How do I delete the sheet by name.  The   oBook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open(FilePath & GetFileName  Date1 & ".xlsx")  works.

Dim objExcel As Excel.Application
        objExcel = New Excel.ApplicationClass
        Dim FilePath As String = "C:\ExcelReport\"
     GetFileName As String = "Book1.xlsx"

        Dim Date1 As String = Date.Now.Year.ToString & Date.Now.Month.ToString & Date.Now.Day.ToString

        Dim oBook As Excel.Workbook, oSheet1 As Excel.Worksheet, oSheet2 As Excel.Worksheet

     oBook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open(FilePath & GetFileName  Date1 & ".xlsx")
if oBook.Worksheet.Name = "Sheet1" then
end if

You can use oBook.Sheets or oBook.WorkSheets collection but it only accepts index not name.

It looks like you are opening a workbook and want to delete the first sheet in the workbook if it is called/named Sheet1.  If so, try changing line 11-13 of you code to something like:
if oBook.Worksheets(1).Name = "Sheet1" and oBook.Worksheets.Count>1 then
end if
