You have your data in Worksheets but you need separate Workbooks. The tedious way is to open a bunch of blank Workbooks. Then copy and paste information from each Worksheet and save each Workbook onto your computer. Good news is there is a better way with VBA! Save Worksheets as Workbooks is an Excel macro that will take existing worksheets and save them as their own workbook.   By default, the path of the Active Workbook will be used so the new Workbooks are saved at the same location. (Customize: You can indicate a different path in the VBA code) Once saved the Worksheet name will become the new Workbook name. This macro is a great way separate your data making it easier to send Workbooks as attachments to specific recipients.If you need a quick way to move information into their own worksheet checkout our macro Excel Create Worksheet per Filter Value!

Outlook Send Same Email to Different Recipients | VBA Macro #31

To BCC or to not BCC?  That is the question that comes to mind when emailing a variety of different recipients.  This is especially important if you are working with multiple clients.  You can BCC recipients so they can’t click reply all. Recipients won’t see who was emailed but that is actually the problem.  The value is knowing who was emailed so customers know if additional follow-up is needed.  Instead you can CC recipients but once someone hits Reply All the conversation can get out of control.  This can create a bigger problem if the email thread is across multiple parties. Sending separate emails creates more value for the customer but how do you do this efficiently and effectively? You could create new emails do a lot of copying and pasting but this isn’t a sustainable process. Good news is there is always a better way with VBA! Our new Outlook macro makes sending the same email to different recipients so easy!
