How to copy rows to new sheet based on column criteria in Excel?

For example there is a fruit purchase table, and now you need to copy records to new sheet based on specified fruit, how to get it done easily in Excel? Here I will introduce a couple of methods to copy rows to new sheet based on column criteria in Excel.


Copy rows to new sheet based on column criteria by filtering and copying

You can filter data by the specified column value, and then copy filtered out rows to a new sheet manually in Excel. Please do as follows:

1. Select the column which you will copy rows based on, in our example select the Fruit column. And then click the Data > Filter.

doc copy rows by column value 2

2. Click the Arrow besides the specified Column Header, and then only check the specified fruit in the drop down list, and click the OK button.

In our example, click the arrow besides the column header of Fruit, and then only check the Apple in the drop down list. See below screen shot:

3. Now only the records of specified fruit are filtered out. Copy these records.

4. Create a new sheet with clicking the  or  button in the Sheet Tab bar.

5. Then paste the copied records into the new sheet.

And then you will see all records about Apple is copied and saved into the new sheet. See below screen shot:

6. Repeat the Step 2-5 to copy other fruit records to new sheets.

If there are many kinds of fruits in the table, this method is a waste of much time to copy each kind of fruit records to new sheets.
