How to Change the Name of an Excel Worksheet


Microsoft Excel is spreadsheet software that comes with the Microsoft Office Suite. When you open a new spreadsheet, called a "workbook" in Excel, multiple "worksheets" are opened at the bottom of the program window. These are automatically labeled "sheet 1," "sheet 2" and "sheet 3." If you are creating a workbook with multiple worksheets, you'll want to rename the worksheets to something more descriptive so you can distinguish between them more easily.

  • Launch Microsoft Excel by clicking "Start," "All Programs," "Microsoft Office" and "Microsoft Excel."

  • Click "File" and then "Open" to select an Excel file from your computer.

  • Click on a worksheet tab you want to rename. These are located at the bottom of the spreadsheet.

  • Click the "Format" button at the top of Excel and select "Rename Sheet." Alternatively, you can right-click the worksheet tab and select "Rename."

  • Enter a new descriptive name and press the "Enter" key.
