    copy all sheets from one workbook to the workbook running the macro

    Hi All,

    I am having an issue and keep getting the same error on all the codes I come up with for this problem.

    Basically I am trying to write a macro that will copy all the sheets from a named workbook and transfer them to the workbook I am running the macro in, I have tried using ActiveWorkbook, ThisWorkbook and defining and naming the workbook I am currently running the macro in. I keep getting
    Run-time error '9'
    Subscript out of range

    Here is my current code.

    If anyone could amend/suggest another code to do what I am looking for that would be great guys!

    Hi Norie,

    I used the modified code

    The line Set TrianglesWB = Workbooks("Triangles_All.xls") seems to be causing the error

    Re: copy all sheets from one workbook to the workbook running the macro

    Do you have a workbook called 'Triangles_All.xls' open when you run the code?

    If you don't, or the name is even slightly out, then you would get the error you decribe.

    Re: copy all sheets from one workbook to the workbook running the macro

    Hi Norie,

    Thanks for your code it does do what Im looking for! I was stupidly not opening the file in the same excel window and it wasnt working! Well its all a learning experience haha

    Im going to be cheeky and ask one more thing if I may, is there any way to get the sheets to copy in after the sheet I already have in the target workbook? They currently paste in before it. Basically I have one control sheet which does all the work and I want the other sheets to paste in after that sheet if possible?

    Thanks again! Much appreciated!

    The code I posted should put the copied sheet after all the existing sheets in the target workbook.

    Re: copy all sheets from one workbook to the workbook running the macro

    It seems to put them before and Im not sure what part of the code could be amended to rectify this?

    Thanks for any help
