Insert Worksheets from Another Workbook
If you want to insert worksheets from another workbook in Microsoft Excel, just follow these steps:
Step1: Open the destination workbook where you want to insert the worksheets.
Step2: Click on the “Home” tab in the ribbon at the top of the Excel window.
Step3: Click on the “Insert” dropdown in the Cells group, and select “Insert Sheet“.
Step4: Click on the “File” tab in the ribbon at the top of the Excel window, Click on “Open” and navigate to the source workbook. And select the source workbook and click on “Open“.
Step5: In the source workbook, select the worksheet(s) that you want to insert. Right-click on the selected worksheet(s) and click on “Move or Copy“.
Step6: In the “Move or Copy” dialog box, select the destination workbook from the “To book” dropdown. And select the position where you want to insert the worksheet(s) in the destination workbook.
Step7: Select the “Create a copy” checkbox if you want to create a copy of the worksheet(s) rather than moving them.
Step8: Click “OK” to insert the worksheet(s) into the destination workbook.
Alternatively, you can also drag and drop the selected worksheet(s) from the source workbook to the destination workbook. To do this, open both workbooks side by side, select the worksheet(s) in the source workbook, drag and drop them to the desired location in the destination workbook.
