any ideas mucho appreciated

hi try this one!
this assumes that the name of the new sheet created is stored in A1.


<font face=Courier New><SPAN style="color:#00007F">Sub</SPAN> CopyAndRename()
<SPAN style="color:#00007F">On</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Error</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">GoTo</SPAN> owari
    <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Set</SPAN> oldsheet = ActiveSheet
    <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Set</SPAN> newsheet1 = Sheets.Add
    oldsheet.Select
    Cells.Select
    Selection.Copy
    newsheet1.Paste
    Sheets(newsheet1.Name).Name = oldsheet.Range("a1").Value
owari:
<SPAN style="color:#00007F">End</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Sub</SPAN></FONT>

hi!
try this.
range("A1").value
should be complete.
worksheets("sheet1").range("A1").value
you might end up the active sheet containing no or wrong value in A1.
but if you want it to make the new sheet the active sheet after copying, call
newsheet1.select.
