In that case you need to explain to us what you actually want to know !

You don't need to define ThisWorkbook and ActiveWorkbook, they already exist.

ThisWorkbook refers to the workbook the code is in and ActiveWorkbook refers to the currently active workbook.

Unless, of course you need....
Code:
dim Wb as workbook
Set Wb=Thisworkbook
OR
Set Wb=activeworkbook

An example:


Code:
Sub test()
    Dim wb1 As Workbook, wb2 As Workbook
    Workbooks.Open "file1.xlsx"
    Set wb1 = ActiveWorkbook    'The wb1 object is established in the active book (it is the recently opened book)
    
    Set wb2 = ThisWorkbook      'It does not matter which book is active, in the object wb2 the book that contains this macro is established.
    
End Sub
