# VBA to Copy Excel Worksheet to Another Workbook without Formulas

Get FREE Advanced Excel Exercises with Solutions!

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.

STEPS:

• 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.

STEPS:

• 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
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Copy After:=newwkb.Worksheets(1)
newwkb.Worksheets(1).Delete
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. ## Conclusion

1. Reply I have below code saving worskheet to PDF, I need same code but to save as excel file without formula, can you pls help:

Sub PDFActiveSheet()

Dim wsA As Worksheet
Dim wbA As Workbook
Dim strTime As String
Dim strName As String
Dim strPath As String
Dim strFile As String
Dim strPathFile As String
Dim myFile As Variant
On Error GoTo errHandler

Set wbA = ActiveWorkbook
Set wsA = ActiveSheet
strTime = Format(Now(), “yyyymmdd\_hhmm”)

‘get active workbook folder, if saved
strPath = wbA.Path
If strPath = “” Then
strPath = Application.DefaultFilePath
End If
strPath = strPath & “\”

‘replace spaces and periods in sheet name
strName = Replace(wsA.Name, ” “, “”)
strName = Replace(strName, “.”, “_”)

‘create default name for savng file
strFile = strName & “_” & “As of_” & strTime & “.pdf”
strPathFile = strPath & strFile

‘use can enter name and
‘ select folder for file
myFile = Application.GetSaveAsFilename _
(InitialFileName:=strPathFile, _
FileFilter:=”PDF Files (*.pdf), *.pdf”, _
Title:=”Select Folder and FileName to save”)

‘export to PDF if a folder was selected
If myFile “False” Then
wsA.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, _
FileName:=myFile, _
Quality:=xlQualityStandard, _
IncludeDocProperties:=True, _
IgnorePrintAreas:=False, _
openAfterPublish:=False
‘confirmation message with file info
MsgBox “PDF file has been created: ” _
& vbCrLf _
& myFile
End If

exitHandler:
Exit Sub
errHandler:
MsgBox “Could not create PDF file”
Resume exitHandler
End Sub

• Reply To use the same code but save it as an Excel file without formulas you need to have some minor changes in the code.
• To create a name for saving the new Excel file use the following code. Here, we changed the “.pdf” part to “.xlsx” as you want to save it as an Excel file instead of a PDF.

``````'create default name for saving file
strFile = strName & "_" & "As of_" & strTime & ".xlsx"
strPathFile = strPath & strFile``````

• Then, to select a folder for the file use the following code. Here, we changed the FileFilter to “Excel Files (*.xlsx), *.xlsx” for the Excel file.

``````'use can enter name and select folder for file
myFile = Application.GetSaveAsFilename _
(InitialFileName:=strPathFile, _
FileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xlsx), *.xlsx", _
Title:="Select Folder and FileName to save")``````

• Finally, save the worksheet as an Excel file using the following code. Here, we used the ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Value property which will copy only the values in the used range.

``````'save worksheet as Excel file if a folder was selected
If myFile <> False Then
wsA.Copy
With ActiveSheet.UsedRange
.Value = .Value
End With
Application.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=myFile, FileFormat:=51, CreateBackup:=False
Application.ActiveWorkbook.Close False
'confirmation message with file info
MsgBox "Excel file has been created: " & vbCrLf & myFile
End If``````

• After employing these changes, your code may look like the following one.

``````Sub Excel_file_without_formula()
Dim wsA As Worksheet
Dim wbA As Workbook
Dim strTime As String
Dim strName As String
Dim strPath As String
Dim strFile As String
Dim strPathFile As String
Dim myFile As Variant

On Error GoTo errHandler

Set wbA = ActiveWorkbook
Set wsA = ActiveSheet
strTime = Format(Now(), "yyyymmdd_hhmm")

'get active workbook folder, if saved
strPath = wbA.Path
If strPath = "" Then
strPath = Application.DefaultFilePath
End If
strPath = strPath & "\"

'replace spaces and periods in sheet name
strName = Replace(wsA.Name, " ", "")
strName = Replace(strName, ".", "_")

'create default name for saving file
strFile = strName & "_" & "As of_" & strTime & ".xlsx"
strPathFile = strPath & strFile

'use can enter name and select folder for file
myFile = Application.GetSaveAsFilename _
(InitialFileName:=strPathFile, _
FileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xlsx), *.xlsx", _
Title:="Select Folder and FileName to save")
'save worksheet as Excel file if a folder was selected
If myFile <> False Then
wsA.Copy
With ActiveSheet.UsedRange
.Value = .Value
End With
Application.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=myFile, FileFormat:=51, CreateBackup:=False
Application.ActiveWorkbook.Close False
'confirmation message with file info
MsgBox "Excel file has been created: " & vbCrLf & myFile
End If

exitHandler:
Exit Sub
errHandler:
MsgBox “Could not create Excel file”
Resume exitHandler
End Sub``````

Sub MultipleSheets()
Dim newwkb As Workbook
Dim wksht As Worksheet
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Copy After:=newwkb.Worksheets(1)
newwkb.Worksheets(1).Delete
For Each wksht In newwkb.Worksheets
wksht.UsedRange.Value = wksht.UsedRange.Value Next
End Sub

The above code works fine. But i want only specific sheets by name to be copied as values ( not all )

Hello, NARASIMHAN S

Please find the below code to get only specific sheets by name.

``````Sub CopySpecificSheetsAsValues()
Dim nwk As Workbook
Dim wsht As Worksheet
Dim sheetNames() As Variant
Dim sheetName As Variant
sheetNames = Array("File 1", "File 3", "File 4")
For Each wsht In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If IsInArray(wsht.Name, sheetNames) Then
wsht.Copy After:=nwk.Worksheets(1)
End If
Next wsht
nwk.Worksheets(1).Delete
For Each wsht In nwk.Worksheets
wsht.UsedRange.Value = wsht.UsedRange.Value
Next wsht
nwk.Close SaveChanges:=False
End Sub

Function IsInArray _
(valueToFind As Variant, arr As Variant) As Boolean

Dim element As Variant
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
For Each element In arr
If element = valueToFind Then
IsInArray = True
Exit Function
End If
Next element
ErrorHandler:
IsInArray = False
End Function
``````

Note:  Change the Path Id and the sheet name according to your convenience.  Advanced Excel Exercises with Solutions PDF
