Create new sheets for each row with VBA code

With the following codes, you can create new sheet based on column values, or just create new sheets for each row in Excel.

1. Press Alt + F11 keys simultaneously to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, click Insert > Module. And then paste the following code into the Module window.

VBA code: create new sheet for each row based on column

Sub parse_data()
'Update by Extendoffice 2018/3/2
    Dim xRCount As Long
    Dim xSht As Worksheet
    Dim xNSht As Worksheet
    Dim I As Long
    Dim xTRrow As Integer
    Dim xCol As New Collection
    Dim xTitle As String
    Dim xSUpdate As Boolean
    Set xSht = ActiveSheet
    On Error Resume Next
    xRCount = xSht.Cells(xSht.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
    xTitle = "A1:C1"
    xTRrow = xSht.Range(xTitle).Cells(1).Row
    For I = 2 To xRCount
        Call xCol.Add(xSht.Cells(I, 1).Text, xSht.Cells(I, 1).Text)
    Next
    xSUpdate = Application.ScreenUpdating
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For I = 1 To xCol.Count
        Call xSht.Range(xTitle).AutoFilter(1, CStr(xCol.Item(I)))
        Set xNSht = Nothing
        Set xNSht = Worksheets(CStr(xCol.Item(I)))
        If xNSht Is Nothing Then
            Set xNSht = Worksheets.Add(, Sheets(Sheets.Count))
            xNSht.Name = CStr(xCol.Item(I))
        Else
            xNSht.Move , Sheets(Sheets.Count)
        End If
        xSht.Range("A" & xTRrow & ":A" & xRCount).EntireRow.Copy xNSht.Range("A1")
        xNSht.Columns.AutoFit
    Next
    xSht.AutoFilterMode = False
    xSht.Activate
    Application.ScreenUpdating = xSUpdate
End Sub

Note: A1:C1 is the title range of your table. You can change it based on your needs.

3. Press F5 key to run the code, then new worksheets are created after all worksheets of the current workbook as below screenshot:

If you want to directly create new sheets for each row without considering the column value, you can use the following code.

VBA code: Directly create new sheet for each row

Sub RowToSheet()
	Dim xRow As Long
	Dim I As Long
	With ActiveSheet
		xRow = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
		For I = 1 To xRow
			Worksheets.Add(, Sheets(Sheets.Count)).Name = "Row " & I
			.Rows(I).Copy Sheets("Row " & I).Range("A1")
		Next I
	End With
End Sub

After running the code, each row in active worksheet will be placed in a new worksheet.

Note: The heading row will also be placed in a new sheet with this VBA code.

Hello, thanks so much for this. I'm looking to modify the macro such that it will create a sheet for each row of a column and within each sheet have a function (average) that I can populate data into and in turn have the outcome linked back into the original sheet. Is this possible? I can try to clarify further if this doesn't make sense or is ambiguous.

Hi, is there a code which would add only 1 new sheet each time the macro is run, eg 1st time the new sheet would be named on the contents of cell A1, 2nd time the macro was run the new sheet would be named on the contents of A2 etc. thanks in anticipation

Hello! I just used this code and it worked! In addition to creating a new sheet for each entry, I want to transpose it to columns and can't figure it out. So for the above example, the output for Nana would look like this - Name NanaScore 86No. 2

Nevermind it was hidden trailing spaces. I used the TRIM feature and cleaned it up. Having a row count (line count really so rows -1 prepended to the sheet would be amazing)

Please can i get help on how to automatically name the sheets using a particular column. This is for the row to sheet VBA. See below

Sub RowToSheet()

Dim xRow As Long

Dim I As Long

With ActiveSheet

xRow = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

For I = 1 To xRow

Worksheets.Add(, Sheets(Sheets.Count)).Name = "Row " & I

.Rows(I).Copy Sheets("Row " & I).Range("A1")

Next I

End With

End Sub
