Using the ListTables VB, is there a way to also include the tableNumber in the corresponding column ?
The reason I ask is because there have been some errors reported by Excel referring to the table numbers but I don't have visibility of the numbers anymore since I change the table names to something more descriptive but as Excel still uses the original table numbers in its error reporting, it's impossible for me to identify which of the many tables it had an issue with.

Thank you for this very useful post.
I have been wondering why is my Custom view greyed out, and I figured out it was due to an inserted table ! (not obvious)
