Retrieving Worksheet Names in Excel

There are a few different ways that you can go about retrieving worksheet names in Excel. One way is to use the Name Manager. To do this, go to Formulas > Name Manager. This will open up the Name Manager dialog box. From here, you can select the name of the worksheet from the drop-down menu and then click on the Edit button. This will allow you to change the name of the worksheet.

Another way to retrieve worksheet names in Excel is to use the Worksheet Function. To do this, go to Formulas > Insert Function. This will open up the Insert Function dialog box. In the search bar, type in "Worksheet" and then select the "Worksheet" function from the list of results. This function will return a list of all of the worksheets in the workbook.

You can also use VBA to retrieve worksheet names in Excel. To do this, go to Tools > Macro. This will open up the Macro dialog box. From here, you can select "Record New Macro" and then give your macro a name. Once you have done this, click on the Stop Recording button. This will stop recording your macro.
