Hi,

pls try
Sub macro()
Dim aIds As Variant
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set origSh = ActiveSheet
Worksheets.Add
Set myRng = Range(origSh.Range("B2"), origSh.Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
myRng.Copy Destination:=ActiveSheet.Range("A1")
ActiveSheet.Range("A:A").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:=xlNo
aIds = WorksheetFunction.Index(WorksheetFunction.Transpose(Range(Range("A1"), Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).Value), 1, 0)
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
ActiveSheet.Delete
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
For Each Item In aIds
    Worksheets.Copy

    Range("A1:B1").AutoFilter field:=2, Criteria1:="<>" & Item
    Set myRng = Nothing
    On Error Resume Next
    Set myRng = Range(Range("b2"), Range("b" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
    On Error GoTo 0
    Range("B1").AutoFilter
    If Not myRng Is Nothing Then
        For Idx = myRng.Areas.Count To 1 Step -1
            myRng.Areas(Idx).EntireRow.Delete Shift:=xlUp
        Next
    End If
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs ThisWorkbook.Path & "/" & Item
    ActiveWorkbook.Close

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you have only one sheet in the workbook, that error will be produced.
Why do you want to delete that original single sheet?
