I have a macro that I'm using to copy two sheets from one work book to another workbook. The copy works - what doesn't work is copying the data validation that I have on one of the sheets where it has a drop down list based on the other sheet?

Any suggestions to make this also copy along with the sheets to the other workbook?

Thanks!

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

you need to use: .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlDataValidation

So here is my current VBA - where would I put the code? I tried to put right after the .Copy but that wasn't the correct place

VBA Code:
Sub CopySheets()

myWorkbook = InputBox("Enter Workbook Name")
 
Workbooks("HirerightInvoiceConfirmation.xlsx").Sheets("Confirmation Form").Copy _
    After:=Workbooks(myWorkbook & ".xlsx").Sheets(Workbooks(myWorkbook & ".xlsx").Sheets.Count)
    
Workbooks("HirerightInvoiceConfirmation.xlsx").Sheets("Disputes Reasons").Copy _
    After:=Workbooks(myWorkbook & ".xlsx").Sheets(Workbooks(myWorkbook & ".xlsx").Sheets.Count)
    
End Sub
