Hey all, i heard this was a well respected forum with good feedback. I need a little guidance...
I have a master file 'Copy and Save.xlsm'. It contains 3 tabs: FR, GM, and CH.

I want to save a copy of each tab to a new Excel file and name the file as Tab name - Master file name, e.g. FR - Copy and Save. xls. The master file is a Macro enabled Excel 2003 format and The new file need to be plain Excel 2003-2007 format rather than a Macro enabled format..(It should be ok to change the master file to Macro enabled format but the new files have to be Excel 2003 format...)

My Macro is able to create a new workbook, save and name it but can't move on to the next tab...
Sub copy_save()
' Move and make a copy of each tab from the master file and save as a new workbook. Name it tab name - master file name
pName = ActiveWorkbook.Path ' the path of the currently active file, the master file
wbName = ActiveWorkbook.Name ' the file name of the currently active master file
shtName = ActiveSheet.Name ' the name of the currently selected worksheet, the master file

For i = 1 To Worksheets.Count

Tabname = pName & "\" & shtName & " - " & wbName 'Name the new workbook as: Tab name - master file name

Dim Newshtname As String
Newshtname = Tabname

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
Newshtname, FileFormat:= _
xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False

Sheet(shtName).Activate ' want to Return to master file and move and save the next tab. This doesn't work however.


ActiveSheet.Next.Select 'move to next tab

Next i


End Sub
