    Question VBA: Copy and Past between different instances

    Hi, Everyone!

    I'm from Brazil and this is my first post. Sorry for start asking for help, but I already searched everywhere, without any solution for my problem. Maybe you can help me.

    The question is:

    I bought a software (with a large database), and its output is a simple Excel workbook, not saved anywhere (no path), named genericly "Book1", that simply pop up on my screen.

    Everytime I ask the software for this output, I need to copy the content of this workbook and paste into another workbook, a mother-workbook, as I named it, to consolidate all the data.

    Once I have to repeat this action dozens times a day, I thought it would be a great idea create a VBA code to automate this task. So... I made a very simple one:

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    The problem is... Each time the software output a new workbook, it seems that is created a new instance inside the Excel, for wich my macro doesn't reach. I mean, I run de code, but nothing happens, because my mother-workbook doesn't find the generic, unsaved and located in another excel instance "Book1".

    If I open the mother-workbook after the output is opened, OK, the code works, because both are in the same instance. But as I need to keep the mother-workbook open all the time, I can't do this. I don't want to save each new output file either. It would take me a lot of time.

    I'm using the 2016 version of Excel, but already tried the 2010 as well. My OS is Windows 10 Pro.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks a lot!
