Excel VBA- Only Select Worksheets Containing a Comma

Hi Experts :)

Quick question... Is there a way to select only worksheet's whose name contains a comma?

If so what would be the VBA code for it?

I would like all worksheets containing commas selected.  They will all be next to each also, just FYI if that would make a difference.

Thank you for your assistance!

Would the following Macro help you?

Sub activateSheet(sheetname As String)
'activates sheet of specific name
    Worksheets(sheetname).Activate
End Sub

Basically you want to make use of the .Activate function. Or you can use the .Select function like so:

Sub activateSheet(sheetname As String)
'selects sheet of specific name
    Sheets(sheetname).Select
End Sub

Hi esskayb2d...  Thank you for your help!

I attempted to use the latter code but it's not functioning.  I attached a sample workbook to assist.  

I placed your code in a module named:  modSelectWS and attempted to Step through the code but the "DIM Sheetfound = "" is in RED and the remaining code advises I'm unable to rename a sheet the same as one that already exists.

I was selecting the sheet because I want to copy the range A3:F5 from the "Email Daily Stats" sheet onto each sheet that has a name on it with the following format:  "Last Name, First Name" in that sheets A1:F3 range.. cell A3 should contain the worksheet's name

I was thinking selecting each sheet with a comma would be the easiest as the Master workbook contains over 20 sheets outside of the ones with the employee names.

Thank you again ~
