Excel Macro to create a new worksheet

Hello Experts Exchange
I have a worksheet that is call BLANK, and every month I have to create a spreadsheet that has a BLANK worksheet for every work day in the month.

Is there a way in a macro to copy the BLANK worksheet and give it the name of a work day in the month, and the macro to keep copying the BLANK worksheet until a worksheet is created for the whole month?

The format of the worksheet name should be for examples;
01 Sep
02 Sep
03 Sep

Regards

I've kept it fairly generic so you can adapt it as you wish.

Sub CreateSheets()
Dim MyMonth As String, NumDays As Integer
MyMonth = "Sep"
NumDays = 30
For intday = 1 To NumDays
    Sheets("BLANK").Select
    Sheets("BLANK").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name = Format(intday, "00") & " " & MyMonth
Next
End Sub

This assumes you run the macro in the month you want to create the sheets for.

Sub CreateSheets()
    Dim sht As Worksheet
    Dim intDays As Integer
    Dim lngDays As Long
    
    On Error Resume Next
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    For Each sht In Worksheets
        sht.Delete
    Next
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    On Error GoTo 0
    intDays = Day(DateSerial(Year(Now), Month(Now) + 1, 1) - 1)
    Sheets(1).Name = "01 " & MonthName(Month(Now), True)
    
    For lngDays = 2 To intDays
        Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
        Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name = Format(lngDays, "00") & " " & MonthName(Month(Now), True)
    Next
    
End Sub

To create the sheets for next month.

Sub CreateSheets()
    Dim sht As Worksheet
    Dim intDays As Integer
    Dim lngDays As Long
    Dim dtNextMonth As Date
    
    dtNextMonth = DateAdd("m", 1, Date)
    
    On Error Resume Next
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    For Each sht In Worksheets
        sht.Delete
    Next
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    On Error GoTo 0
    intDays = Day(DateSerial(Year(dtNextMonth), Month(dtNextMonth) + 1, 1) - 1)
    Sheets(1).Name = "01 " & MonthName(Month(dtNextMonth), True)
    
    For lngDays = 2 To intDays
        Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
        Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name = Format(lngDays, "00") & " " & MonthName(Month(dtNextMonth), True)
    Next
    
End Sub

Another approach:

Public Const MONTH_NUM As Integer = 9 'change this to suit whichever month you want to create a workbook for

Sub CreateDaySheets()

i = 1

Do

    Sheets("BLANK").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    
    Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name = Format(i, "0#") & " " & Left(MonthName(MONTH_NUM), 3)

    i = Day(DateAdd("d", 1, DateSerial(2014, MONTH_NUM, i)))

Loop Until i = 1

End Sub

Hi,

If you only want workdays

pls try

Sub CreateSheetsThisMonth()
Dim MyMonth, NumDays As Integer
MyMonth = Month(Now())
intDays = Day(DateSerial(Year(Now()), Month(Now()) + 1, 1) - 1)
For intday = 1 To intDays
    If WorksheetFunction.Weekday(DateSerial(Year(Now()), Month(Now()), intday), 2) < 6 Then
        Sheets("BLANK").Select
        Sheets("BLANK").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
        Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name = Format(intday, "00") & " " & MonthName(MyMonth, True)
    End If
Next
End Sub

Sub CreateSheetsNextMonth()
Dim MyMonth, NumDays As Integer
MyMonth = Month(Now() + 1)
intDays = Day(DateSerial(Year(Now()), Month(Now()) + 2, 1) - 1)
For intday = 1 To intDays
    If WorksheetFunction.Weekday(DateSerial(Year(Now()), Month(Now() + 1), intday), 2) < 6 Then
        Sheets("BLANK").Select
        Sheets("BLANK").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
        Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name = Format(intday, "00") & " " & MonthName(MyMonth, True)
    End If
Next
End Sub
