    MACRO to split new data into multiple tabs but not overwrite existing data

    Hello all,

    I'm very new to macros in excel. I have a spreadsheet where I am tracking user issues of a software that our office uses. Each issue is assigned to a category. I currently have a macro in the worksheet that will sort the data into tabs based on category. So, "Major Program Change" "Minor Program Change" etc. all have their own tab and there is a tab labeled "All submissions" that has a running log of every issue ever submitted (this is where the sorting macro lives). Each issue is assigned a status (i.e. completed, new, in progress etc.) and the status is maintained in the "All Submissions" tab and pulled to the other tabs when I run the macro. Each tab has a macro that allows me to move the issues up and down to prioritize them. Here's my issue. The macro sorts the data into the tabs just fine and all the data carries over, I am then able to prioritize them and put them in order but if I add any new issues to the the "All submissions" tab, assign their status and then click the button to sort into tabs based on category, it overwrites all the data I have in the tabs already and I have to prioritize from scratch.

    So essentially, data that has already been sorted and prioritized I want to remain and I only want new issues that are put into the "All Submissions" tab to be sorted and I want them to be at the bottom and then moved up or down based on priority. I hope what I'm asking makes sense. I've included the current "sorting" macro that I have in the workbook below for your reference. I have also attached the workbook with personal details omitted to give a better visual of what I'm talking about.

    Re: MACRO to split new data into multiple tabs but not overwrite existing data

    Thank you for your response! I get the message "Run-time error '9': Subscript out of range". I'm not sure what this means.

    Edit: I figured out it was giving me the error because I needed to change the name of the workbook from "Sheet1" to "All Submissions" in the macro. The code then ran, but I added a new submission at the bottom to see if it would sort into the appropriate tab and it didn't so I think something is still up with it.

    Using your original code, try changing this line
    ws.Range("A" & titlerow & ":A" & lr).EntireRow.Copy Sheets(myarr(i) & "").Range("A1")

    Thanks for the reply! I made the change and it successfully sorted and didn't overwrite the existing data, which is good! But it sorted the original data along with the new submissions and put it all under the existing data, so the original submission and heading are duplicated. I took a screen shot so you can see what I'm talking about. examplemacro.jpg

    This should work.

    This time I remembered to set the worksheet name to what you have. I also stood on JLGWhiz's shoulders to incorporate his last solution into my code in order to handle new submissions (by changing the range as-needed rather than setting it to a constant value as I mistakenly had it before).

    All I did was use a Find method to get the row that matches the time stamp to store in StartRow_AllData so that when values are copied, they are not repeated.

    *Sorry for the re-edit, but I incorporated a few If statements which should account for the possibility of populating a blank sheet. That would lead to the Find method returning "Nothing" and causing an error.

    Re: MACRO to split new data into multiple tabs but not overwrite existing data

    Thank you for the reply! Sorry for the hiatus, I was away from work for the weekend. So I'm back at it this morning trying to figure this thing out. I used the edited code above but when I try to run it, it says "Run-time error '9': Subscript out of range" I tried glancing over the macro to make sure the title row was accurate and tab names and I can't figure out why it's giving me that error.

    Re: MACRO to split new data into multiple tabs but not overwrite existing data

    Hi, thanks so much for the reply! I ran the code and it changed all the status' to "Completed" in the all submissions tab. My thought was they would stay however they were assigned, and just move to the different tabs based on category. Within each tab we prioritize the issues by using a macro to move entire rows up and down. With the first macro I had, when I sorted the "All Submissions" tab after adding new issues it would sort over the original prioritized data in the tabs. I was hoping to fix the macro so that it would keep the previously sorted and prioritized tabs as is and only sort newly added issues to the "All Submissions" tab that have yet been prioritized. I hope I'm making sense! Thanks again for taking the time to respond, it's appreciated!
