The easiest and quickest way to do this is to do the work in one book and then copy it to another when you are done.

WordPress Tutorial 2: Terminology

An important part of learning any new piece of software is understanding the terminology it uses. Thankfully WordPress uses fairly simple names for everything that make it easy to start using the software.

Hi Loay,

Supposing your soruce workbook  is called "Book1.xls" and copy workbook is called "Book2.xls" & both are opened as blank workbooks, put this code in the Workbook_SheetChange event of "Book1.xls"

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Workbooks("Book2.xls").Sheets(ActiveSheet.Name).Range(Target.Address) = Target
End Sub

To get there, right-click on the Excel-symbol left next to 'File' in the menu bar, and select view code, then paste the above lines. Close the Visual Basic Editor afterwards, to save your changes.

What will happen now, is that every text you type in "Book1.xls" will be copied automatically in "Book2.xls"

Hope this is what you want,

Calacuccia
