    Copying one sheet to multiple workbooks

    Hi,
    I'm new to this forum so hopefully someone can help!

    I have a sheet in an excel document, and I want this sheet to be copied to multiple workbooks (which aren't opened yet).

    All of the workbooks will be in the one folder, but there will be 200+ so it would be too manual to open each one and copy the sheet into each one individually.

    Has anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Cathal

    arlu1201,
    Thanks for that code, it works great! Just one thing is happening, the sheet that I am copying has cells referencing to cells in other sheets within the workbook, but when the template is copied to another workbook, it still references to the original workbook, not the one it's in?

    Any ideas why this would be happening?

    Re: Copying one sheet to multiple workbooks

    The sheet is being copied hence it is linked to those other sheets. You can change the links to reference the current file but since you have 200+ workbooks i think its better the code does it. Let me find a way to get that inserted in the code. So the macro will copy the sheet and then change the link in the formulae from the old workbook to the new one. I knew a way to do this in 2003, will find it in 2007 and implement it in the code. I will give you the code shortly.
