How do I paste a macro from one spreadsheet to another.

We have a spreadsheet (97-2003) that some cells have a custom format of 0000-00-00
When you enter 1234, you get 1234-00-00 instead of 0000-12-34.
This is happening because of the following macro:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
    'modify the range A1:A20 to match your input cells
    If Not Intersect(Target, [j8:J46]) Is Nothing Then
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        Target.Value = Replace(Left(Target.Value & Space(8), 8), " ", "0")
        Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If
End Sub

How do I put this macro into a new spreadsheet to achieve the entry results?
 (I realize that the macro affects cells j8 through j46 and I will have to modify the cell range appropriately and use a macro-enabled workbook.)

That is a Worksheet specific code. So, in the workbook that needs to receive the code, right click on the tab of the worksheet where you need the entries to change and select View Code. This will open the Visual Basic Editor and will show the code for that sheet. Copy and Paste into the "document" module pane on the right hand side.
