In Excel, all the sheet tabs will be listed at the bottom of the Excel window. But if you handle lots of sheets in a workbook, I am afraid that the sheet tabs bar will become too short to display all the sheet tabs, so you may have to use the sheet tabs scrolling buttons for switching between sheets in Excel.  In this case, I recommend you Kutools for Excel's Navigation Pane which can help you deal with many sheets at once in Excel.

How do I revers this this? I have a list of fifty different names I need to enter on the tabs of 50 worksheets (all on the same workbook). Is there a macros formula I can use to accomplish this? I'm trying to not manually enter 50 names on tabs/worksheets. I know how to get the tab names to form a list on a separate sheet, how do I reverse that? Thank you
