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! Turn Worksheets into 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 Create Worksheet per Filter Value!
