Copy Multiple Worksheets to Separate Workbooks VBA

Hi There,

Is there VBA code that you can provide that would allow me to loop through and save multiple worksheets as separate workbooks?

The easiest way I could think of was to define separate arrays, and then write separate code to save each array of worksheets as a separate workbook.  What I'm wondering is how to create a nested array and loop through that, where each subarray would have a list of the specific sheet names that I want to save as a different workbook.

Sub CopyWorksheet()

Dim wbNew As Workbook
Dim strFilename As String

Dim ArrayOne As Sheets
Dim ArrayTwo As Sheets

Set ArrayOne = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(Array("Sheet1", "Sheet3"))
strFilename = ArrayOne(1).Name
Set wbNew = ActiveWorkbook
wbNew.SaveAs ThisWorkbook.Path & Application.PathSeparator & strFilename
wbNew.Close SaveChanges:=False

Set ArrayTwo = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(Array("Sheet1", "Sheet4"))
strFilename = ArrayTwo(1).Name
Set wbNew = ActiveWorkbook
wbNew.SaveAs ThisWorkbook.Path & Application.PathSeparator & strFilename
wbNew.Close SaveChanges:=False

End Sub

For Each strSheets In Split(strArray, ";")
    aSheets = Split(strSheets, ",")
    Set myArray = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(aSheets)
