Tab creation failure using macro

0 votes

I needed to work with a huge Excel file, but utilising VBA presented some challenges.

There are 53 columns across all 28 tabs in this excel document. Some years have more people on the tabs that are about the years. Both the first column's subject, Person system ID, and the second column's subject, his name, are all capitalised.

I attempted to use Chat GPT to construct a VBA code that would map every tab and create a separate tab for every distinct name and save, but I encountered some errors.

Here is the code that chat GPT wrote:

Function IsInArray(arr, val) As Boolean
    Dim found As Boolean
    found = False
    If IsArray(arr) And Not IsEmpty(arr) Then
        Dim i As Long
        For i = LBound(arr) To UBound(arr)
            If arr(i) = val Then
                found = True
                Exit For
            End If
        Next i
    End If
    IsInArray = found
End Function

Sub Create_Individual_Sheets()
    Dim SheetName As String
    Dim NameList() As String
    Dim LastRow As Long
    Dim Year As Integer
    Dim Sheet As Worksheet
    Dim NewSheet As Worksheet
    Dim Name As Variant
    Dim i As Long
    Dim Folder As String
    Folder = "C:\Users\Jorjao\Desktop\Folder"
    For Year = 1994 To 2022
        Set Sheet = Worksheets(CStr(Year))
        LastRow = Sheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
        'loop through the name column in the current sheet and add to the name list
        For i = 2 To LastRow
            Name = UCase(Sheet.Cells(i, 2).Value)
            If Not IsInArray(NameList, Name) Then
                ReDim Preserve NameList(UBound(NameList) + 1)
                NameList(UBound(NameList)) = Name
            End If
        Next i
    Next Year
    'loop through the name list and create an individual sheet for each name
    For Each Name In NameList
        Set NewSheet = ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Add(After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count))
        SheetName = Replace(Name, " ", "_")
        NewSheet.Name = SheetName
        'loop through each sheet and copy the rows with the current name to the individual sheet
        For Year = 1994 To 2022
            Set Sheet = Worksheets(CStr(Year))
            LastRow = Sheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
            'loop through the name column in the current sheet and check if the current name is present
            For i = 2 To LastRow
                If UCase(Sheet.Cells(i, 2).Value) = Name Then
                    Sheet.Rows(i).Copy Destination:=NewSheet.Rows(NewSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row.Offset(1))
                End If
            Next i
        Next Year
        'save the new sheet in a folder
        ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=Folder & SheetName & ".xlsx"
        ActiveWorkbook.Close savechanges:=False
    Next Name
End Sub

Using this code, I got:

Runtime error 9

Subscript out of range

I also tried to change somethings, but I also got some runtime error like 13 and 424.
