I'm using the following code to copy a sheet to a new workbook but it's only copying the values, not the formulas. How can I modify this code to copy the formulas too?

Sub CopyToNew()
Dim ws As Worksheet
    Sheets(Array("SO")).Copy
    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        ws.UsedRange.Value = ws.UsedRange.Value
    Next ws
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "\\BCAR1\BCAR-Net\IT\Excel Spreadsheets\Daily SO Report\Daily SO Report.xlsx"
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub

this code is not copying the value !!!

What do you want to copy ?

It is copying
Sheets(Array("SO")).Copy

but it is not pasting it.

what do you have sheets that you need to copy ?

ok in your code replace

this line
ws.UsedRange.Value = ws.UsedRange.Value


by this line
ws.Paste


so that the code becomes

Sub CopyToNew()
Dim ws As Worksheet
    Sheets("sheet1").Copy
    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        ws.Paste
    Next ws
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "\\BCAR1\BCAR-Net\IT\Excel Spreadsheets\Daily SO Report\Daily SO Report.xlsx"
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub

Remove this, it's the part of the code that's replacing formulas with values.
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        ws.UsedRange.Value = ws.UsedRange.Value
    Next ws

What's being pasted here?
ws.Paste

When I try the code it's the last thing that was copied to the clipboard, and nothing to do with the worksheet that's been copied.
