    Extracting Data to another Workbook

    I am currentyly using VB to extract some data sets to another tab in the same workbook. I would like to extract the same data to a new workbook instead upon running the macro. The code I am currently using is:

    Sub RunModel()

    Dim Events As Range
    '
    '
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    Set Events = Worksheets("Inputs").Range("L41:L90")
    Worksheets("Results").Range("A5:FX5004").Clear
    Worksheets("Results").Range("A5009:FX10010").Clear

    y = -100

    For x = 1 To 50


    If Events(x) = "N" Then
    GoTo 10
    Else

    Worksheets("Data").Range("D5").Value = x

    Calculate

    y = y + 100

    Range("RResults").Copy
    Worksheets("Results").Cells(y + 5, 1).Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
    xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

    Range("FResults").Copy
    Worksheets("Results").Cells(5009 + y, 1).Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
    xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

    End If

    10 Next x

    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

    End Sub

    this will create a new workbook - then refer to this name when you do your pastes


    Workbooks.Add
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:= _
    "C:\put your file name with directory here.xls"
    not a professional, just trying to assist.....

    this is what you would do to clear contents in another workbook

    I'm still receiving an error when trying to copy this bit.



    Range("RResults").Copy
    Workbooks("C:\Summaries\Summary.xls").Worksheets("Results").Cells(y + 5, 1).Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
    xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

    Try this, if you are using the workbooks way


    Range("RResults").Copy
    Workbooks("Summary").Worksheets("Results").Cells(y + 5, 1).Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
    xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

    I get "selected method of range class failed"

    Do I need to specify a directory when using this function, or does the Workbook need to be open to copy results?

    Thanks again.

    you either need to have the macro open the destination files, or to create the destination file before you execute the copy and paste

    I have created the new worksheet manually and I am receiving range errors (9) in the paste section. Not really sure if its syntax or what.




    Sub RunModel()

    Dim Events As Range
    '
    '
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    Set Events = Workbooks("Data").Worksheets("Inputs").Range("L41:L90")



    y = -100

    For x = 1 To 50


    If Events(x) = "N" Then
    GoTo 10
    Else

    Workbooks("Data.xls").Worksheets("ENGINE").Range("D5").Value = x

    Calculate

    y = y + 100

    Range("RResults").Copy
    Workbooks("C:\Summaries\Summary.xls").Worksheets("Results").Cells(y + 5, 1).Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
    xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False


    Range("TResults").Copy
    Workbooks("C:\Summaries\Summary.xls").Worksheets("Results").Cells(5009 + y, 1).Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
    xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

    End If

    10 Next x

    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

    End Sub

    Here is an example:
    This code is in workbook called "test2"
    It copies the first row in sheet1 and pastes it to the first empty row in workbook(test).Sheets(Sheet1).ColumnA

    if workbook test is not open it will open it
