Hi

I am expecting a NO to this question but if its possible I am all ears.

I have excel project I have been working on.

Within the project I create NEW workbooks based on set criteria and this seems to work without problems.

ie
1. Macro A - creates a NEW workbook based on criteria - working already
2. within Macro A - can I pass a module or a different macro to the workbook created within step 1.
3. if step 2 is possible, is it possible to code the transfer within Macro A.

Any help or advice on this one would be appreciated

Thanks

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Why not create a template with the code you want in the new workbooks and then use that when creating those new workbooks?

At the moment I am doing the following
1. run Macro A - this creates the NEW workbook
2. I then add the code manually.

just a thought

could I automate importing a module?

Why don't you create a template workbook with the code and use that when creating the new workbook?

You can use code to import a module to a workbook but it has various implications, for example you would need to lower the security settings to allow programmatic access to VBE.
