Hi guys,

I have a worksheet with about 15000 records organized in a table as follows;

Field1   Fiel 2      Field3    Field4    Field5    Field6
Data     Name1  Data      data        data      data
data     Name1   data      data        data      data
Data     Name2 Data      data        data       data
data     Name2   data      data        data      data

Can anyone give the VBA code to split the worksheet in multiple worksheets = Number of Names.
For each Name in the Field 2 I would like to have a worksheet. The number of records is different from one name to another. So a name can have 33 records and another name 333 records.       The number of names is about 70.
Thank you very much,

Yes and  maybe is easier for you and more useful to me to split the worksheet in 70 excel files supposing we have 70 names.

Try

Sub split2sheets()
    Dim sws As Worksheet
    Dim tws As Worksheet
    Dim i As Long
    Dim rstrt As Long
    Dim rend As Long
    Set sws = ActiveSheet
    rstrt = 2
    For i = 3 To sws.Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
        If sws.Cells(i, 2) <> sws.Cells(i - 1, 2) Then
            Set tws = Worksheets.Add
            tws.Name = sws.Cells(rstrt, 2)
            sws.Range("A1").EntireRow.Copy tws.Range("A1")
            sws.Range(sws.Cells(rstrt, 1), sws.Cells(i - 1, 1)).EntireRow.Copy tws.Range("A2")
            rstrt = i
        End If
    Next i
End Sub
