Recording a macro does not work as I need more sophisticated VB

When all else fails, use this

Sub cleanedup()
ms = "don"
Sheets(ms).Copy
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=ActiveWorkbook.Path & ms & ".xlsm", _
FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False
End Sub

Part of what Don Guillett is suggesting is that creating a Macro is a
valid and useful first step in creating a VBA solution.

The generated code is often less than optimal. Well, make that
down-right ugly on occasion. <g> And Macros tend to be be more, shall
we say, "situationally aware". That is, they can make assumptions
about objects and their states that are risky or even invalid in a
'free-standing' VBA module.

Create your Macro.
Cleanup the code.
Fully qualify the references, and Voilà!
A more "sophisticated" VBA solution.
