In one tab I have information, where I have made it output the information on a second tab (It's more in depth than this but I tried making this as simple as possible) refer to this as (1)

I want to make another file where every time that (1) is saved, the information from Tab 2 of (1) stacks up in (2) below: refer to this as (2)

I'm guessing this is Macro based, but I am not sure how to do so.

To clarify, the first time someone saves data to Tab 1 in (1) it's output is sent to Tab 2 in (1). Then I want that data to be saved to the new file, (2), as X Y Z. The next time someone saves the data in (1), I want it to pop up in the new file (2) as A B C. So every time the file is saved, new data forms on the new file, (2).

Thank you in advance.

So if we think about it, we really want tab one to be copied, not moved.

Sheets("Sheet1").Copy After:=Sheets(1)

OK, I just recorded a macro and its output was:

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:\Users\User\Documents\filenamehere.xlsm", _
FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False

SO there is the file save step.

I did all of this by recording the two macros you described. Now just, polish it up with variable to make it dynamic!
