# Sort Worksheet Tabs - Ascending or Descending Order

Author:

This macro will sort all of the worksheets in the current workbook. It can sort in ascending or descending order. This will work to sort by number and or also alphabetically. This type of sort is conducted through a bubble sort type.

This is ideal if you work with a large number of tabs or wroksheets in excel documents and you need to put them in order; this is especially helpful if you have to import or receive often messy workbooks or excel files.
