    I NEED TO CREATE TIMESHEETS FOR 25 WORKERS EVERY MONTH USING 1 TIMESHEET FORMAT, HOW DO I CHANGE THE NAMES ONCE SO THAT IT PRINTS ALL 25 TIMSHEETS WITH EACH WORKERS NAME

    I was hoping to do something similar, but wayyy more complicated. Do you have tips?

    ----
    I have to create 79 tabs in excel using a standard template [see below], but that references sequential values in a separate worksheet. We will call the template worksheet "Template" and the worksheet that contains the reference values "Reference". I need help creating a macro to do the following:

    1) Copy the template 79 times.


    2) Name each new worksheet according to the sequential rows in column F of "Reference" (so the first copy of "Template" would have a name defined in F3 in the "Reference" sheet. the second copy of "Template" would have a name defined by F4, etc. etc. etc).


    3) Set the values of cells in the new worksheets (i.e. the copies of "Template") equal to sequential rows in Column A, B, C, D, E of the worksheet "Reference", such that copy 1 of the "Template" references cells A3, B3, C3, D3 and E3; copy 2 of the "Template" references cells A4, B4, C4, D4, E4; etc.

      Firstly, you can use the Split Data utility function of Kutools to split each row or the range to a separate sheet in a new workbook, then copy the column or "reference" which use to name the sheet to one of the sheet in the new workbook, and apply Rename Multiple Worksheet and check From specific range to select the cells you have copied to rename the sheets. Then remove the reference cells.
