Copy & insert rows fom one sheet to another based on data in main sheet
I have been trying to solve this problem but canít seem to. I would be grateful if one of you awesome excel users would be able to help.
I have attached a sample sheet below.
I have one main sheet called Project Details where I want to input all data.
In the sub-sheets i.e (Jhon, Adam, Josh,Katy..etc) I only input the headers.
I want to create a macro so that in the main sheet (Project Details) any Column from C to F that shows Jhonís name, that whole row will be moved into Jhonís sheet.
For example, Row 7 shows Jhons name is cell C7 so I want the whole of row 7 from (A to O) to copy into Jhons sheet using the macro.
Similarly, Row 8 shows Jhons name is cell D8 so I want the whole of row 8 from (A to O) to copied into Jhons sheet
Since Jhons name isnít in row 10, that row will not be moved into Jhons sheet.
I hope that makes sense and one of you will be able to assist me.
I am new to VBA, I created a macro but canít seem to make it work.
All your help will be truly appreciated.

Try the following. Your input sheet was not well organised (in terms of column titles and used range) so I explictly named the address of the region where the names can be found. You will need to modify this if your names list grows or shrinks. I set my code to add the named sheets and it will fail if you already have sheets with those names. Finally, you will need to add a reference to "Microsoft Scripting Runtime" under Tools > References
Sub MakeSheets() Dim d As Object, rng As Range, k, tmp As String Dim aSht As Worksheet, sAdd As String Dim iRows As Integer, cFound As Range sAdd = "C7:F11" Set d = CreateObject("scripting.dictionary") For Each rng In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Project Details").Range(sAdd) tmp = Trim(rng.Value) If Len(tmp) > 0 Then d(tmp) = d(tmp) + 1 Next rng For Each k In d.Keys Debug.Print k, d(k) Sheets("Project Details").Copy after:=Sheets(Sheets.Count) Set aSht = ActiveSheet aSht.name = k With aSht Set rng = aSht.Range(sAdd) For iRows = rng.Rows.Count To 1 Step -1 Set cFound = rng.Rows(iRows).Find(k, LookIn:=xlValues) If cFound Is Nothing Then rng.Rows(iRows).EntireRow.Delete Next iRows End With Next k End SubAndrew Lockton, Chrysalis Design, Melbourne Australia
