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!
