This part of the tutorial covers creating a drop down list on a different worksheet within the same workbook.
To use data located on a different worksheet you must create a named range for that data.

Tip: If there are worksheets removed or added, you need to go to A1and press Enter key then rag the autofill handle again. Right click at the sheet name of Index, select View Code from context menu. In the popping window, copy and paste below VBA code into it. Private Sub Worksheet_Activate() 'Updateby20150305 Dim x Sheet As Worksheet Dim x Row As Integer Dim calc State As Long Dim scr Update State As Long Application.
If you want to create a dynamic list of worksheet names which can link to each sheet, you can use VBA code.1.
This way it will be presentable and it's easy to update your source cells.
Excel has a very powerful feature providing for a dropdown select list in a cell, reflecting data from a named region.

The production sheet I'm using is complex enough I don't want to try and test the . forces a full calculation of all data, not only in a single Worksheet or Workbook, but in all open workbooks!

Hello, How can I automatically create and name worksheets in a workbook based on a list that exists in another sheet "Summary" in the workbook? Mind you, this list will vary from workbook to workbook. All of my formulas for my TOTALS page point to Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.
Do you have some code already compiled to perform this? Now that I have this macro which worked beautifully my formulas are jacked up. End Sub That way the Macro would be able to name the Sheet and also update other information from the List.
Note: the tutorial instructions do not include formatting steps for the worksheet.
