Save a single worksheet

  1. Right-click the worksheet name tab.

    Excel worksheet tabs are at the bottom of the Excel window.
  2. Click select Move or Copy.

    The right-click menu for the tab
  3. Click on the Move selected sheets to Book drop-down menu. Select (new book).

    The Move or Copy dialog box

    Note: This process moves your worksheet from the original workbook. If you want to keep your worksheet in both workbooks, in the Move or Copy dialog box, select the check box for Create a copy.

    The "Create a copy" check box is at the bottom of the dialog box.
