Looks to me like you are copying two sheets and trying to paste them on top of themselves multiple times.

  What are you actually trying to acheive?

Thank you for the response.

I have an excel file which creates five unique reports. (Company 1, Company 2, etc).

Right now, it's 1 sheet report. I'm trying to add a second sheet into the automation process.
