Testing out a simple procedure and it isn't working.
I'm trying to rename the code name of a sheet (see graphic for code and error.
That property is definitely NOT read only.  I can change it manually.  Why not using code?

Not everything that you can do manually can be done through code.

Just press F1 on CodeName, and if the VBA help was installed on the station, you will see that CodeName Property "Returns the code name for the object. Read-only String".

And a little further down in help, it is said that you can change it in design, but "you cannot programmatically change this property at run time."
