Excel/Copy three sheets to a new file


Hi Jan,

Hope you are doing good.

Long back I had asked for you a code to copy two sheets to a new file and you had given me the below code, now I need a modification, I need to copy three sheets instead of two.

Sub CopyAndSaveSheets()
  Dim lCt As Long
  For lCt = 1 To ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Count Step 2
      Worksheets(Array(ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(lCt).Name, ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(lCt + 1).Name)).Copy
      ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(lCt).Name
End Sub

Best Regards,

If you want to copy sheets in sets of three (assuming the file contains a multiple of three sheets, so 3, 6, 9, 12, ... then this is the code you need:

Sub CopyAndSaveSheets()
  Dim lCt As Long
  For lCt = 1 To ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Count Step 3
      Worksheets(Array(ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(lCt).Name, ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(lCt + 1).Name, _
         ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(lCt + 2).Name)).Copy
      ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(lCt).Name
End Sub
