set active sheet to current file

I've written some code to read a range of cells from an excel file, as below.
Now I need to paste this into the file in which the macro is running.
How to I set the active workbook/sheet to this?


excelFileSource = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\file1.xls"
On Error Resume Next
 
Set excelApplication = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
If Err = 429 Then
    Set excelApplication = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
End If
 
Set excelWorkbookSource = excelApplication.Workbooks.Open(excelFileSource)
excelWorkbookSource.Sheets("mySheet").Activate
' select the range to copy
ActiveSheet.Range("C3:C74").Select
Selection.Copy
 
'???

ThisWorkbook always refers to the workbook that contains the code.
