    How to Split Excel Spreadsheets into new .xls files based on their cell names?

    Hi,

    I need to split a large worksheet up into multiple worksheets. What I need done:

    1) A macro to split all spreadsheets and save them as .xls files with the name of their corresponding tab.
    2) For formatting not to be lost e.g. merged cells. Cell functions etc can be lost.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I tried using this code below but it had a large amount of debug issues and lost the formatting of the cells.

    Hi Ardiko,

    I changed your code just a little (trimmed it a bit) - see if it works for you:

    BTW - you should get used to using the Option Explicit and declaring your variables - it will save you headaches

    Thanks xladept! I'll try this out now.

    You know of any good videos on Option Explicit and declaring your variables? Never did any coding in my life =\

    Check out the tips and tutorials forum. And, I understand that youtube has excel tutorials. But, you should have a reference book for VBA coding. (I learned with Steve Romans "Writing Excel Macros" by O'Reilly and many have John Walkenbach's "Excel 20xx Power Programming" - I got a copy from Amazon for about $25)

    BTW - Let me know if the formats don't transfer
