You haven't set a reference to the VBA Extensibility library in the import-export file as explained in Chip pearson's article.

You would need to export the code then import it into the other files. These files would also need to be saved as a macro enabled workbook.

I would suggest that the code be saved as an Excel addin which can then be run in any workbook.

The code would need to editing for this purpose but I would be pleased to help you with this.

I just want a code to be run from the first sheet to copy the macro from the same excel file to the other excel files in the directory.

Why not just run the macro over those other files?

' This looks for files that start with "Well" in the file name
    Dim file As Variant
    Dim wb as Workbook
    file = Dir("c:\test\well*")
    While (file <> "")
        Set wb = Workbooks.Open("c:\test\" & file, 0)

      ' run your code here to process wb

     file = Dir
   Wend

I've already pointed out a page by one of the leading Excel experts( Chip Pearson) to export and import the code. There is no simple way and I have suggested that you study that article.

The alternative that I have suggested here is much simpler than trying to export & import code. It's actually what an addin is designed for.

I was able to insert the macro on all my files and I need also to run the macro after inserting it in each file. What is the code to run the macro in module11

Roy CoxGroup Finance ManagerCommented:
How did you insert the code? To run a macro from another workbook would require something like

 Application.Run ("FileName.xlsm!MacroName")

Open in new window


Add your file name and macro name.

It's a pity that you don't listen to advice from the Experts that you are asking. You are really making hard work of this.

This question cannot be resolved. I have answered versions of this question probably 3 times .  The OP has been given advice about simpler, more effective methods, links, sample code. The OP will not listen to that advice.
