    naming worksheets

    I want to match the name of a worksheet tab with the header of a form. In other words, if I type the name of the form in a header (a
    cell), the worksheet tab would change the name to match the header name.

    Here's what I'm using but it's not working:

    Private Sub workbook_SheetChange(ByVal sh As Object, ByVal target As Range)
    If target.Address = "$d$1" Then sh.Name = target
    End Sub

    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? THANKS!

    Re: naming worksheets

    Has to be upper-case

    Private Sub workbook_SheetChange(ByVal sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Address = "$D$1" Then sh.Name = Target.Value
    End Sub

    Try:

    Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Address = "$D$1" Then Sh.Name = Target
    End Sub

    Thanks guys, but I'm still getting an error. Could my other macros in this file be affecting it??

    Re: naming worksheets

    Did you put the code in the ThisWorkbook code module?

    Re: naming worksheets

    Your code will error out if there is already a sheet by that name or if you
    try to use name the sheet "History". You can add this procedure to check if a
    sheet by that name already exists...

    Public Function SheetExists(SName As String, _
    Optional ByVal WB As Workbook) As Boolean
    'Chip Pearson
    On Error Resume Next
    If WB Is Nothing Then Set WB = ThisWorkbook
    SheetExists = CBool(Len(WB.Sheets(SName).Name))
    End Function

    Additionally the code will not catch if anything is pasted into the cell.
    The only code that should affect this is application.enableevents = ?? which
    could effectively turn it off, but it will not cause an error.

    I set up another workbook to test this and it works in there. It must have something to do with my existing code. I checked for duplicate names and the "history" name and its all good. I'll keep messing with it. Thanks for your help.
