Excel/Separating data into workbooks and sheets

Question
Data
Data  
Hello

I have been working on the attendance data of a company of around 20/30 employees. I have attached an image of part of my data along with this email. I have managed to separate the data for each employee. However, what I am trying to accomplish now is to separate the sheet of an employee into further sheets based on the date in column A. After the sheets have been separated into months for each employee, I would also like to separate the data for each employee in separate excel files. Your help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,
Abdullah

Answer
1) 'SHEETS to WORKBOOKS (1)

Here's a macro for taking a multi-sheet workbook with formulas and creating individual formula-free wbs from each sheet.  The date is added to the workbook names to give a reference as to when the wbs were created.

2) Separating a single sheet into months of data

This isn't a trivial question, it would be a bit of programming time to construct a macro to separate a single sheet into multiple sheets based on the dates in specific columns.
