Dear Experts:

could somebody help me write the following VBA code:

Copy the current worksheet, and name it 'current_month'.
If a worksheet with the name 'current_month' already exists, that sheet is to be deleted it, but in that case a prompt ...
... should inform the user: "Sheet 'current_month' already exists. Would you like to delete it?" If pressed yes, the sheet named 'current_month' gets deleted first and the new one is created. If pressed no, the macro exits and nothing happens

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

Regards, Andreas
