Automatically update worksheet name



Is there a way to change the names of worksheets automatically? I use Excel
2007 for invoicing, but it's really a pain to have to rename each sheet to
reflect my invoice number.

Is there a formula or solution for this?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Const WS_RANGE As String = "H5" '<== change to cell with invoice number

On Error GoTo ws_exit
Application.EnableEvents = False

If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range(WS_RANGE)) Is Nothing Then
Me.Name = Target.Value
End If

Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

'This is worksheet event code, which means that it needs to be
'placed in the appropriate worksheet code module, not a standard
'code module. To do this, right-click on the sheet tab, select
'the View Code option from the menu, and paste the code in.

its format/shape/size/used characters is "legitimate" for a sheets name -
put the following Event-Macro into the ThisWorkBook Module:
