consolidate or create a new vba code for performing tasks

Last Modified: 2016-09-07
Below are the steps that i want to perform in a excel file

Step 1: Delete first 6 rows
Step 2: Filter by column A and delete blank rows
Step 3: Based on Column "C" Create a new excel file for uniq values (example if have value as "1" in column C for three rows it have to create new file as "Australia_1" in the drive specified by user or in the same drive where the macro is being run

or if i am not clear on the step 3 if i create a pivot by column c and for each value of the count in need a separate file

to perform above tasks I have gathered some code from various websites

I have about 3 codes taken from different websites

The first ( Sub sbVBS_To_Delete_EntireRow_For_Loop()) macro deletes first 6 rows
The Second one  (Sub DeleteRows()) filters Col A and delete blanks
The Third one (parse_data()) copies the data for all the unique values from column C and creates a new sheet
the fourth one (Sub newfile()) create a new work file

I have two questions
1. How can I consolidate all into one code and if possible how can create as an application or UI
2. when creating a new file how can i add a prefix to the file name along with worksheet name (for example every filename starts with "Australia"

Sub sbVBS_To_Delete_EntireRow_For_Loop()
Dim iCntr
For iCntr = 1 To 6 Step 1
End Sub

Sub DeleteRows()
    With ActiveSheet
        .AutoFilterMode = False 'remove filter
        With .Range("A:Q")
            .AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="="
            On Error Resume Next ' for the case when there is no visible rows
            .Resize(.Rows.Count - 1).Offset(1, 0).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
            On Error GoTo 0
        End With
        .AutoFilterMode = False 'remove filter
    End With
End Sub
