i was tyring to write a code to sort the sheets in ascending order.
this is what i got but all it does is put all the sheets with which name starts by a 1 in front then put the other one in ascending order.

EG.

1, 10, 11, 2, 21, 22, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Code:
``Dim i As Integer, j As Integer, h As Integerh = Sheets.CountOn Error GoTo ErrorTrap:For i = 1 To h - 1    For j = i + 1 To h        If Sheets(j).Name < Sheets(i).Name Then        Sheets(j).Move Before:=Sheets(i)        End If    Next    NextErrorTrap:``

### Excel Facts

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

If all the sheets have numeric names then maybe try something like this...
If CInt(Sheets(j).Name) < CInt(Sheets(i).Name) Then
