Renaming Column Headers in Excel using VBA

Renaming Column Headers in Excel using VBA

I'm manipulating tables in Excel using Visual basic and as part of the code I would like to remove all text enclosed in parentheses from column headers - see below



Ive been attempting to use the example formula using VBA but cannot make it work

CODE -->

=LEFT(D1,FIND(" (",D1)-1) 
and so forth for each header.

Thanks for any help.

Assuming that this sheet is the active sheet...


Dim r As Range

For Each r In Range([A1], [A1].End(xlToRight))
   With r
      .Value = Trim(Split(.Value, "(")(0))
   End With


glassesJust traded in my OLD subtlety...
for a NUance!tongue
