Is there any way to name a worksheet tab using a Defined Name?

Ie if the Defined Name is "Project A", then the macro/function will name the tab "Project A"?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Try placing this code in your ThisWorkbook module. It should rename your sheets as the value in A1 is changed.

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
On Error GoTo Rename_Error
If Target.Address = "$A$1" And Len(Target.Value) <> 0 Then _
Sh.Name = Target.Value
Exit Sub
Rename_Error:
MsgBox "The sheet could not be renamed. Please check " & vbCrLf & _
"that you did not use illegal characters."
End Sub
