Copy to worksheets


J.W. Aldridge

My data is in Columns A:F on sheet named "summary".
Headers are in row 1.
I need a sheet created for each unique name in column C.
On each sheet created, the data should start at A18. (Headers at a17).

This code has been working for over 6 months, now I am getting errors
in places I would'nt normally imagine.

Sub Copy_To_Worksheets()
Dim My_Range As Range
Dim FieldNum As Long
Dim CalcMode As Long
Dim ViewMode As Long
Dim ws2 As Worksheet
Dim Lrow As Long
Dim cell As Range
Dim CCount As Long
Dim WSNew As Worksheet
Dim ErrNum As Long
Dim DestRange As Range
Dim Lr As Long

'Set filter range on ActiveSheet: A1 is the top left cell of your
filter range
'and the header of the first column, D is the last column in the
filter range.
'You can also add the sheet name to the code like this :
'Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:D" & LastRow(Worksheets
'No need that the sheet is active then when you run the macro when
you use this.
