Hi, I am looking for a way to export multiple excel files or multiple sheets in one excel file based on a single column. Please see attached example. The "master" sheet has all the records with same schema. The data needs to be separated by the "locationid" column. The "1 export", "2 export", "3 export" and "4 export" sheets are the results of segmenting from the master sheet.

Any tips or software that can do this would be great.

Here is a macro that uses Advanced Filter to create a list of unique items in column A, then uses AutoFilter to filter for each of those items. After each filtering step, the visible data will be copied to a new worksheet.
Sub ColumnA_Exporter()
Dim rg As Range, rgCrit
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim crit As Variant, criteria As Variant
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
With Worksheets("master")
    Set rg = .UsedRange
    Set rgCrit = rg.Cells(1, rg.Columns.Count + 2)
    rg.Columns(1).AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, CopyToRange:=rgCrit, Unique:=True
    Set rgCrit = Range(rgCrit.Cells(2, 1), .Cells(.Rows.Count, rgCrit.Column).End(xlUp))
    criteria = rgCrit.Value
    rgCrit.EntireColumn.Delete
End With

rg.Cells(1, 1).AutoFilter
For Each crit In criteria
    rg.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=crit
    rg.Copy
    Set ws = Sheets.Add(After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count))
    ws.Paste
    ws.Name = crit & " export"
Next
rg.Cells(1, 1).AutoFilter
Application.Goto rg.Cells(1, 1)
End Sub
