Overview for Split Worksheet

Use Split Worksheet to divide the active worksheet into two or more new worksheets based on unique values or combinations of values in one or more grouping variables. Generally, Split Worksheet is most useful when it will create only a few new worksheets. Numerous worksheets can be cumbersome to manage.
