How do you change the order tabs are copied and pasted when using VBA in MS Excel 2010?

Hi All!

I'm hoping there is an easy solution to my issue. I have the code below that is set to go through all sheets in my workbook and copy then paste special values into the same spot. However, my tab that has my pivot table data is getting copied prior to all the other tabs, so my get pivot formulas are erring out because the data is getting pasted as values before the other tabs. I am trying to find a way to have my pivot table copy and paste special *after* all my other tabs. Any thoughts? Here is the VBA I am using to cycle through the tabs:

Sub PasteValues()
    Dim wks As Worksheet
    Dim wb As Workbook
    Set wb = ThisWorkbook
    For Each wks In wb.Worksheets
    wks.Cells.Copy
    wks.Cells.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues
    Next
End Sub

If this isn't clear, ask questions and I'll try to explain better. Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

- Dave

You'd just need to add an exception to the For Each...Next loop and then go back to that sheet and do a final value replacement.  Here's an example:
Sub PasteValues()
    Dim wks As Worksheet
    Dim wb As Workbook
    Set wb = ThisWorkbook
    For Each wks In wb.Worksheets
        If wks.Name <> "pivotsheettabname" Then
            wks.Cells.Copy
            wks.Cells.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues
        End If
    Next
    With Sheets("pivotsheettabname")
        .Cells.Copy
        .Cells.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues
    End With
 End Sub

Open in new window

You're welcome.  Sometimes it's a "forest-for-the-trees" thing...happens to me all the time.
