    Don't know if it is possible with your data to end up with long sheet names but you might want to consider a Left(.... , 31) with your function that creates valid sheet names as text length is also a restriction with them.
    Hope this helps, good luck.

    Cheers.

    Of course in theory that could still cause further problems if two of your cell values were, say, ..
    This is an overly long sheet name 1
    This is an overly long sheet name 2

    .. because, although different, the left 31 characters are the same.
    Hope this helps, good luck.
