Hi,

Please offer a method to autonumber the worksheet tabs - and what is the maximum number of tabs per workbook.

>>What is the maximum number of tabs per workbook.
Sheets in a workbook is limited by available memory (default is 3 sheets)

To rename the sheets, see that attached code.
Sub RenameSheets()
        
    Dim myCounter As Integer
    Dim i As Integer
    
    myCounter = 100
        
    For i = 1 To Worksheets.Count
        Sheets(i).Name = myCounter
        myCounter = myCounter + 1
    Next

End Sub
