Copying code to the "ThisWorkbook" module of a spun off sheet

I have a macro that spins off each of 12 sheets ("Sheets(i).Copy"). I'm trying to track any future saves of the new workbook with a time and author stamp. To do that I need to copy this macro into the new book:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim Usr As String
Usr = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(Environ("Username"), [Users], 2, 0)
[N1] = "Last saved by " & Usr & " @ " & Format(Now, "h:mm AM/PM") & " on " & Format(Now, "m/d/yyyy")
ActiveWorkbook.Save
End Sub

Open in new window

This is my ImportModule code:
Sub ImportModule()
Dim xMod As String
xMod = "H:\Depts\css\A_ILS & Reliability\Reliability\1-CURRENT\System Reporting\SDAE\WeeklySummaries\Macros\ThisWorkbook.cls"
ActiveWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents.Import xMod
End Sub

Open in new window

And this is the code I want to import into the ThisWorkbook module:
Sub WhoSavedMe()
Dim Usr As String
Usr = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(Environ("Username"), [Users], 2, 0)
[N1] = "Last saved by " & Usr & " @ " & Format(Now, "h:mm AM/PM") & " on " & Format(Now, "m/d/yyyy")
ActiveWorkbook.Save
End Sub

Open in new window

VBA allows me to export the ThisWorkbook module as a .cls file which upon import creates a class module named "ThisWorkbook1," which of course doesn't help.

How do I accomplish my goal? I suppose I could just save the whole workbook named after each of the tabs in succession - deleting all but that one sheet - but then I'd have to re-open the main workbook 11 more times.

Thanks,
John

You are telling us how you envision your problem to be resolved and what you are trying to do which is fine.

I am missing what are you trying to achieve. You mentioned:

I'm trying to track any future saves of the new workbook with a time and author stamp.

Can you please explain in couple of sentences what do you need to achieve as it is not clear to me.

Sure. Once I've created the 12 new workbooks (each one containing one of the 12 worksheets in my source workbook), different people will be working on each of the new workbooks. I want to be able to track who made revisions and when they made them, and most importantly who made the latest revision.

Each workbook will have the named range "Users," which will contain the lookup table to give me the user's actual name. To track multiple revisions I'll change the target cell in the 1st code snippet above from [N1] to [N1].End(xlDown).Offset(1,0).  

I think part of the confusion is that I shouldn't have included Code snippet 3, since the code works only if it's in the ThisWorkbook module!

Please let me know if I still need to clarify more.

Thanks,
John

Hi gowflow, I guess I'll have to strip out the proprietary information but I'll post something as soon as I get past the next couple of days' deadlines. Slow and successful is better than fast and faulty :- )

Thanks,
