I've written the following to copy Text Box 1 from one tab to another within a workbook. This works fine but when I want to delete the Text Box 1 its no longer that name, anyone know how I can keep the name as Text Box 1 after copying it ?

Sub PBTEN()
Sheets("PB").Select
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Text Box 1").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Period Update").Select
Range("I28").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Range("A1").Select
End Sub

Works fine for me if the textbox name is correct to start with:


ActiveSheet.Shapes("Text Box 1").Select

SHOULD BE

ActiveSheet.Shapes("TextBox1").Select

Text Box 1 with spaces is the name that Excel gives the text box & if you take out the spaces the macro doesn't work full stop.

I have found a way round by creating a blank text box & using this.
