Hi,

I have an excel sheet that has about 5000+ Sku's from over 150+ vendors, my excel sheet has a vendor column ( C ), I am going throught this manually which has taken me days to copy paste each vendor in a worksheet.

I am 5 hours in and realized i did about 50%, anyway i can automate this with a code or formula?

Thank you

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

How about
Code:
Sub i8ur4re()
   Dim Cl As Range
   Dim Ws As Worksheet
   Dim Ky As Variant
   
   Set Ws = ActiveSheet
   With CreateObject("scripting.dictionary")
      For Each Cl In Ws.Range("C2", Ws.Range("C" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
         .Item(Cl.Value) = Empty
      Next Cl
      For Each Ky In .keys
         Ws.Range("A1:Z1").AutoFilter 3, Ky
         Sheets.Add(, Sheets(Sheets.Count)).Name = Ky
         Ws.AutoFilter.Range.Copy Range("A1")
      Next Ky
      Ws.AutoFilterMode = False
   End With
End Sub

      Next Ky
      Ws.AutoFilterMode = False
   End With
End Sub
I got a run-time error 1004:
Application-define or oobject-defined error.

I fixed that error, but i did get a Run-Time error 1004

You typed an invalid name for a sheet or chart. Make sure that:
The name that you type does not exceed 31 characters.
The name does not contain any of the following characters: \ / ?* [ or ]
You did not leave the name blank.

I did notice some vendor names might surpass the 31 characters, anyway around this, maybe trim at 30 characters?

This line gave the error:

Sheets.Add(, Sheets(Sheets.Count)).Name = Ky

You could use
Code:
Sheets.Add(, Sheets(Sheets.Count)).Name = Left(Ky,30)
as long as the vendor names don't contain any illegal characters.

That worked, the last problem im facing is it creates the new worksheets but they are empty, any chance i can take all the content for that vendor and move it to the new worksheet? Its currently only taking the header.
