Please try this:

Option Explicit

Public Sub CopyTradeHistory()
  Dim wks As Worksheet
  Dim vSheets() As Variant
  Dim vSheetname As Variant
  Dim rngSrc As Range
  vSheets = Array("pm", "rm")
  On Error Resume Next
  Application.DisplayAlerts = False
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  For Each vSheetname In vSheets
    Set wks = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets(vSheetname)
    Set rngSrc = wks.Cells.Find("Account Trade History")
    Set rngSrc = wks.Range(rngSrc, rngSrc.End(xlDown).End(xlDown).Offset(0, 11))
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets(vSheetname & "_output").Delete
    Set wks = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add
    wks.Name = vSheetname & "_output"
    rngSrc.Copy wks.Range("A1")
  Next
  Application.ScreenUpdating = True
  Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub

Perfect!  Thank you.

I was only wanting it to run against one or the other though.  I want to be 'able' to run against either sheet.

How would I get it to give only one output depending on which sheet it was run against?

* You would query the user for a sheet name (Inputbox
* You would assume that the activesheet.name is the sheet to be processed -- warning: you need to check to see that the activesheet.name is PM or RM.
* It shouldn't matter.  Let the code create both outputs and delete the one you don't want.

Actually it really does matter for this.  I was asked to break it down into small pieces so to simplify what I am asking, I will just start referring to a single tab.  Here is the new question >>>  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_26882640.html
