    Couple of Advanced questions (Excel 2000 SP3)

    1. An easy one (I think) - I was under the impression that when you right-click one of the worksheet tabs at the bottom of the Excel screen, and choose Insert | Worksheet | OK, that you'd get 1 new worksheet added to your workbook. However, mine is adding 3 new sheets and I can't figure out why. Is this some sort of setting?
    2. A little more difficult - Is there a way to rename a worksheet tab automatically. Meaning: Can I set up a spreadsheet so that when information is entered in a particular cell, that sheet will automatically be renamed with the information in that cell? I am setting up an end user workbook, and each worksheet will be for a particular patient in our practice. Since the end users are not as "excel friendly", the less key strokes the better, and I don't know that they know how to rename worksheet tabs, etc.
    3. Finally - is there a way to automatically resort the worksheets alphabetically. Is it possible that when, for example, the user closed the workbook, Excel would auto sort the worksheets at close?

    1. The number of sheets inserted is equal to the number of sheets that was selected.

    2. See the thread starting at <post#=306914>post 306914</post#> for examples of code that renames worksheets automatically based on the contents of a cell.

    3. See Sorting Worksheets In A Workbook on Chip Pearson's website for a macro that sorts worksheets. You could call this macro from a Worksheet_BeforeSave event handler in ThisWorkbook.
