Synchronized Workbook and Worksheet Names in Excel

When you work with an Excel workbook, you may want to keep the workbook and worksheet names synchronized. For example, if you have a workbook named "Budget.xls" and you rename the first worksheet to "January," you may want to rename the second worksheet to "February."

You can use the following steps to synchronize workbook and worksheet names in Excel:

  1. Open the workbook that you want to synchronize.
  2. Click the worksheet tab for the first worksheet.
  3. Click the "View" tab on the ribbon.
  4. Click "Macros" in the "Show" group.
  5. Click "Record Macro."
  6. In the "Macro name" box, type a name for the macro.
  7. In the "Store macro in" drop-down list, click "Personal Macro Workbook."
  8. Click "OK."
  9. The Record Macro dialog box disappears, and Excel displays cell A1 in your worksheet.

    1. Type the following code in the Visual Basic Editor:

    Sub RenameSheets()
       Dim ws As Worksheet, strName As String
       For Each ws
