Loop Through All Worksheets In All Currently Open Workbooks

Learn VBA Macros From Microsoft Excel Code Vault Snippets

What This VBA Code Does

This VBA macro code will cycle through each worksheet in every currently open Excel workbook on your computer.  This type of VBA loop is extremely useful when you need to perform a batch job.  In the below example code, the macro will insert today's date into Cell A1 of each worksheet tab.  

NOTE: The loop excludes any Personal Macro workbook that maybe open.  There is no need to exclude Excel add-in files as those are not picked up by the workbook class.

Sub LoopAllSheetsInOpenWorkbooks()

'PURPOSE: Add today's date into every currently open Excel workbook
'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com

Dim wb As Workbook
Dim sht As Worksheet

For Each wb In Application.Workbooks
  If wb.Name <> "PERSONAL.xlsb" Then
    For Each sht In wb.Worksheets
      'Add today's date to cell A1 of worksheet
        sht.Range("A1") = Date
    Next sht
  End If
Next wb

End Sub
