Macro to split excel into separate workbooks

Occasional Visitor

Please help.  I am not new to excel but new to macros and VBAs, I have a large spreadsheet that I would like the data to pull out specific date based on a column and then create a separate workbook for each heading.

Here is a sample of the workbook.  I would like it to create new workbooks in the same format, with just the individual site information in each workbook.  And the workbooks would be named after the sites.  Any help would be appreciated. 

I found a you tube and worked through it, but it would only create new worksheets within the workbook, with the site names as the sheet names and copy the heading line, but no data and then I kept getting an activesheet.name = cell.value error.    

 

Here are two examples of what I would like it to look like after running the macro on the master data.

Try this (based on an example by Ron de Bruin):

Sub Copy_To_Workbooks()
    Dim My_Range As Range
    Dim FieldNum As Long
    Dim FileExtStr As String
    Dim FileFormatNum As Long
    Dim CalcMode As Long
    Dim ViewMode As Long
    Dim ws2 As Worksheet
    Dim MyPath As String
    Dim foldername As String
    Dim Lrow As Long
    Dim cell As Range
    Dim CCount As Long
    Dim WSNew As Worksheet
    Dim ErrNum As Long

    Set My_Range = ActiveSheet.UsedRange

    If ActiveWorkbook.ProtectStructure = True Or _
       My_Range.Parent.ProtectContents = True Then
        MsgBox "Sorry, not working when the workbook or worksheet is protected", _
               vbOKOnly, "Copy to new workbook"
        Exit Sub
    End If

    'This example filters on the 7th  column in the range
    FieldNum = 7

    'Turn off AutoFilter
    My_Range.Parent.AutoFilterMode = False

    FileExtStr = ".xlsx"
    FileFormatNum = xlOpenXMLWorkbook

    'Change ScreenUpdating, Calculation, EnableEvents, ....
    With Application
        CalcMode = .Calculation
        .Calculation = xlCalculationManual
        .ScreenUpdating = False
        .EnableEvents = False
    End With
    ViewMode = ActiveWindow.View
    ActiveWindow.View = xlNormalView
    ActiveSheet.DisplayPageBreaks = False

    My_Range.Sort Key1:=Cells(1, FieldNum), Header:=xlYes

    ' Add worksheet to copy/paste the unique list
    Set ws2 = Worksheets.Add(After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count))

    MyPath = ThisWorkbook.Path

    'Add a slash at the end if the user forget it
    If Right(MyPath, 1) <> "\" Then
        MyPath = MyPath & "\"
    End If

    With ws2
        'first we copy the Unique data from the filter field to ws2
        My_Range.Columns(FieldNum).AdvancedFilter _
            Action:=xlFilterCopy, _
            CopyToRange:=.Range("A3"), Unique:=True

        'loop through the unique list in ws2 and filter/copy to a new sheet
        Lrow = .Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
        For Each cell In .Range("A4:A" & Lrow)

            'Filter the range
            My_Range.AutoFilter Field:=FieldNum, Criteria1:="=" & _
             Replace(Replace(Replace(cell.Value, "~", "~~"), "*", "~*"), "?", "~?")

            'Check if there are no more then 8192 areas(limit of areas)
            CCount = 0
            On Error Resume Next
            CCount = My_Range.Columns(1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible) _
                     .Areas(1).Cells.Count
            On Error GoTo 0
            If CCount = 0 Then
                MsgBox "There are more than 8192 areas for the value : " & cell.Value _
                     & vbNewLine & "It is not possible to copy the visible data." _
                     & vbNewLine & "Tip: Sort your data before you use this macro.", _
                       vbOKOnly, "Split in worksheets"
            Else
                'Add new workbook with one sheet
                Set WSNew = Workbooks.Add(xlWBATWorksheet).Worksheets(1)
                WSNew.Name = cell.Value

                'Copy/paste the visible data to the new workbook
                My_Range.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy
                With WSNew.Range("A1")

                    .Select
                End With

                'Save the file in the new folder and close it
                On Error Resume Next
