Copy Sheet and Rename All Named Ranges

Hello Experts,

I'm using Excel 2010 and I'd like to accomplish the following using vba code:


Copy the last worksheet in workbook


Prompt user to enter a name for the newly copied worksheet and rename the worksheet with the User's input


Rename part of all existing named ranges in the newly copied worksheet.  For example, using the string that the user entered in Step 2, is it possible to use the vba InStr function to replace Name1 with Joe as presented in the attached spreadsheet
Please refer to attachment for example

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Try this...

    Dim newSheetName As String, originalSheetName As String, nm As Name
    newSheetName = InputBox("Enter name of new sheet")
    If newSheetName = "" Then Exit Sub
    originalSheetName = Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name
    Sheets(originalSheetName).Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    ActiveSheet.Name = newSheetName
    For Each nm In ActiveSheet.Names
       nm.Name = Replace(Replace(nm.Name, originalSheetName, newSheetName), newSheetName & "!", "")
