Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

You can use VBA to change the sheet name to match a particular cell's value. You can use a formula to extract a sheet's name into the cell. Who's the leader and who's the follower? Does the sheet name determine the cell's contents? Or does the cell's contents determine the sheet's name?

sheet name

What I want to do is have the sheet name automatically update to be equal to a certain cell. Is that possible??

thanks

Yes, how familiar are you with VBA? Have you dabbled in the VBE (Visual Basic Editor) some? Or this would be completely new?

I have just dabbled in VBE but I was mostly curious if it was possible on the excel front end.

No, you cannot have a cell's value update a worksheet name without VBA. Still interested?
