Applies to

The information in this topic applies only to the specified Visual Studio Tools for Office projects and versions of Microsoft Office.

Project type

  • Application-level projects

Microsoft Office version

For more information, see Features Available by Application and Project Type.

You can create a copy of a worksheet, and insert that worksheet before or after an existing worksheet in the workbook. If you do not specify where to insert the worksheet, Excel creates a new workbook to contain the new worksheet.

NoteNote:

Whether you copy the worksheet programmatically, or the end user copies the worksheet manually, there is no code behind the new worksheet and controls on the new worksheet do not function. This is because the newly copied worksheet is a Worksheet object and not a Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Worksheet host item. Windows Forms controls and host controls can only be added to host items. For more information, see Programmatic Limitations of Host Items and Host Controls.

To add a copied worksheet to a workbook in a document-level customization

  • Use the Copy(Object, Object) method to copy the first worksheet in the current workbook and place the copy after the third sheet.

    Globals.Sheet1.Copy(missing, Globals.ThisWorkbook.Sheets[3]);
    

To add a copied worksheet to a workbook in an application-level add-in

  • Use the Copy(Object, Object) method to copy the first worksheet in the current workbook and place the copy after the third sheet.

    Excel.Worksheet worksheet1 = ((Excel.Worksheet)Application.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets[1]);
    Excel.Worksheet worksheet3 = ((Excel.Worksheet)Application.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets[3]);
    worksheet1.Copy(missing, worksheet3);
