    Resolved [RESOLVED] [Excel] Moving a Sheet To The End of Another Workbook

    Hello yet again!

    I am trying to move several sheets to the end of a separate workbook. I have the code working like this:
    vb Code:
    1. ActiveSheet.Move Before:=wb2copyTo.Sheets(wb2copyTo.Sheets.Count)

    I tried recording a macro and selcting (Move to end) in the list box when you move sheets to another workbook manually. The code looks like this:
    vb Code:
    1. Sheets(Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2")).Move Before:=Workbooks("Book1").Sheets(4)
    In this case the workbook I moved to only contained 3 sheets. So I tried this with my code:
    vb Code:
    1. ActiveSheet.Move Before:=wb2copyTo.Sheets(wb2copyTo.Sheets.Count + 1)
    But, a error msg is produced "Subscript Out of Range".
    Thus I have come to you guys... any advice? I need to be able to move to the end and it is not always the same number of sheets in the workbook I am moving to. I also tried using After:= but Excel doesn't recognize that. Thanks a bunch in advance!!

    Whoops.... false alarm! I must have mispelled 'after' last time I tried it... I just tried to double check it and it worked!

    Re: [RESOLVED] [Excel] Moving a Sheet To The End of Another Workbook

    Hi all,

    I am new to the forum and almost as new to VBA so please bear with me.

    I am trying to create a macro for something similar to this (move the current worksheet to another workbook), but there is a twist. The target workbook's name will change each month and year (ex. "September Patients 2008", "October Patients 2008")

    So far I have been able to work around this by using:

    Code:
    Workbooks.Open("C:\Documents and Settings\MGravely\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Shortcut to Patients 2008.xls.lnk")
    ...basically just specifying the path to a shortcut which I manually redirect at the beginning of each month by inputting the current month's filename.

    However, this does not work for moving the worksheet as this (butchered) code I attempted fails me:

    Code:
    ' Move current worksheet to this month's file
        ActiveSheet.Move Before:=Workbooks(Workbooks.Open("C:\Documents and Settings\MGravely\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Shortcut to Patients 2008.xls.lnk")).Sheets(1)
    Can someone tell me a way I might accomplish this by either

    (a) Specifying the target file using a variable which I could ammend to be named based on this month and year's date (which I am too new to know how to do, and have had little luck researching)

    OR

    (b) continuing to work around the issue by (i) opening the workbook using Workbooks.Open and the shortcut path (above) and then (ii) specifying that the active worksheet be moved to this target given that it would be the only active workbook that will match the wildcarded name "* Patients 2008.xls"

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
