Hi there
I have 2 workbooks opened at the same time. Lets call them workbook1 and worbook2.
I have workbook1 opened and I recorded a macro. In workbook1 I copy the range A2:H158 into workbook2
Here is a partial recorded code


Range("A2:H158").Select
Selection.Copy
Windows("workbook2.xlsx").Activate
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
Range("A2").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste

Here is what happened. Workbook2 did not open up when I ran the macro even though it opened up when I recorded the macro. Is there a different code I can use instead of Windows("workbook2.xlsx").Activate?

Thanks in advance.

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.
