I have an Excel spreadsheet called 1.xls

Is there a bit of vbs to copy this file and call it 2.xls, then 3.xls, then 4.xls and so on - 110 times, to 110.xls?

Thanks

Easy

If you have the location

public sub copy100

dim fileName as string
dim outputLoc as string
dim lngLc as long

fileName = "C:\xxx\1.xls"
outputLoc = "C:\xxx\"

for lngLC = 2 to 110
    filecopy filename, outputLoc & lnglc & ".xls"
next lngLc

end sub

Sory the sub should be public sub copy100 ()

This goes through the numbers in the selected range and copies from the fileName to the outputLocation - and the name of the file is just the number - if you want it to be numbered 002 to 110 then you would use a format statement in th filecopy
