Hi - got a problem i hope you'd be able to help me solve.

I have  workbook (attached here) with two sheets, "Data Input" & "Format" - "Format" is a hidden sheet. In the "Data Input" sheet I have 1 header row (row 1) and X data rows (rows 2-X). I need to for each data-row:

- Create a copy of the "Format" sheet
- Copy the current data row from "Data Input" into the newly created copy of "Format" in A36:X36
- set the name of the newly created sheet to the value in cell B36
- Hide range A35:X36 in the newly created sheet

When done for all data-rows i need to

- Hide the "Data Input" sheet

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Ok here is the file. Please run the macro Sample in Module 1.


Code Used

Sub Sample()
    Dim i As Long, LastRow As Long
    Dim ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet
    On Error GoTo Whoa
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Set ws1 = Sheets("Data Input")
    LastRow = ws1.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Sheets("Format").Visible = True
    For i = 2 To LastRow
        Sheets("Format").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
        Set ws2 = ActiveSheet
        ws2.Name = ws1.Range("B" & i).Value
        ws1.Range("A" & i & ":X" & i).Copy _
        ws2.Rows("35:36").EntireRow.Hidden = True
    Next i
    Sheets("Format").Visible = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    Exit Sub
    MsgBox Err.Description
