Hi

I have VBA code (behind Sheet1) that adds new sheets each time it is run (see code below).
The problem is that the sheet numbers are getting bigger and bigger (eg Sheet34)
Is there a way to make the first sheet "Sheet2"
Sheets.Add after:=Sheet1
 Set NewSht1 = ActiveSheet

Open in new window

Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Sheets.Add
ws.Name = "Sheet2"

Thanks. I forgot to mention that I am naming the sheet already. The name is a date, but the VBE still shows each sheet as Sheet33 etc

I believe you can't change that name as it's how the system recognizes them, probably wrong here.

If you're already naming the sheets then why not refer to them by name?

You can change the vbe code name:

ThisWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents("Sheet1").Name = "NewCodeName"

Idle curiosity - why do you need to change the CodeName?
