I am trying to call the workbook name with a " - 1" at the end for a VBA script to run side by side windows. Based on Microsoft documentation, "You cannot use the CompareSideBySideWith method with the Application object or the ActiveWorkbook property." Any suggestions on a similar method to make this work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

VBA Code:
Sub CompareSideBySide(  )
 
    ActiveWindow.NewWindow
    Windows.CompareSideBySideWith _
        ("""" & ActiveWorkbook.name & " - 1""")
    Windows.Arrange ArrangeStyle:=xlVertical
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-4

End Sub
