Hi, I am writing a macro saved in a workbook. The problem is the macro contains the worksheet name I created the macro on, but the next person who uses this macro may name the worksheet something else when the new report is copied into the workbook. What can I put here in the worksheet name that will just allow this macro to run regardless of what the sheet is named? Like a generic name? As you can see below, this tab was called "Inventory Valuation Sep 202 (2)" but next time the report is copied over it may be called something else and then this macro won't work. Thank you!

Change the name to "ActiveSheet" without the inverted commas
VBA Code:
Activeworkbook.ActiveSheet.Sort...
AND you don't need the Activeworkbook
VBA Code:
ActiveSheet.Sort...
