Hi Guru's/Geniuses,

I have a template which uses VLookup to get data from a master spreadsheet. All of the lookup data is from a list of code numbers on the master spreadsheet.
I need to be able to:

1. Open the template
2. Insert the code number
3. Save the file as the code number (plus possibly another generic text string, for example "Reference number T34876"
4. Print the document (Although I can batch this if necessary separately)
5. Re-open the template and start the process again with the next code number on the spreadsheet.

I have a few hundred to do so am looking for a Batch solution, but haven't used any kind of VBA/Macro in the past. So any advice or ideas would be appreciated.

Hope That all makes sense, thanks in advance!!!

Hi Jake,
Run this after you enter your code number
Sub RunAfterEnterCodeNumber()
' Run this after you enter the code number in B2
    ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True, IgnorePrintAreas:=False
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
        "C:\Users\...\Code-" & Range("b2").Value & ".xlsm" _
        , FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorB2kbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False
    Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\Users\...Template.xlsm"
End Sub
I do not know where you template is so I use3 C:\Users\...\, change it with your real value
I do not know where the code mumbrer is so I use B2, change it with your real value
