Hello everyone. I'm interested in trying to automate two process that we run each month: 1) rolling forward reconciliations (tabs) and 2) rolling forward schedules (workbooks). And I wanted to see if anyone has created VBA to accomplish these tasks.

1) Rolling forward reconciliations. Each month the previous month's tab is copied and renamed to the current month eg when rolling March to April = 0316 to 0416. Then all of the links and formulas on the newly created tab are updated to pull from the previous months tab by finding and replacing all Find: 0216 and Replace With: 0316.

We have several workbooks that we do these same steps on each month.

2) Rolling forward Workbooks. This is similar to the above expect each month we roll forward the entire file.

Copy this file:
Q:\Accounting\2016 Fiscal Year\2016 FAC\ISummaries\ISummaries - 0316
Rename to "0416":
Q:\Accounting\2016 Fiscal Year\2016 FAC\ISummaries\ISummaries - 0416

Any thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance for your help.
