VBA Function To Determine If A Worksheet Exists In A Workbook

VBA Function To Determine If A Worksheet Exists In A Workbook

What This VBA Code Does

The following VBA macro code provides a function that tests if a worksheet exists in the ActiveWorkbook. Simply feed the function the name of the worksheet you would like to test and the function will output either a True/False result.

This is a great way to prevent errors with larger pieces of macro code if your routines involve worksheet names that are static or require user inputs.

VBA Code:

Private Function WorksheetExists(ByVal WorksheetName As String) As Boolean
'PURPOSE: Determine if a worksheet name exists in the workbook
'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com/the-code-vault

On Error Resume Next
  WorksheetExists = (ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(WorksheetName).Name <> "")
On Error GoTo 0

End Function
