Hello,

Please help me expand the code below to copy sheet 1 from the newly opened file to the current file and then close the newly opened file.

Thank you


Sub ImportSheet()

        Dim fileName
        fileName = Application.GetOpenFilename("Other Workbook (*.xl*),*.xl*")
        If fileName = "False" Then
        MsgBox "You have not selected a file. Please try again."
        GoTo QuitSub
        End If
        Workbooks.Open fileName:=fileName
        
QuitSub:
End Sub

If by "current file" you mean the workbook that you are running that code from...


Sub ImportSheet()

        Dim fileName
        Dim wb As Workbook

        fileName = Application.GetOpenFilename("Other Workbook (*.xl*),*.xl*")
        If fileName = "False" Then
        MsgBox "You have not selected a file. Please try again."
        GoTo QuitSub
        End If
        Set wb = Workbooks.Open(fileName:=fileName)
        With ThisWorkbook
            wb.Worksheets(1).Copy After:=.Worksheets(.Worksheets.Count)
            wb.Close False
            .Activate
            .Worksheets(.Worksheets.Count).Select
        End With
        
QuitSub:
End Sub
