Hi, I am looking for a way to save myself repeating the same task 100x by syncing several worksheets to the source worksheet, so that if I delete or add column's and rows the same happens on the other worksheets.
I know how to have cell values synced, I just need to know how to have row/column additions/deletions also synced it would save me a lot of time.
thank you in advance

If you want to sync not only cell values but also row/column additions/deletions across multiple worksheets, you can consider using Excel Tables (ListObjects). Excel Tables are dynamic ranges that automatically expand or contract as you add or delete rows and columns, making them a great choice for syncing data.
Here is a step-by-step guide:
Remember that features and capabilities can evolve with newer versions of Excel, and it's possible that Microsoft may introduce new features in subsequent releases. Always check the documentation or updates specific to your Excel version for the latest information.
Syncing Row/Column Additions and Deletions Using Excel Tables:
If you are comfortable with VBA, you can also create a more customized solution using VBA to handle the syncing process. However, using Excel Tables is often a simpler and user-friendly approach.
Here's a basic example of VBA code for syncing tables:
Vba Code is untested, please backup your file.
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim originalTable As ListObject
' Set the original table
Set originalTable = Worksheets("SourceSheet").ListObjects("TableName")
' Loop through other sheets
For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If ws.Name <> "SourceSheet" Then
' Delete existing table
On Error Resume Next
On Error GoTo 0
' Copy original table to other sheets
' Rename the table
ws.ListObjects(1).Name = "TableName"
Remember to replace "SourceSheet" and "TableName" with the actual names of your source sheet and table. Run this macro to sync the tables on all sheets. The text, steps and code were created with the help of AI.
