Hi All

Sorry, I have to ask for a bit of help here.

I have a daily report downloaded which gives a worksheet name of 'report123456' but the numbers are randomly generated. In order for my subsequent macro to work, I think I need to either:
a) change the worksheet name to 'Data'
b) have a way whereby the sheet is active, no matter what the random numbers are

If somebody could help it would be appreciated.

Many thanks
Small Paul.

you could reference the index of the sheet i.e. if it is the first sheet it would be "Sheets(1)" in VBA.
