Hi,

I'm new to VBA so apologies for asking simple questions!

I have a workbook called "ME". I want to write a macro that will import data from columns A1 till J5000 in worksheet"temp" in another workbook called "XY", and put them in a worksheet called "IM" in the original workbook. Can someone please help me with the code. I also want to put in a code that will opne up workbook "XY" in case it is not open.
Thanks!
 

Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Thanks. How do I specify the location path of the source file?

Code:
Sub Copycat()'    Dim vFile As Variant
'    Dim wbCopyTo As Workbook
'    Dim wsCopyTo As Worksheet
'    Dim wbCopyFrom As Workbook
'    Dim wsCopyFrom As Worksheet
'
'
'    Set wbCopyTo = ActiveWorkbook
'    Set wsCopyTo = ActiveSheet
'
'        '-------------------------------------------------------------
'        'Open file with data to be copied
'
'        vFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.xl*)," & _
'        "*.xl*", 1, "Select Excel File", "Open", False)
'
'        'If Cancel then Exit
'        If TypeName(vFile) = "Boolean" Then
'            Exit Sub
'        Else
'        Set wbCopyFrom = Workbooks.Open(vFile)
'        Set wsCopyFrom = wbCopyFrom.Worksheets(1)
'        End If
'
'        '--------------------------------------------------------------
'        'Copy Range 3000 soft limit
'        wsCopyFrom.Range("a1:af3000").Copy
'
'        wsCopyTo.Range("a1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, _
'                Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
'
'
'
'
'
'        wbCopyFrom.Save
'
'
'
'        'Close file that was opened
'        wbCopyFrom.Close SaveChanges:=False
'


'
'End Sub

The workbook I am opening is "XY" in location c:\mamama\XY.xls. The worksheet that has the data to be copied is called "temp" and the range is A1 to J5000. I want to copy it to a worksheet called "IM" in my active workbook. Can you please tell me how to do that with the above code
