I name my sheet tabs as new accounts come in. After they are name I would
like to alphabetize the sheet tab names without having to manually rearrange
them.

Can you write a macro that puts the sheet tabs in alphabetical order?
with two exceptions:
Sheet named Cover is in position1 (it also happens to be sheet1)
Sheet Report Verifier is in position2 (it also happens to be sheet2)

then the remaining sheets are alphabetical by sheet name

I have a different sheet for each person in an Excel workbook, and I have
named them in the format: "Last Name, First". Is there a way to arrange them
all in alphabetical order at one time, or do I need to move each tab
individually?

I have numbered sheet tabs in a workbook. They are not in numerical order.
Can I sort them in numerical order?

Hi Group,

When I have made a worksheet, with many tabs along the bottom, is there a
way in which I can then re-arrange the tabs into alphabetical order?

Many thanks

Is it possible to sort sheet tab alphabeticly in an excel file

Hi,

I work for a company supplying staff to railway engineering sites and have been trying to work out how to have our planning spreadsheet provide management info such as number of each competency used per client, profit per client, etc.

I have a tab for management info, then 15 tabs named Sheet01-15 (one per client, the idea being that our consultants rename the tab to the client's names) which have our planning sheets on.

Cell A2 of every client tab has the name of the client. On the management info tab i have the following:

Column A (Names of the clients)
='Sheet01'!$A$2
='Sheet02'!$A$2
='Sheet03'!$A$2
='Sheet04'!$A$2
='Sheet05'!$A$2

Column B (# of each competency, in this case a Trackman aka PTS)
=COUNTIF('Sheet01'!B:B,"TM*")+COUNTIF('Sheet01'!B:B,"pts*")
=COUNTIF('Sheet02'!B:B,"TM*")+COUNTIF('Sheet02'!B:B,"pts*")
=COUNTIF('Sheet03'!B:B,"TM*")+COUNTIF('Sheet03'!B:B,"pts*")
=COUNTIF('Sheet04'!B:B,"TM*")+COUNTIF('Sheet04'!B:B,"pts*")
=COUNTIF('Sheet05'!B:B,"TM*")+COUNTIF('Sheet05'!B:B,"pts*")

And so on for the various competencies that I need to total up. The idea is that I have a table on the management info page with each row having columns A-O showing 'Client Name, # of competency 1, # of competency 2' and so on.

My problem is that while 'Sheet01', 'Sheet02' in the formulas change when the tabs are renamed to match the client name, if after renaming 'Sheet01' to 'A Client', 'Sheet02' to 'B Client' and 'Sheet03' to 'D Client', they then need to make 'C Client' they have no choice but use 'Sheet04'. This means that Column A on the management info tab will no longer have the clients in alphabetical order.

I have an example spreadsheet with some fake data in to show what I mean but I can't seem to upload it. If someone could tell me why not I'll try and fix it and show you the spreadsheet.

If anyone knows a way of keeping the clients on the management info page alphabetical I'd appreciate knowing.

The reason I use premade Sheet01-Sheet15 tabs is because I couldn't find a way to have rows on the management info tab be automatically created and filled with the formulas whenever a new client tab was created. If there is a way then that might make this problem irrelevant.

Thanks in advance for your help.

How can I get Excel to sort these into alphabetical order ?

Hi

I have a spreadsheet saved with one worksheet with all the results on it and 130 worksheets with calculations on them, each with its' own named tab along the bar at the bottom of the page. What I'd like to know is if it is possible to sort the tabs into alphabetical order so I don't have to roam through up to 130 to find the tab (and it's corresponding worksheet) I'm looking for.

Thanks.

Hi,

Does anyone know how to re-order the sheets/tabs within a Workbook in alphabetical order?

I have a workbook created by someone else with about 50 different sheet tabs.
Each tab is a part number. I would like to organize them alphabetically but
it is quite a chore since there are so many. Is there a macro I can use that
will automatically put them in alphabetical order?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi

I've written a macro that will create a worksheet if it is missing from the workbook. I would like to add a line that will then order all of the worksheets in a customized order by tab name (not alphabetical or by CodeName) so that the missing worksheet is in the right place within the workbook.

Here's part of my code to create the missing worksheets:

	VB:
	
 SetWorksheets() 
     
    [INDENT]Dim Demo As String[/INDENT][INDENT]Demo = "Demo"[/INDENT] 
    [INDENT]On Error Resume Next[/INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]Set AddSheetIfMissingA =
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(Demo)[/INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT]If AddSheetIfMissingA Is Nothing Then[/INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]Set
AddSheetIfMissingA = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Add[/INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]AddSheetIfMissingA.Name =
Demo[/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]Worksheets(Demo).Tab.ColorIndex =
35[/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT]End If[/INDENT][INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT]Dim Comp As
String[/INDENT][INDENT]Comp = "Comp"[/INDENT] 
    [INDENT]On Error Resume Next[/INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]Set AddSheetIfMissingB =
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(Comp)[/INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT]If AddSheetIfMissingB Is Nothing Then[/INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]Set
AddSheetIfMissingB = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Add[/INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]AddSheetIfMissingB.Name =
Comp[/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]Worksheets(Comp).Tab.ColorIndex =
35[/INDENT][/INDENT][/INDENT][INDENT]End If[/INDENT]End Sub

Also, not that it matters, but is there a way to set the CodeName so that a worksheet is always created as sheet1 or sheet2, etc?

Thanks for all the help

When a user inserts a new worksheet - I have a Userform show. The Userform forces the user to enter in certian information. 1 being the product name into a textbox. On cmdbutton click the sheet name is given by the value of Me.Textbox1.value.

What I would like to add to this is the code forcing the sheet into Alpha then Numeric position by tab name starting with position 2.

Position1 on the workbook sheet tab(s) would always be sheets("Product Info") then all sheets in Alpha order then all sheets in Numeric order based on first letter on the sheet name.

Any help would be appreciated,

Kurt

Hi,

I've got a workbook with several sheets. I'd like to color-code the sheet tabs in order form visible groups of sheets. For Example, I'd like to fill in a Blue shade in the tabs of Planning-related Sheets, and Red in the "Actual Data" sheet tabs.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Is there anyway to protect the order of sheet tabs?
I have a workbook that people can access on our local drive, but they keep changing the order of the sheet tabs(worksheets).
Anything help would be great!

Hi

Is there a way, whether it be by VBA or on pivot table properties where
I can get pivot tables to automatically sort data in alphabetical order
everytime I press refresh. For some reason, any new people that I add
on my sheet after the table was produced gets tacked at the bottom. IE

Original Data - this is how data looked like when data was produced

Apples Pears Peaches
Bob 2 3 1
Harry 3 2 1
James 1 0 3
Jim 1 4 2

This is what happens when I add new data and press refresh:

Apples Pears Peaches
Bob 2 3 1
Harry 3 2 1
James 1 0 3
Jim 1 4 2
Andy 1 4 2
Barry 2 3 1

Desired result when I press refresh is

Apples Pears Peaches

Andy 1 4 2
Barry 2 3 1
Bob 2 3 1
Harry 3 2 1
James 1 0 3
Jim 1 4 2

Thanks in advance
