How To Select All Worksheets In Excel To Group Them: 3 Methods

excel.jumanto.com - How To Select All Worksheets In Excel. When we want to hide sheets in excel, give them colors, duplicate or copy them, delete, and other options, we have to select them first. After we select the excel worksheets, then we can do what we want to do.

But to rename worksheets in excel, we have to do one by one after select all worksheets because the name of every excel sheet has to be different.

We can't use the same name in two or more sheets in excel, in one workbook.

When we try to rename an excel sheet with the existing name, there will appear a notification: "cannot rename a sheet to the same name as another sheet, a referenced object library or a workbook referenced by visual basic".

When the notification like that appears in the excel workbook, but we can't see the excel sheet that has used that name, it maybe has been hidden with very hidden sheets.
