Saving a Worksheets name

I would like to be able to save the worksheets name and use it as a bookmark in a word document.

This is what I have so far:

Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim ws1, ws2, ws3, ws4, ws5, ws6, ws7, ws8, ws9 As String

Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("CNE")
ws1 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("CNE")

The setting part work great.  But I want ws1 to equal the worksheets name. so it can be placed in a word document like so:

.Bookmarks("SR_Title").Range.Text = ws1 & "_HRS"                                                                                                  'Bookmark 12

Any thought son how to do this?

Hi John,

This will set ws1 to "CNE":

ws1 = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("CNE").Name

Open in new window

or, using the same syntax as you used:

ws1 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("CNE").Name

Open in new window

I only have a little bit left.  Just need to add in a screen that shows something is happening.  Users don't like looking down at the status bar.  So that is what I am doing now.  Once you provided the solution to the this question I was able to update all the modules with the simple find and replace.

Thanks again for the quick response.

If you are considering a "progress bar", may I recommend looking at this previous article?

The only issue I have with this is how to call it correctly.  But I will post that as a separate question here in a few seconds
