Excel vba move tabs to new workbook

Hi experts,

I need some help with some vba to move three worksheets("Example1", "Example2", "Example3") from one workbook to a new workbook and then save the new workbook in the same directory as the current one.  The name of the new file will be coming from the worksheet named summary and the name of the file will be in cell a1.

Thank you ,

You can use the following code to do what you are looking for..

Sub movedata()
    Dim wb As Workbook, wb1 As Workbook
    Dim str As String
    Dim xpath As String
    Set wb = thisworbook
    xpath = ThisWorkbook.Path
    str = Sheets("Summary").Range("A1").Value

    Sheets(Array("Example1", "Example2", "Example")).Copy
    Set wb1 = ActiveWorkbook
    wb1.SaveAs Filename:=xpath & "\" & str & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook
    wb1.Close (True)

End Sub
