I'm new to macros and need to do what seems like a very basic task but I can't figure out how to write the macro. I need to copy the current worksheet to a new workbook, break all links to the source workbook, then save the new workbook with the name that's stored in cell A3.

I've done this manually so far but now that my dataset is getting larger I'll have to do it 50+ times a month, every month. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

There are formulas that reference cells in other worksheets in the source workbook. When I copy the current worksheet to the new file the cell references still point to the worksheets in the source workbook that weren't copied.

When I do this manually I go to Edit - Links - Break links in Excel 2003.
