Hi,

Is it possible to make a reference in a cell to the sheet's name?

I use a workbook with lots of sheets and i have to use their name inside the respective sheets.

thanks,

Emilio

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

Would something like this work?

Code:
Function SheetName()

   SheetName = ActiveSheet.Name

End Function

This is how you can pickup a sheet's name in a cell -

=MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1),1)+1,LEN(CELL("filename",A1))-FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1),1))

Then you can always use INDIRECT function along with concatenate or address to create a range and use it in the formula. Do you need help with that ?

=CELL("filename",A1)

tells you the "filename" of cell A1

ex:C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\[Test.xls]Sheet1

the rest is just cropping that string to say just "Sheet1" by searching for "]"
