I'm collecting data on the first worksheet by iterating over all of my worksheets in a loop. A list of worksheets that are defined by their names in a list on the first worksheet is what I now wish to omit.
I could do so one by one as follows:
dim ws as worksheet
For each ws in ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If ws.Name <> "Sheet1" and ws.name <> "Sheet2"
and so on.
BUT Since the data will change in the future I don't want to edit this code every time the "exclude-list" changes.
