CustomizationThese lines of code can be customized to personalize this macro.
40. If DupLastRow > 50 Then – If the filtered column returns more than 50 values the macro will exit to ensure the Excel can handle the request. Update this number to reflect how you want this to behave.
47. Counter = 2 ‘Assuming there is a header row – If you are not working with a header row then you should change Counter = 1
67. ActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode = False – If you don’t want the filter to be removed from the first spreadsheet make this line a comment with ‘
69. Columns(LastColumnNumber + 2).Delete – If you don’t want the duplicates column to be deleted from the first spreadsheet make this line a comment with ‘
71. MsgBox (“A Worksheet has been created for each Filter Value!”) – If you don’t want this macro to finish with a MsgBox then make this line a comment with ‘
