I found this code to save xlsx to xlsm, it works great when there is only one sheet but I have files with multiple sheets and this vbs wont run. How do you modify this existing code to work with an excel file that has multiple tabs (sheets)?

if WScript.Arguments.Count < 2 Then
    WScript.Echo "Error! Please specify the source path and the destination. Usage: XlsxToxlsm SourcePath.xlsx Destination.xlsm"
    Wscript.Quit
End If
Dim oExcel
Set oExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Dim oBook
Set oBook = oExcel.Workbooks.Open(Wscript.Arguments.Item(0))
oBook.Worksheets(1).Activate
oBook.SaveAs WScript.Arguments.Item(1), 52
oBook.Close False
oExcel.Quit

I would suggest this change too, so that you don't have to specify the full path to the filenames on the command line if they aren't needed.  This will work better.

Dim oExcel
Dim oBook
Dim oFSO

If WScript.Arguments.Count < 2 Then
    WScript.Echo "Error! Please specify the source path and the destination. Usage: XlsxToxlsm SourcePath.xlsx Destination.xlsm"
    Wscript.Quit
End If

Set oExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set oBook = oExcel.Workbooks.Open(oFSO.GetAbsolutePathName(Wscript.Arguments.Item(0)))
oBook.Worksheets(1).Activate
oBook.SaveAs oFSO.GetAbsolutePathName(WScript.Arguments.Item(1)), 52
oBook.Close False
oExcel.Quit
