Copying and Migrating from one Spreadsheet to another

I have two fairly complex workbooks created in Excel 2010.   The function in one, I want in the other and thus I must move/copy or migrate 4 sheets in the source to the target.  What considerations should I take into account as I try to bring in the functionality?  For example, should I copy or move the functionality (i.e.create a copy of the source and paste it into the other workbook).  Will Macros automatically come over when I copy a sheet from source to target?  If I have to copy over the macros, do they have to be in the same "Module"?  Will Range Names copy over?   I'm looking to try to not create a huge problem as I try to bring over the functionality and want to understand any "gotchas".

Thank you,

B.

1) If the code is stored in the sheet code area then you can copy the sheets directly and the code will be copied.

2) If the code is stored in a module then simply right click on the module of the source workbook and export it as a .BAS file which you can import in the new file. Please see snapshot.

Sid,  Thanks for the reply; what about range names and conditional formatting?  Does that come over with a copy and paste?  How about if I right click on the tab and make a copy or move function?

I was exactly talking about that. Do not do a normal copy and paste.
