This will take the current selection, create a new workbook, and add the selection to Sheet1 Cell A1 of the new workbook and save it as copyRange.xlsm
Sub CopyRange()
    Dim xls As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim rng As Excel.Range
    Dim xlb As Excel.Workbook
    Set rng = Excel.Selection
    Set xlb = Workbooks.Add()
    xlb.Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    
    Set xls = xlb.Sheets("Sheet1")
    rng.Copy Destination:=xls.Range("A1")
    xlb.SaveAs "copyRange.xlsm", xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, AccessMode:=xlExclusive, ConflictResolution:=Excel.XlSaveConflictResolution.xlLocalSessionChanges
    xlb.Close False
End Sub

Open in new window
