This portion of code produces the following error if the sheet is hidden

run time error 1004 Copy method of worksheet class failed

Code:
ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1).Copy

I'd much prefer to keep the sheet hidden and still execute the code. The error still results if I include the sheet name
Code:
ThisWorkbook.Sheets("BASE").Copy

Any ideas?

thanks for looking

Try this:
Code:
Sub foo()
    ThisWorkbook.Sheets("BASE").Visible = True
    ThisWorkbook.Sheets("BASE").Copy
    ThisWorkbook.Sheets("BASE").Visible = False
End Sub
