I have a table with columns: PID, Project name, ... (14 Columns) like this

PID Project_name Department Plan Effort estimation ....

111 Project1         qw          50     60

111 Project1         sw          40     50

222 Project2         sw          40     50

I want to automatically create a tab for each PID, so that I have a tab named 111 with all data with PID 111 from sheet1, tab 222 with all data with PID 222... when I import the table from Excel into Google spreadsheets. Could someone help me?

  • Welcome. The question is too broad for this site. Please add a brief description of you search/research efforts as is suggested on How to Ask. – Rubén Nov 27 at 15:49
  • Something like here webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/99344/… but here will be no tabs created automatically. I think it must be like this (pseudo code): create tabs =UNIQUE(MasterSheet!A2:A) copy data =FILTER(MasterSheet!A2:Q60000, MasterSheet!A2:A60000 = "UNIQUE PID") – Alex7 Nov 28 at 10:47
  • I found an google sheet add-on Tabify, which does exactly what I'm looking for, but it unfortunately hangs after some time (my table has ~60000 rows). – Alex7 Nov 28 at 11:29
  • An add-on works well, it hangs because of the limit of 5000000 cells. – Alex7 Nov 28 at 12:28
  • Are you saying that you need 60000 tabs? – Rubén Nov 28 at 13:05

The problem is solved. Google sheet add-on Tabify does that. This add-on allows you to filter sheet results into new tabs.

"Tabify allows you to organize your spreadsheet data or Form Responses by creating a tab for each unique value found in a column. It will add tabs (sheets) to the spreadsheet based on the column you choose."
