Worksheet.Copy method (Excel)
Copies the sheet to another location in the current workbook or a new workbook.
expression.Copy (Before, After)
expression A variable that represents a Worksheet object.
|Before||Optional||Variant||The sheet before which the copied sheet will be placed. You cannot specify Before if you specify After.|
|After||Optional||Variant||The sheet after which the copied sheet will be placed. You cannot specify After if you specify Before.|
If you don't specify either Before or After, Microsoft Excel creates a new workbook that contains the copied Worksheet object. The newly created workbook holds the Application.ActiveWorkbook property and contains a single worksheet. The single worksheet retains the Name and CodeName properties of the source worksheet. If the copied worksheet held a worksheet code sheet in a VBA project, that is also carried into the new workbook.
An array selection of multiple worksheets can be copied to a new blank Workbook object in a similar manner.
Source and Destination must be in the same Excel.Application instance, otherwise it will raise a runtime error '1004': No such interface supported, if something like
Sheet1.Copy objWb.Sheets(1) was used, or a runtime error '1004': Copy method of Worksheet class failed, if something like
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Copy objWb.Sheets(1) was used.
This example copies Sheet1, placing the copy after Sheet3.
This example first copies Sheet1 to a new blank workbook, and then saves and closes the new workbook.
Worksheets("Sheet1").Copy With ActiveWorkbook .SaveAs Filename:=Environ("TEMP") & "\New1.xlsx", FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook .Close SaveChanges:=False End With
This example copies worksheets Sheet1, Sheet2, and Sheet4 to a new blank workbook, and then saves and closes the new workbook.
Worksheets(Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet4")).Copy With ActiveWorkbook .SaveAs Filename:=Environ("TEMP") & "\New3.xlsx", FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook .Close SaveChanges:=False End With
