My code below performs a calculation correctly but if the user changes the name of the worksheet, it will fail.

Code:
Cells(2, 2).FormulaR1C1 = "=MAX(Apples!C,Oranges!RC[-1])"

I want to make it specific to the codename of the worksheet, the codename for Apples is wksApples

How can I change it?

Thanks

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

You can retrieve the tab name using the codename:

Code:
Cells(2, 2).FormulaR1C1 = "=MAX('" & wksapples.name & "'!C,Oranges!RC[-1])"

You can do the same with Oranges.
