Retrieve the names of worksheets and display them in a MsgBox

Dear Experts:

On the currently open workbook I would like to perform the following action using VBA:

Retrieve the worksheets' names of all the worksheets of the currently open workbook with  the exception of the sheets named 'Main', 'Calculation' and any sheets with the default names such as 'sheet1'.

The worksheet names are to be displayed in a MsgBox. I know that there is a character limitation on MsgBoxes.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Hi ssaqibh,

the sheet names are nicely listed in your msgbox although I am afraid to tell you that the msgbox still lists 'Sheet1'. ws.CodeName does not seem to work.

Martin: Great job. Works just fine. Thank you very much.
