Hello,
I have 200 cells in column D with text in them. I want to use a macro to generate 200 separate text files containing each individual cell contents. If possible, I'd like to name of each text file to be based on the cell adjacent in Column C. Using the macro below, I can generate a text file from what ever cell I have highlighted. Since I'm not a good macro writer, I'm not sure how to modify the code so it does what I need. If someone could help me out I would be so grateful!!!

Sub Export()
Dim r As Range, c As Range
Dim sTemp As String

Open "c:\MyOutput.txt" For Output As #1
For Each r In Selection.Rows
sTemp = ""
For Each c In r.Cells
sTemp = sTemp & c.Text & Chr(9)
Next c

'Get rid of trailing tabs
While Right(sTemp, 1) = Chr(9)
sTemp = Left(sTemp, Len(sTemp) - 1)
Wend
Print #1, sTemp
Next r
Close #1


End Sub

I got my answer from another site. Here is the code in case anyone is interested:

Sub Export()
Dim cell As Range
Dim sTemp As String

VBA.FileSystem.MkDir "c:\TextFileHolder\"
For Each cell In [D1:D200]
Open "c:\TextFileHolder\" & cell.Offset(0, -1).Value & ".txt" For Output As #1
sTemp = cell.Value

'Get rid of trailing tabs
While Right(sTemp, 1) = Chr(9)
sTemp = Left(sTemp, Len(sTemp) - 1)
Wend

Print #1, sTemp

Close #1
Next
End Sub
