Hello,
Within a workbook I have a number of sheets, which could be named from 1-??? - ??? denoting infinity.
I need a simple macro to loop through the workbooks, if the sheet name is between 1 & ??? then delete it.
TIA.

Assuming your workbooks are open already:

sub deleteNumericSheets
dim wbk as workbook, sht as worksheet

application.displayalerts=false

for each wbk in activewindow.workbooks
for each sht in wbk.worksheets
if isnumeric(sht.name) then sht.delete
next sht

next wbk

application.displayalerts=true

end sub
