Hi, what "numbers" are you talking about?  Incrementing the sheet name, or copying data on the sheet?

So is the old sheet just the sheet immediately before the current one?

Something like this might work:

dteToday = InputBox("Enter todays date:")
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Add , ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Count)
Set objNewSheet = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Count)
objNewSheet.Name = dteToday
Set objPreviousSheet = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Count - 1)
objPreviousSheet.Range("A1:Z1").Copy objNewSheet.Range("A1")


Regards,

Rob.

i need it more like this. it needs to copy only the active sheet and make a new sheet and copy over the old data
dteToday = InputBox("Enter todays date:")
ActiveSheet.Select.Copy , ActiveSheet(ActiveSheet.Count)
Set objNewSheet = ActiveSheets(ActiveSheet.Count)
objNewSheet.Name = dteToday
