Copy this to your master workbook, and run it from there.

Sub SplitWorkbook()
    Dim sht As Worksheet
    For Each sht In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
        If sht.Name <> "main" Then
            sht.Copy
            With ActiveSheet.Cells
                .Copy
                .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
                .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats
            End With
            ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:\my documents\team\mi\new\" & sht.Name & ".xls"
