How Do I save a sheet seperately from the main workbook?
Posted: 20 Sep 02 (Edited 28 Nov 02)
This question comes up fairly regularly. Wherever there are large reports and slow networks, someone will be asked to produce a summary. Most often, the summary sheet is incorporated into the existing workbook and then copied and pasted using the range copy method ie
Determine range to copy
open new workbook
paste into new workbook
save new workbook as summary
I discovered this shortcut whilst answering a question regarding a similar situation and found that you can use the copy worksheet method to great effect.
This copies the worksheet in its entirity to a new workbook (automatically)
Hence, some sample code for anyone wanting to save just a single sheet from their large workbook would be :
activeworkbook.saveas filename:="Enter Path and Name Here"
This will copy "Sheet1" to a new workbook, give it a name, save it and close it
Personally I'm chuffed that I found this 'cos it saves time, looks neat and involves less coding than would normally be needed
