Excel/Copy active worksheet to new workbook


Hi !
I simply want to copy the active worksheet within the active workbook to a sheet named Sheet1 in a new workbook.
Is there any easy vba code for this?
Thanks very much.

Activesheet.copy   ' copies the activesheet to a new workbook

So when that command executes, the copy of the sheet is placed in a new single sheet workbook.  That new workbook is not the activeworkbook  and the copy of the sheet is now the activesheet.  It will have the same name as the original, so you can rename it to Sheet1.  Here is the whole code

Sub copytoNewWorkbook()
ActiveSheet.Name = "Sheet1"
End Sub
