    Macro to split master file by key field where key field is on all three sheets

    Hello,

    I enclose a file which had three active sheets of data. On each sheet is the key column called "location"
    I require a looping macro that will loop through the master file and place the data for each location into individual files where each file will be the location name.
    So each finished location file will have three sheets with the same sheet names as the master file, but will only contain the data for its own location.
    I will always place the master file in the directory C:\Documents before starting the macro and it will be fine for the finished location files to be placed here as well.

    This is just a small example file of a larger file which contains about 2,000 rows across 40 locations.
    The number of columns and rows on each sheet will vary each week.

    If you can help me I would really appreciate it.

    Re: Macro to split master file by key field where key field is on all three sheets

    So to be clear: you end up with one file for each location? (in the given example: 4 files)
    Is it (ever) possible that the number of cities in the sheets Temp Payments and Structure Costing higher is than in Depot Report?
    Is it coincidence that the number of rows in the sheets Temp Payments and Structure Costing are the same?

    Hello Erwin,

    Yes, one file per location, and the number of locations may differ from week to week.
    No the number of cities in temp payments and structure costing will either equal or be less than the depot report.
    Yes, it is a coincidence that the number of rows in Temp Payments and Structure Costing are the same, in reality they are highly likely to have difference number of rows.

    Thanks for your support on this.

    Sorry Jonathan for keeping you waiting but had some obligations elswhere :-)
    as below the code and the attachment.
    The only liberty i took, is sorting the data in the code in the original file.

    Re: Macro to split master file by key field where key field is on all three sheets

    Just one question Jindon, the master file I gave you was using just row 1 as the fixed headers on each sheet. In reality my master file has fixed headers from rows 1 to 4 and the variable data each time starts on row 5. Therefore which line of your code do I need to change, so each sheet always keeps rows 1 to 4 as headers as the sheet header and the variable data starts on row 5.

    Can not tell anything without seeing your actual heading.

    Re: Macro to split master file by key field where key field is on all three sheets

    Hi Erwin,

    Please find attached an example, where as you can see pay date, company and pay frequency as well as the column headers take up the first four rows.
    Whatever appears on the first four rows of each sheet must remain the first four rows of each of the three sheets within each location file.

    I also note on your macro code provided earlier, there is reference to column H in a range. While my example does finish at column H, in reality the number of columns each week will be variable.

    Thanks for your help.
    Jonathan.

    Re: Macro to split master file by key field where key field is on all three sheets

    Hello Erwin,

    Thanks for your continued support on this, but I wanted the first four header rows to appear on each location file at the top of each sheet.
    I enclosed "Glasgow Example" file to show how a finished location file should look.

    Thanks
    Jonathan

    Hi Jonathan,
    This should do the trick. Just replace the main procedure with this one:
