    Excel Macro to Rename each Worksheet based on Cell Values

    Hi Excelforum Experts,

    I am currently using an excel macro template to consolidate multiple workbooks into one. However, I always spend much time renaming each worksheet of the workbook (I am now using the output of my excel macro template).

    In this regard, I would like to seek help for someone who could help me add additional VBA codes to the existing excel macro template I am currently using. I am attaching the excel macro template I am referring for you to add a function where it will automatically rename each worksheet of a workbook based on cell value. Below are the additional criteria of my desired output:

    1.) The additional VBA code should also run after clicking the "Automate" button on my excel macro template (see attached workbook).
    2.) Rename each worksheet based on "cell A4" of each worksheet. Cell A4 of each worksheet is Start Date: mm/dd/yyyy, the date may vary per worksheet.
    3.) The mm/dd/yyyy should be formatted to m/dd, thus, if cell A4 of Sheet1 is Start Date: 2/09/2017, Sheet1 will be renamed as 2.09. If cell A4 of Sheet2 is Start Date: 2/12/2017, Sheet2 will be renamed as 2.12. And so on.


    Let me know should you need clarifications. Thank you!

    Warmest regards,
    Arnel

    Re: Excel Macro to Rename each Worksheet based on Cell Values

    Hi Stephen,

    Thank you for your quick feedback. However, I am having an error per below code:

    ws.Name = Format(ws.Range("A4"), "M.DD")

    The worksheet name has a common name as Report, Report(2), Report(3),Report(4),Report(5), and so on. The common name is "Report".

    By the way, the content on cell A4 is shown below, but the date may vary per worksheet. Can we use the RIGHT function to get the date first before changing the format into m/dd?

    End Date: 2/7/2017

    Let me know should you need additional details.

    Thanks,
    Arnel

    Re: Excel Macro to Rename each Worksheet based on Cell Values

    Hi mike7952,

    I tried using your code but no luck, I am having an error with the codes below:

    wbDst.Worksheets(wbDst.Worksheets.Count).Name = _
    Format(wsSrc.Range("A4").Value, "M.DD")

    I also tried the below code given by Stephen along with my existing codes but I still have an error.

    Dim ws As Worksheet
    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
    ws.Name = Format(CDate(Mid(Range("A4"), 11, 10)), "m.dd")
    Next ws

    I appreciate if you could please help me identify what went wrong and what needs to be fixed. I am attaching the workbook I am working for your reference. Thank you!

    Warmest regards,
    Arnel

    Try this

    or with your other code your missing the ws. before the range. so your looping thru the worksheets but referncing the active sheet range a4, so its naming the sheets the same witch will cause your error.
