sheet names are sheettest,save,sheettest2.
MyArray(2) is Dog
set two watches to make sure that is what is being seen.
fig is set to false
fig becomes true even though it never finds a sheet called Dog.
can someone see why????????

For Each WS In Worksheets
If WS.Name Like MyArray(2) Then flg = True: Exit For
If flg = True Then
   DirectCopyInfo = True
   'do nothing
   Sheets.Add.Name = MyArray(2)
   DirectCopyInfo = False
End If

What are all your worksheet names? And why do you use 'Like' rather than '='?

This article of mine may help you. It's aimed at VB6 but most of it allies to VBA.

What the Author means is that somewhere in the code he has something like

MyArray(2) = "Dog"

Hi, javagair.

Please add the following line...
Debug.Print myarray(2) & " - " & ws.Name & " - " & flg
For Each ws In Worksheets
... and let us know what's output to the Immediate Pane.

please make sure it's not a plain "typo" ...
