Is there a way to make the name of a worksheet tab equal to a cell value.   Essentially I want someone to type their name in cell "A1" and then have that name become the tab name.  Is this possible?

Something like this?
With ActiveSheet
    .Name = .Range("A1").Value
End With

Open in new window

How would this activate when they type in the cell?

Er, well you'd have to run the macro. Is this a single sheet, any sheet...?

In the sheet module:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Address = "$A$1" Then
    ActiveSheet.Name = Target.Value
End If

End Sub
