Re: Copy data from large worksheet into multiple workbooks

Test this one

Change the path here
Set WBNew = Workbooks.Open("C:\Users\Ron\Documents\mytemplate.xls")

And the paste cell here
With WBNew.Sheets("paysheet").Range("A3")

' Add worksheet to copy/Paste the unique list

'Save the file in the new folder and close it

'Close AutoFilter

Next cell

'Delete the ws2 sheet
On Error Resume Next
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
On Error GoTo 0

End With

MsgBox "Look in " & foldername & " for the files"

It has a .xls file name, so I'm guessing a normal workbook. It has 2 worksheets: "paysheet" (the one I want to paste the data to) and another one, which is used to help calculate a pivot table that is contained within "paysheet"
