I would like to write a VBA macro which all it does is take the selected range from one sheet and selects and goes to that range on another sheet. I can't figure out exactly how to extract just the cell references without the sheet references from the selection object.

For sake of example lets say I start on sheet1 with a range selected, and want to go to sheet2 with the identical range selected.

Anyone know how?

Code:
Sub Test()
x = Selection.Address
Sheets("Sheet2").Select
Range(x).Select
End Sub
