i need to re-arrange the tabs so that it saves the PDF in that order....is there way to do this without manually moving the worksheets?

i tried re-arranging the sheet names in the vba array code, but that didnt seem to do the trickl

Arrange sheets in order desired in the ARRAY statement. Save the workbook. Then convert to PDF.
Re-arrange and save afterwards if desired.
