"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.

Try this

Sub SelectStaffTabs()
    Dim ws As Worksheet, arNames() As String, i As Integer
    For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        If InStr(1, ws.Name, "staff", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then
            i = i + 1
            ReDim Preserve arNames(1 To i)
            arNames(i) = ws.Name
        End If
    Next ws
End Sub

Open in new window

Got a Run-time Error '13':

Type mismatch

This piece of the code is highlighted:

"Sheets (arNames).Select"

I've attached a sheet that I tested it on and got error.

I inserted the code in your file.
In a module, a sheet module and the workbook module.
Works fine.
Here is the file with the code in Module1.
