Default Prompt for tab name and then prompt for number of iterations of ta

Need code to prompt users for the name of the sheet to copy and then prompt
for the number of copies of the sheet they want. I have dinked around with
this for a while and am really missing something

Thanks

bert_lady,

Utilize the help documentation. Search "InputBox" and read the
documentation on Application.InputBox Method and InputBox Function. Also,
search "Worksheets.Add" and read the documentation for Worksheets.Add Method.
After you prompt the user for the worksheet name, you should validate that
the worksheet exists before prompting for the number of copies.

Start with the help documentation. If you are still having trouble, post
your code to the thread with any subsequent questions.

Best,

Matthew Herbert
