Default sheet tab = to cell content

i have a workbook with 12 sheets on it (workbook A). this workbook is
VERY linked to another workbook (workbook B).

workbook A has an area on each sheet for a date (cell C8) of each of
the 12 sheets. this date comes from workbook B. workbook B contains a
list of dates that increment weekly - i.e.
20-Feb-2007, 27-Feb-2007, 6-Mar-2007, etc.

these dates in workbook B will change (via. linkages to other cells in
workbook B).

i am trying to name the sheets/tabs in workbook A to these dates that
are in cell C8. I found a number of posts that allow you to do this,
however, the problem is that most of them relate to changing/focusing
on the cell (having to click in the cell & then it the tab value would
change).

I would like to know if this is possible to do as the file is open...
after you click on yes to that box that comes up when you have linked
workbooks. because the main issue is that someone may never click in
that date cell (C8) but the date could be changed in workbook B

if this is confusing, let me know.

One way:

this will run only one time after the workbook is opened (and after the
request to update). Put it in your ThisWorkbook code module:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim ws As Worksheet
On Error Resume Next
For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
ws.Name = ws.Cells(8, "C").Text
Next ws
End Sub

You need a calculate event.

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Me.Name = Range("C8").Value
End Sub

Right-click on sheet tab and "View Code"

Paste into that sheet module.

JE, thanks for the reply. your code has the same effect as Gord... it
allowed the dates on each of the sheets to be calculated on open, but
now i was hoping to get teh code for each sheet to be named after
these newly calculated dates (on open). it appeared that the tab
names on the workbook remained as the old dates and were not changed
to the newly calculated date. any help you can provide would be
greatly appreciated. thanks )

Well, for me the tab names changed. Are you sure the format in your cell
is correct for a tab name?

If the new date is being used already as a tab name, the code will fail
to rename a sheet with the same name.

What happens when you comment out the "On Error Resume Next" line?

Are you sure the In article
