I think I have it figured out with this piece of VBA saved as a macro:

Sub split_up()

Dim rLastCell As Range
Dim rCells As Range
Dim strName As String
Dim lLoop As Long, lCopy As Long
Dim wbNew As Workbook

With ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
Set rLastCell = .Cells.Find(What:="*", After:=[A1], SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)

For lLoop = 1 To rLastCell.Row Step 2000
lCopy = lCopy + 1
Set wbNew = Workbooks.Add
.Range(.Cells(lLoop, 1), .Cells(lLoop + 2000, .Columns.Count)).EntireRow.Copy _
wbNew.Close SaveChanges:=True, Filename:="Chunk" & lCopy & "Rows" & lLoop & "-" & lLoop + 2000
Next lLoop
End With

End Sub

What I don't know how to do is save the orininal workbook name instead of "chunk"........ A modification to that line of code would be very cool.

Does anyone have a technique or a macro that will split an excel
spreadsheet up into 2000 row sheets?
