Hi There,

I have a consolidation sheet that uses Data Condolidation to sum 5 sheets.

This works fine and I have a button that is attached to this macro...

ActiveSheet.Unprotect
Range("B7").Select
Selection.Consolidate Sources:=Array( _
"'Accounts Analysis (2)'!R7C2:R71C9" _
, _
"'Accounts Analysis (3)'!R7C2:R71C9" _
, _
"'Accounts Analysis (4)'!R7C2:R71C9" _
, _
"'Accounts Analysis (5)'!R7C2:R71C9" _
, _
"'Accounts Analysis (6)'!R7C2:R71C9" _
), Function:=xlSum, TopRow:=False, LeftColumn:=False, CreateLinks:= _
False

The users would like to be able to change the names of the sheets that are used in the aggregation. If they change the sheet name the consolidation macro won't work.

Is there a way I can still use data consolidation and still let the users change the sheet names?
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.
