Need to pages into individual books

Occasional Visitor

Hi there, I am extremely new to using excel and I have run into a problem that I need help with.

I have a spreadsheet open that lists equipment at stations. This is all listed in one file under separate

"tabs" (at the bottom of the screen) . I need them to be separate files. Does anyone know of an easy way

to break this large file into separate files referenced by the "tabs" that I mentioned earlier?

Thanks very much!

Here is a macro you can run:

Sub SplitWorkbook()
    Dim strPath As String
    Dim wsh As Worksheet
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    strPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path
    If Right(strPath, 1) <> Application.PathSeparator Then
        strPath = strPath & Application.PathSeparator
    End If
    For Each wsh In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=strPath & wsh.Name & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook
        ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=False
    Next wsh
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
