Create new workbooks

With the function below you can create new workbooks with up to 255 new worksheets. You can use the macro like this if you want to create a new workbook with 10 worksheets:
Set wb = NewWorkbook(10)

Function NewWorkbook(wsCount As Integer) As Workbook
' creates a new workbook with wsCount (1 to 255) worksheets
Dim OriginalWorksheetCount As Long
    Set NewWorkbook = Nothing
    If wsCount < 1 Or wsCount > 255 Then Exit Function
    OriginalWorksheetCount = Application.SheetsInNewWorkbook
    Application.SheetsInNewWorkbook = wsCount
    Set NewWorkbook = Workbooks.Add
    Application.SheetsInNewWorkbook = OriginalWorksheetCount
End Function

Re: Writing to the new workbook
Either like this:
Range("A1").Formula = "Some Text"
Range("A2").Formula = 9999

Or like this:
With Worksheets("MySheetName")
.Range("A1").Formula = "Some Text"
.Range("A2").Formula = 9999
End With

Writing to the new workbook
If I created the new workbook from a template that has named sheets, how do I refer to the sheets so I can write to them?

Re: How do I add a name to the new workbook?
This will define a workbook level name in the first sheet in the new workbook:
Set wb = NewWorkbook(10)
wb.Names.Add Name:="MyRange", RefersTo:=Range("A1:D10")
