Hello,

Basically, I am trying to set up a macro which, when I push a button, will do the following:

1) Create a new spreadsheet
2) Copy the data from an existing sheet (the one with the button) to the spreadsheet
3) Rename the new spreadsheet according to a value within the existing sheet.

I need to be able to do this ad infinitum, and one of the problems I am facing is with spreadsheet naming. At best, the macro works once.

Can anyone help?

Hello,

If you are only copying from the master file try

Code:
Sub CREATE_NEW()
    MY_BOOK = ActiveWorkbook.Name
    MY_SHEET = ActiveSheet.Name
    MY_NAME = Range("A1").Value
    Workbooks.Add
    With ActiveWorkbook
        .SaveAs "C:\" & MY_NAME & ".xls"
        Workbooks(MY_BOOK).Sheets(MY_SHEET).Cells.Copy
        Workbooks(MY_NAME).ActiveSheet.Range("A1").PasteSpecial (xlPasteAll)
    End With
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub
if you will be copying from the copy file then try

Code:
Sub COPY_NEW()
    MY_SHEET = ActiveSheet.Name
    With ActiveWorkbook
        .Save
        .SaveAs "C:\" & Range("A1").Value & ".xls"
    End With
    For MY_SHEETS = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Count To 1 Step -1
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False
        If Sheets(MY_SHEETS).Name <> MY_SHEET Then
            Sheets(MY_SHEETS).Delete
        End If
    Next MY_SHEETS
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub
Do either of these help?
