The very last if statement in the code moves value BB41 to BB37 to the new sheet and it stopped working when i went into the new month of may, got me stumped, my sheet number is only up to 57. Hope someone can help?

Sub add_new_sheet()
Dim maxnumber As Integer
Dim maxdate As Date

'scan sheet names and find maximum sheet number and maximum date
maxnumber = 0
maxdate = "01 jan 1970"
templatefound = False

strg = Sheets(sheetno).Name
If UCase(strg) = "TEMPLATE" Then templatefound = True
openbracketpos = InStr(1, strg, "(")
If openbracketpos > 7 And Right(strg, 1) = ")" And UCase(Left(strg, 3)) <> "TEM" Then
numberstrg = Right(strg, Len(strg) - openbracketpos)
numberstrg = Left(numberstrg, Len(numberstrg) - 1)
If Abs(numberstrg) > maxnumber Then
maxnumber = Abs(numberstrg)
previousname = strg
End If
datestrg = Left(strg, openbracketpos - 2)
datemonth = Abs(Left(datestrg, InStr(1, datestrg, "-")))
dateday = Abs(Mid(datestrg, InStr(1, datestrg, "-") + 1, Len(datestrg) - (InStr(1, datestrg, "-") + 3)))
dateyear = Abs(Right(datestrg, 2))
If dateyear > 50 Then dateyear = 1900 + dateyear Else dateyear = 2000 + dateyear
If maxdate < DateSerial(dateyear, datemonth, dateday) Then maxdate = DateSerial(dateyear, datemonth, dateday)
End If
Next

'if no sheet found with valid date and number then fail routine

'if no template sheet was seen in the scan then fail routine
