Renaming Spreadsheets or Workbooks

Note: This procedure describes how to rename a spreadsheet page. If you want to rename the entire workbook use File | Save As, and enter a name for the book; this will create a new workbook, leaving the original one intact.

If the spreadsheet contains a single page the new name will not be visible until you add another page; when there is more than one page the names are displayed in tabs at the top of each page.

The sheet names must be unique within a book, and can be a maximum of 16 characters in length. A sheet name can contain any characters including spaces.

  1. Select Spread | Book | Rename.
    Double-click the tab of the spreadsheet you want to rename.
  2. Enter a new name for the sheet then click OK.
