Jim -
This works better...the previous version had the .xlsx in the middle of the
file name...

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

Dim wrkname As String

Dim posfound As Integer

Dim length1 As Integer


wrkname = ThisWorkbook.Name

length1 = Len(wrkname)

posfound = InStr(1, wrkname, ".xlsx")

wrkname = Mid(wrkname, 1, (length1 - (length1 - posfound + 1)))



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 _

Destination:=wbNew.Sheets(1).Range("A1")

wbNew.Close SaveChanges:=True, Filename:=wrkname & lCopy & "Rows" & lLoop
& "-" & lLoop + 2000

Next lLoop

End With

End Sub

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 _
Destination:=wbNew.Sheets(1).Range("A1")
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.

I have a very large workbook with one worksheet that has 53K plus rows

the software where the data will be uploaded to has a size limit on it's
up load. (all local servers to me)

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