I have a workbook BUDGET.XLSM and it has code that I need and want.  I want to
1) make a copy of this workbook
2) name the new workbook "NEW BUDGET.XLSM"  
3) in the new copy. I want to delete an unnecessary worksheet named "OLD".

The code that will be executing this will be resident in budget.xlsm.

Can someone help me with this code?

The following code will do what you are looking for...
Public Sub DuplicateWorkbook()

ActiveWorkbook.SaveCopyAs "New Budget.xlsm"
Workbooks.Open "New Budget.xlsm"
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("OLD").Delete
End Sub

Open in new window

Just in case you were thinking "copy WORKSHEET to a different WORKBOOK" here's the code:
Sub CopyWorksheets()

Dim wbGenerated as Workbook, wbTemplate as Workbook
Dim ws as Worksheet

Set wbGenerated = Workbooks("Generated.xlsx")
Set wbTemplate = Workbooks("TemplateASA.xlsx") 'If this line fails, remove it and uncomment the following line
' Set wbTemplate = Workbooks.Open("TemplateASA.xlsx", ,True) ' Opens as read only
For Each sh In wbTemplate.Worksheets
   sh.Copy After:=wbGenerated.Sheets(wbGenerated.Sheets.Count)
Next sh
'wbTemplate.Close(False) 'Only required if you opened wbTemplate above

End sub

Open in new window
