Hi

Here is my issue:

Attached workbook contains a sample worksheet. I need to know how to extract the workbooks containing certain criteria

For example:

Column G contains the division
I want the macro to look into column AP first cell and for that cells content extract all details regarding that division into another workbook and save with the division name.

It would look for division A in column G and then copy all related fields for row 17 - 22 since those contain division A then export all those fields including  row 15 and 16 as headers into another workbook and save,


I need an answer very quickly please help

Thanks

Here is a macro that will export your data:
Sub ExportData()
Dim cel As Range, rg As Range, rgcopy As Range, rgData As Range, rgFilters As Range
Dim wb As Workbook
Dim flPath As String
flPath = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(ActiveWorkbook.FullName, FileFilter:="Excel workbooks (*.xlsx), *.xlsx", _
    Title:="Pick any workbook in the desired folder, then click 'Save'")
If flPath = "False" Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
flPath = Left(flPath, InStrRev(flPath, Application.PathSeparator))
With Worksheets("Table")
    Set rg = .Range("DF_Grid_1")
    Set rgData = rg.Offset(1, 0).Resize(rg.Rows.Count - 1, rg.Columns.Count)
    Set rgFilters = .Range("AP16")
    Set rgFilters = Range(rgFilters, rgFilters.End(xlDown))
End With
rgData.Cells(1, 1).AutoFilter
For Each cel In rgFilters
    If cel.Value <> "" Then
        rgData.AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:=cel.Value
        Set rgcopy = rgData.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
        If (rgcopy.Rows.Count > 1) Or (rgcopy.Areas.Count > 1) Then
            Set wb = Workbooks.Add
            rg.Copy ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 1)
            wb.SaveAs flPath & cel.Value & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=51
            wb.Close SaveChanges:=False
        End If
    End If
Next
rgData.AutoFilter Field:=2
End Sub

How could I manipulate so It will export it based on the division name i.e.

AA.xlsx
A.xlsx
B.xlsx

etc

FAH_,
Did you try the macro?

I anticipated your request, and wrote the macro accordingly.
