I get some data from the web which i need to format it. I created below code as new to vb i might have taken an lengthy approach.

this is what it does

Once i copy paste data in sheet 1

1.Delete Column A
2.Delete Blank Rows based on column C
3.Add a New sheet with Name "saffolla" - Can i add current day to the file name
4.Copy paste values from Sheet1 to newsheet ("Saffolla 23-07-2016")
5.Change Col to "MM/DD/YYYY" format
6. Autofit all columns in new sheet
7.Update Headings
8. delete sheet1

The challenge that i the macro have to be performed for every new sheet (current day)
and deleting sheet1

Sub FormatIt()
Columns(1).EntireColumn.Delete
 
 Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Columns("C:C").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).EntireRow.Delete
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Dim rng As Range
Worksheets.Add(After:=Worksheets(Worksheets.Count)).Name = "Saffola"
Set rng = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:F2000")
Worksheets("Saffola").Range("A1").Resize(rng.Rows.Count, rng.Columns.Count).Cells.Value = rng.Cells.Value
 
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Set ws = Worksheets("Saffola")
    Columns(1).NumberFormat = "MM/DD/YYYY"
    
       For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        With ws.Rows(1).Font
            .Bold = True
        End With
        Application.Goto [A1]
    Next ws
    Worksheets("Saffola").Columns("A:I").AutoFit
    Sheet1.Delete
End Sub
