Can you please help,
I used below code to merge excel sheets.

- I need to have a pop box to ask me which sheets to merge together.
- The new created sheet to be named as the 2 sheets merged (Example Sheet1 & Sheet2)
- Delete the merged sheets.

Option Explicit
Sub Merge_Sheets()
Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
   Dim wks As Worksheet
   Set wks = Sheets(Sheets.Count)

   wks.Name = "Sheet1 & Sheet2"
   With Sheets("Sheet1")
    Dim lastrow As Long
    lastrow = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    .Range("A1:O" & lastrow).Copy wks.Range("A" & wks.Rows.Count).End(xlUp)
   End With

   With Sheets("Sheet2")
    lastrow = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    .Range("A2:O" & lastrow).Copy wks.Range("A" & wks.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
   End With
Application.DisplayAlerts = False

End Sub

any help is appreciated.
Thank you

Dim ResultSheet1 As String
Dim ResultSheet2 As String
Dim OrigWks1 As Worksheet
Dim OrigWks2 As Worksheet
Sheets.Add after:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)

   ResultSheet2 = InputBox("What is the second sheet to merge?")
   On Error Resume Next
   Set OrigWks1 = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(ResultSheet1)
   Set OrigWks2 = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(ResultSheet2)
   On Error Goto 0

        MsgBox "An error occured", vbOKOnly
        Exit Sub
   End If
   Set wks = Sheets.Add(after:=Sheets(Sheets.Count))

thank you for your help.

it is working, however, it is creating 2 sheets.
one with the merged sheets,
and another empty sheet.

I guess you can't get the pop up message's  for me to enter first sheet and second sheet to merge at same time.
