    Have a loop macro loop for all visible worksheets

    Hi,

    I have managed to put together a short loop macro that inserts a number of rows between each account in a list. I need this macro to repeat in all the visible worksheets in my workbook. The workbook will not always have the same number of worksheets and their names will be different.

    I have tried using the below but am coming up with error messages.

    I don't know how to make it work, is it because I am running 2 loops?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Graeme

    Re: Have a loop macro loop for all visible worksheets

    Hi Judgeh59,

    when I use the below it loops the initial macro but it loops it through twice more, I have 3 worksheets open, on the first worksheet without going to the 2nd or 3rd.

    I've tried other variations and come up with compile error 'for without next'.

    any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Graeme

    Re: Have a loop macro loop for all visible worksheets

    I would give John's code a go....looks about right to me....I would imagine yours doesn't do what you want is because you aren't activating/selecting the next worksheet....

    IE: ws.Activate

    John H Davies - you just nailed it.

    That is great. Was it to do with setting dim as anworksheet rather than an integer?

    Re: Have a loop macro loop for all visible worksheets

    You're welcome. Glad to help out and thanks for the feedback. Each type of loop For i = , For each ws should work however you must indicate the sheet. If you use the i loop then With Sheets(i) or Sheets(i).activate. Please comply with Forum Rule No. 9.

    Re: Have a loop macro loop for all visible worksheets

    Thanks John,

    Not sure I fully understand but will be able to adopt the code in future.

    Just getting into VBA and seem to be picking bits up but mainly splicing bits of code from here there and everywhere!
