy/ paste bit doesn't save me that much in actual min:sec, but it saves me so much in aggravation. I love this! I've copied your instructions and will use them every month from now on. Thank you, again!

I created a file that contains 12 sheets, one for each month. Each month should have the same page format. I finished decorating my page but when I look at each sheet, I realize that only January, March, July, and September were modified. Why did this happen? How do I fix it?

Which method you use? Both of above methods, you need to format a sheet first, then apply the methods.
