Close workbook at certain sheet count


Board Regular

Hi all

I have a macro which imports text files to new sheets, but to stop the file from becoming too large, I want it to stop the import macro when the sheet count reaches 8, then open a new file and restart it.

Heres my current code

Sub Selection()
Set Rng = Tabelle2.Range("A3:A65536")
Dim b As Object
Dim SaveFile As String

SaveFile = "\Comparisons" & ".xls"
Application.SheetsInNewWorkbook = 1
Set NewBook = Workbooks.Add

For Module1.i = 3 To 15000
ThisFile = Tabelle2.Cells(i, 1).Value
        If Tabelle2.Cells(Module1.i, 1).Font.Bold = True Then
            Set NewSheet = Worksheets.Add
            With NewSheet
   = ThisFile
            End With
            If Tabelle2.Cells(Module1.i, 1).Font.Bold = True Then Call Importselect
            End If
        If ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Count = 8 Then 
                With NewBook
                .SaveAs Filename:=ThisWorkbook.Path & SaveFile
                End With
                ActiveWorkbook.Close False
        End If

Next i

End Sub
It functions correctly, but won't stop at 8, nor will it save or close the file afterwards. How can i change this to stop at sheet 8, save it, open a new sheet and continue from where it left off?

Shouldn't this:

If ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Count = 8 Then


If NewBook.Sheets.Count = 8 Then
