Hi,

I am experiencing a very frustrating issue in my workbook.

When I attempt to make a copy of a spreadsheet I receive the following error;

"The name "fgsadfadsf" already exists. Click Yes to use that version of the name, or click No to rename the version of "fgsadfadsf" you're moving or copying."

If I click yes the worksheet won't copy & the message pops up again, if I click No & rename the worksheet the message pops up again. The only way I can copy the worksheet is to keep clicking Yes (takes about 20 to 30 clicks) & eventually the worksheet will copy itself.

Has anyone experienced this problem & have a solution??

Many thanks in advance.
