Hi everyone, relatively new to VBA so appreciate any guidance with this problem I've attached a simple workbook.
I'd like to split my master Excel workbook into multiple workbooks based on name criteria. Here is the process:
Filter column A on the 3 data tabs for each name referenced on the Names tab. So for the first name on the Names tab, 'Swanson, Ron', filter that name on Data1, Data2, Data3 tabs.
Highlight the first 6 tabs (Sheet1 - Sheet6)
Copy paste values
Save down just those sheets as separate workbook named Swanson,Ron.xlsx
Repeat for the next name
Here is some code I have tried that I found on a separate thread, this will only filter one tab and I'm a bit confused by it. Sheets 1 - 6 do not have any data, but this is just for simplicity, in reality this has automated formatting and formulas that are generated off results of my data tabs.
Public Sub test() ' MACRO test Dim osh As Worksheet ' Original sheet Dim iRow As Long ' Cursors Dim iCol As Long Dim iFirstRow As Long ' Constant Dim iTotalRows As Long ' Constant Dim iStartRow As Long ' Section delimiters Dim iStopRow As Long Dim sSectionName As String ' Section name (and filename) Dim rCell As Range ' current cell Dim owb As Workbook ' Original workbook Dim sFilePath As String ' Constant Dim iCount As Integer ' # of documents created iCol = Application.InputBox("Enter the column number used for splitting", "Select column", 2, , , , , 1) iRow = Application.InputBox("Enter the starting row number (to skip header)", "Select row", 2, , , , , 1) iFirstRow = iRow Set osh = Application.ActiveSheet Set owb = Application.ActiveWorkbook iTotalRows = osh.UsedRange.Rows.Count sFilePath = Application.ActiveWorkbook.Path If Dir(sFilePath + "\Split", vbDirectory) = "" Then MkDir sFilePath + "\Split" End If 'Turn Off Screen Updating Events Application.EnableEvents = False Application.ScreenUpdating = False Do ' Get cell at cursor Set rCell = osh.Cells(iRow, iCol) sCell = Replace(rCell.Text, " ", "") If sCell = "" Or (rCell.Text = sSectionName And iStartRow <> 0) Or InStr(1, rCell.Text, "total", vbTextCompare) <> 0 Then ' Skip condition met Else ' Found new section If iStartRow = 0 Then ' StartRow delimiter not set, meaning beginning a new section sSectionName = rCell.Text iStartRow = iRow Else ' StartRow delimiter set, meaning we reached the end of a section iStopRow = iRow - 1 ' Pass variables to a separate sub to create and save the new worksheet CopySheet osh, iFirstRow, iStartRow, iStopRow, iTotalRows, sFilePath, sSectionName, owb.fileFormat iCount = iCount + 1 ' Reset section delimiters iStartRow = 0 iStopRow = 0 ' Ready to continue loop iRow = iRow - 1 End If End If ' Continue until last row is reached If iRow < iTotalRows Then iRow = iRow + 1 Else ' Finished.

Thank you so much for any help here
