Excel workbook renaming add in

Hi Guys,


I need a excel template to have all below options. This can be done manually if the file is simple and neat. Where in sometime we get the huge data which contains 40+ tabs in one excel and thats where my life is going hectic.

1. First I have to rename the tabs based on the list I have in the first page (Summary).
2. Then as I have 40+ excel sheet(tabs), some might be hidden by the user. Excel sometime doesnt work in our way - In terms of unhinding, you shld do it manually only in excel by right clicking.
3. Also, some time particular select tab name should be renamed based on request.


So is that possible to create a excel Add in like this.

1. Icon for - Renaming the tabs based on the excel list in first sheet.
2.Icon for - Selecting the sheet (which shld have multiple selection option) and unhiding in one shot.
3. Icon  for - Popup to write your desired prefix or sufix on tab rename for selected tabs.

Please help me with this. Example attached here

How do you re-name the tabs, are they fixed names?

It varies, renaming can be listed on excel first tab and based on the all remaining tab shld be renamed. Is that possible

Why not have a list of existing names in one column & the new names in the next column?

Can you provide a small example workbook

Roy CoxGroup Finance ManagerCommented:
Why do you need to unhide the sheets? The code will rename the sheets even if they are hidden.

I 'm at work now, but at home I have a sheet manger userform which I can attach later.

Sure, the unhiding concept is for general excel user. Some time we get a dump of excel files with huge  hidden sheets. And basic excel option is to unhide sheet one by one. So I need something where user can do multiple selected and unhide at once.
