In Excel, we often need to copy a worksheet to another workbook without formulas with VBA. We can use both the context menu and VBA for this. Today, we will discuss how to copy a worksheet to another workbook using VBA. We will use our VBA codes to copy single sheets and multiple worksheets.
Copy Excel Worksheet to Another Workbook without Formulas Using VBA: 2 Examples
1. Apply VBA to Copy Single Excel Sheet to Another Workbook without Formulas
In this example, we will apply VBA to copy a single sheet to another workbook without formulas. To explain easily, we will use a dataset that contains the sales amount of two months of some sellers and increase the percentage. In this dataset, we have used the SUBTOTAL Function to calculate the Total sales after each month.
Here, if you select Cell D11 in the dataset, you will see the formula with SUBTOTAL function in the formula bar. The same goes for Cell C11. We will try to copy this worksheet to another workbook without these formulas.
Let’s follow the steps below to learn this example.
- In the first place, go to the Developer tab.
- Select the Visual Basic option.
- After that, the Visual Basic window will open.
- Now, go to Insert and select Module.
- Then, type the VBA code in the Module window.
Sub CopyToAnotherBook() ActiveSheet.Copy Cells.Copy Range("A1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues Application.CutCopyMode = False End Sub
Here, the VBA code first copies the entire active sheet and then pastes the values of the sheet to another Excel sheet.
- Click the Save icon or press Ctrl + S to save the code.
- Next, press the F5 key to run the code.
- To run the code from the ribbon, go to the Developer tab and select Macros.
- After that, select Run from the Macro window.
- Finally, the desired will be copied in another workbook and there will be no formulas in Cells C11 & D11.
2. Copy Multiple Sheets without Formulas to New Workbook with VBA
In the previous example, we demonstrated how to copy a single sheet without formulas. Here, we will try to copy multiple sheets to a new workbook. For that purpose, we are using three sheets in our workbook. Sheet 1 contains “Dataset Overview”, Sheet 2 has a Single Sheet example, and Sheet 3 stores Multiple Sheets of examples and some formulas.
Pay attention to the steps below to understand this example.
- In the beginning, go to the Developer tab and select Visual Basic.
- Then, go to Insert and select Module.
- Next, type the VBA code in the Module window.
Sub MultipleSheets() Dim newwkb As Workbook Dim wksht As Worksheet Set newwkb = Workbooks.Add(xlWBATWorksheet) ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Copy After:=newwkb.Worksheets(1) Application.DisplayAlerts = False newwkb.Worksheets(1).Delete Application.DisplayAlerts = True For Each wksht In newwkb.Worksheets wksht.UsedRange.Value = wksht.UsedRange.Value Next End Sub
Here, the VBA code first copies the multiple sheets from our workbook to another workbook. Then, paste the values using a For Each loop in all sheets.
- Press Ctrl + S to save the code or click the Save icon.
- Now, select Macros in the Developer tab.
- After that, hit Run from the Macro window.
- You will see the copied sheets in another workbook without formulas.
