    Macro to switch to previous workbook, copy data, and go back to original wkb and paste

    Hi,
    I'm trying to figure out a macro to jump from the workbook I am in to another one and copy data, go back to original and paste data. FYI, these workbooks are in two separate sessions of excel and also the workbook that i want it to jump to an copy data from changes each time.

    Below is my code and i have issues when it gets thisworkbook.activate. I need to tell it to go back to the orginal workbook (which is the one that changes each time FYI)
