See if you can't edit this to help you...

I need a macro that will copy a row from one worksheet, to another blank worksheet IF a certain condition is met. Say for example, if on my first worksheet, I have 10 columns of data, and 100 rows, and the user wants to have all the rows with an "X" in the first column to be copied to the blank worksheet.

NOTE - this macro assumes that your first row of data is an header row.

Sub Extract_Data()
'Macro written by Barrie Davidson

'Variables used by the macro
Dim FilterCriteria
Dim CurrentFileName As String
Dim NewFileName As String

'Get the current file's name
CurrentFileName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
'Select the first 10 columns and first 100 rows
'(note you can change this to meet your requirements)
'Apply Autofilter
'Get the filter's criteria from the user
FilterCriteria = InputBox("Enter condition to be met")
'Filter the data based on the user's input
'NOTE - this filter is on column A (field:=1), to change
'to a different column you need to change the field number
Selection.AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:=FilterCriteria
'Select the visible cells (the filtered data)
'Copy the cells
'Open a new file
Workbooks.Add Template:="Workbook"
'Get this file's name
NewFileName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
'Make sure you are in cell A1
'Paste the copied cells
'Clear the clipboard contents
Application.CutCopyMode = False
'Go back to the original file
'Clear the autofilter
Selection.AutoFilter field:=1
'Take the Autofilter off
'Go to A1

End Sub
