vba – Excel worksheet.name with two cell value criteria

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

My issue today is trying to get a new worksheet name to have two different cell.values when being named.

The current code takes the data from one tab and creates different worksheets based on what is in cell range K7. So each tab is populated with the data based on the K7 column. Currently I have the new worksheet names set at

wsnew.name = "NIIN " + cell.value

Which does its job and brings back tabs labeled “NIIN xxxxxxxx” .

I also have another column titled ‘Sample’ with range starting at A7.

The values for this column are all the same if it has the same K7 values.

Is there a way to get VBA to find the cell value from both A7 and K7 and add it the worksheet name?

Ideally I would like it to be something like this

wsnew.name = "Sample " + cell.value (a7 range) + " NIIN " + cell.value (k7 range)

Adding the code provided gives me worksheet names such as “Sample xxxxxx NIIN “

The xxxxx should actually be infront of the NIIN so that it reads “Sample….. NIIN xxxxxx”

WSNew.Name = "Sample " & cell.Offset(0, 10).Value  & " NIIN " &  cell.Value

This is the code i added and it switched the format to “Sample NIIN xxxxxx”

Which works well however i am still not getting the value after Sample.

I have tried the cell.offset (O,-10).value however that gives me an error


The code below is what comes before the worksheet naming

Set ws2 = Worksheets.Add

    With ws2
        'first we copy the Unique data from the filter field to ws2
        My_Table.ListColumns(FieldNum).Range.AdvancedFilter _
                Action:=xlFilterCopy, _
                CopyToRange:=.Range("A1"), Unique:=True

        'loop through the unique list in ws2 and filter/copy to a new sheet
        Lrow = .Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
        For Each cell In .Range("A2:A" & Lrow)

            'Filter the range
            My_Table.Range.AutoFilter Field:=FieldNum, Criteria1:="=" & _
                                                                  Replace(Replace(Replace(cell.Value, "~", "~~"), "*", "~*"), "?", "~?")

            CCount = 0
            On Error Resume Next
            CCount = My_Table.ListColumns(1).Range.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Areas(1).Cells.Count
            On Error GoTo 0

            If CCount = 0 Then
                MsgBox "There are more than 8192 areas for the value : " & cell.Value _
                     & vbNewLine & "It is not possible to copy the visible data to a new worksheet." _
                     & vbNewLine & "Tip: Sort your data before you use this macro.", _
                       vbOKOnly, "Split in worksheets"

Original sheet with the data and micro

What the code does when cell.value comes after & ” NIIN ”

I hope these pictures help with the question.

As you can see from the pictures when the macro is clicked, it creates many sheets based on the criteria in K7 which is the NIIN field.

As you can also see the value under EY Sample is what i want in the output after “Sample…”

So that it reads (for example) “Sample 5 NIIN 1212”


This is the entire code. I am sure there is a much better way to have written it out. I used the basic knowledge and experience that i have. Many apologies for the headache this is creating

How to&Answers:

In VBA you concatenate strings with the & character. Second, to access column K when you’re looping through column A, you can just do a simple .Offset(row,col).

So your line of code becomes:

WSNew.Name = "Sample " & cell.Value & " NIIN " & cell.Offset(0,10).Value
'SheetName =  Sample   +     A7     +   NIIN   +          K7
