Here's a timesaving tip for Excel users who frequently need to copy an entire worksheet (a page within a workbook) of information-such as a list of items for a monthly inventory-from one workbook (Excel file) to another.

To copy an entire sheet to another workbook, follow these steps:

  1. Open the workbook into which you want to paste the copied sheet.
  2. Switch to the workbook that contains the sheet you want to copy.
  3. Right-click the Sheet tab of the sheet you want to copy. A pop-up menu will appear.
  4. Click Move or Copy on the pop-up menu.
  5. From the To book drop-down menu, select the workbook that will receive the sheet. (To copy the selected sheet to a new workbook, click New book on the drop-down menu.)
  6. Indicate where in the receiving file you want the sheet to appear (Before Sheet1, Before Sheet2, etc.)
  7. Check the Create a copy check box. (If you don't select this check box, the sheet will be moved instead of copied.)
  8. Click OK. A copy of the worksheet will appear in the file you indicated.
