Remove text from every sheet name

all of the sheets in the file are preceded with DOCS and I need to remove this from every sheet but keep the rest of the name.

So i.e.

DOCS GBP needs to be GBP

DOCS USD needs to be USD


can an expert provide me with vba code that will do this please.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


pls try

Sub macro()

For Each sh In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    If sh.Name Like "DOCS *" Then
        sh.Name = Mid(sh.Name, 6)
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

EDIT corrected code
