How to save all worksheets as values only?

Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2020-05-09

If you have a workbook which contains multiple formulas, now, you need to distribute this file to other users, you don’t want to show the formulas but only values be displayed. Normally, we can quickly save a worksheet as values by copying and pasting the data as values only. But, how could you save all worksheets as values only without copying and pasting one by one?

Hi,
This is what i'm using (I exit the file automatically so I won't save accidently with values only).

But I wanted to keep just one sheet saved "normally" because I have a drop down list there that I would not like to lose when sharing the file.


Can anyone help me do this?

Thank you!


<div data-tag="code">Sub Saveasvalue()

Dim wsh As Worksheet
For Each wsh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
wsh.Cells.Copy
wsh.Cells.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
Next
Application.CutCopyMode = False

savename = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(fileFilter:="Exel Files (*.xlsx), *.xlsx")
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=savename, FileFormat:=51

Application.DisplayAlerts = False 'exit without alerts
Application.Quit
End Sub

Is there any way to undo this if you've forgotten to save down the formula version first?
