Hello. I am using a Macro to create a worksheet that contains a table. The name of the table is PayData, however since this table is on every worksheet (individual employees) Excel gives it a name such as PayData28. How can I use the below VBA code to identify the PayData table that is on the worksheet properly?
VBA Code:
Sub AddRow()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Dim tbl As ListObject
Set tbl = ws.ListObjects("A9")
'add a row at the end of the table
tbl.ListRows.Add
'add a row as the fifth row of the table (counts the headers as a row)
End Sub

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

If you only have one table on each sheet, you could use
VBA Code:
Set tbl = ws.ListObjects(1)

Does the pay table always start in the same cell on every sheet?

In that case you can use
VBA Code:
Set tbl = Range("A9").ListObject
