I’ve recorded a quick macro which moves from my starting worksheet to a different worksheet, copies some cells and then goes back to the original worksheet to paste the contents of the copied cells.
While recording the macro the worksheet had a certain name and I’m trying to understand how to change it so that the macro will return to whatever worksheet I was on when initiating the macro and not returning to a specifically named macro.
This is what the code looks like:
Sheets("vlookup template").Select Range("A1:K1").Select Selection.Copy Sheets("Sheet8").Select Range("A1").Select ActiveSheet.Paste Sheets("vlookup template").Select Range("B2:K2").Select Application.CutCopyMode = False Selection.Copy Sheets("Sheet8").Select Range("B2").Select ActiveSheet.Paste Application.CutCopyMode = False Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("B2:K11") Range("B2:K11").Select Selection.Copy
I want to change it so that instead of going to ‘sheet8’ it returns to the original sheet.
Dim homeSheet As WorkSheet Set homeSheet = ActiveSheet '.... Do stuff homeSheet.Activate
