How copy certain cell values to a new worksheet with a command button on the original worksheet

I am not an Excel expert believe me.  But I am trying to figure out how to copy certain cell values to a new worksheet with a button on the original worksheet.  For example, I may want cell B2 on the original to copy over to A1 on the new worksheet.  And B3 to copy to A2, B5 to A3, B17 to A4, etc.

At the same time I will want to new worksheet tab to be named "Member Import"

Can this be done?

Is there a limit to the number of cells you might want to copy?
SteveL13Author Commented:
I believe there are approximately 35.  But in the original tab they are not all together.  Some are, but not all.

Are they always the same?

If you know how to set up a button with a macro the you can call this macro from there
This will create a new worksheet with the desired name and copy the values without changing the format of the new worksheet

Sub copy2new()
Dim sws As Worksheet
Dim tws As Worksheet
Set sws = ActiveSheet
Set tws = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add
tws.Name = "Member Import"
tws.Range("B2").Value = sws.Range("A1").Value
tws.Range("C4:D5") = sws.Range("A2:B3").Value
End Sub

Here's how to add the macro,

In Excel, Press Alt+F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor (VBE)

Right-click on your workbook name in the "Project-VBAProject" pane (at the top left corner of the editor window) and select Insert -> Module from the context menu

Copy the macro and paste it into the right-hand pane of the VBA editor ("Module1" window)

Press Alt+F11 again to go back to Excel

Optionally, press Alt+F8 to open the "Macro" dialog window. Select the macro, click ‘Options…’,  hold down the Shift key and type the letter A (or any other letter) and click ‘OK’.  Then anytime you want to run the macro press Ctrl+Shift+A

You can also of course add a command button to the sheet, right-click on it, and the assign the macro to it.

Is there some way of determining which cells on the source sheet are to be copied?

If you were to apply a filter to show only the required cells what would the criteria be? Is there something in common with those cells?

The filter could be done with either AutoFilter or Advanced Filter. AutoFilter will filter in place and then a selection can be copied; an Advanced Filter can be set to copy to another sheet. Both can be automated using a Macro with a button to run it.
