in vba you could try something like

Option Explicit

Sub ListNames()
Dim sh As Worksheet
Dim i As Integer
i = 1
For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
  Sheets(1).Range("A" & i) = sh.Name
  i = i + 1
Next sh
End Sub

Hi LorangerG,

Dim shtToList As string
Dim strSheets As String
For Each shtToList In Worksheets
  strSheets = strSheets & shtToList.Name & vbLf
Next
Msgbox strSheets

Should do it.

in a function you could be passing in the workbook object and retrieve an array of names

Public Function GetWshNames(ByVal myxl As Object) As String()
Dim sh As Object
Dim sOut() As String
Dim i As Integer

ReDim sOut(myxl.Workbooks(1).Sheets.Count)

i = 0
For Each sh In myxl.Workbooks(1).Sheets
  sOut(i) = sh.Name
  i = i + 1
Next sh

GetWshNames = sOut

End Function
