    Hello,
    thank you so much for a great macro, it works like a charm! But I have a question, what if I would like to save this macro (CSV version) on PERSONAL.xlsb as to make it available on any excel instance?

    When I try, CurDir takes the PERSONAL directory, instead of the active worksheet one...

    Thank you for any help!

    A, I see now that the line "VBA code: Export all sheets to separated csv files" should not be copied into the code area. Perhaps that can be more explicit for newbies, and for people who follow instructions explicitly.

      Hi Ken,
      That's the description line of the code. The line "Sub ExportSheetsToCSV()" should be the first line of the code.
      I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
