Hello,

I need your help with a VBA macro that would delete all sheets in a workbook except SheetA, SheetB, SheetC and SheetD.  Is this possible?

this should be OK...
Sub DeleteSheets()
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

For Each ws In Worksheets
    If ws.Name = "SheetA" _
        Or ws.Name = "SheetB" _
            Or ws.Name = "SheetC" _
                Or ws.Name = "SheetD" _
                    Then
                        'do nothing
                    Else
                        ws.Delete
    End If

Next ws
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Open in new window

Hi,

a shorter version of Barman's code
Sub DeleteSheets1()
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

For Each ws In Worksheets
    If ws.Name Like "Sheet[A-D]" Then
        'do nothing
    Else
    ws.Delete
    End If

Next ws
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Open in new window

Regards

If the macro can reside on a different workbook then you can do this without looping

Sub delshts()
    Set owb = ActiveWorkbook
    opath = owb.Path
    oname = owb.Name
    Sheets(Array("SheetA", "SheetB", "SheetC", "SheetD")).Move
    owb.Close False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs opath & "/" & oname
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub
