This is a little short on details.

What's in the list?
Create sheets in the same workbook?
Does the sheet with the list  always have the same name?
Which column/row is the list in?
Have you tried already and what results/errors have you gotten?
Do you have any code to post?

I have a list  of sheetnames in cells A1:A30 in sheet1. I need to create
sheets from list in same workbook.

I'm a bit busy with other things but slapped this together for you. It
should do. Another option is to create  an array, and grab all the names
first instead of going back and forth to the main sheet, but like I said
I'm busy, and this should do the trick.

Dim i As Integer
Dim a As Integer
Dim sName As String
Dim sCurrentSheet As String

sCurrentSheet = ActiveSheet.Name
i = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row

For a = 1 To i
sName = ActiveCell.Offset(a - 1, 0).Value
ActiveSheet.Name = sName

Try recording a macro in which you create  a new worksheet, and rename it to
another name.
Then use this macro as a template to loop through the cell names on sheet1.

Here's a short version:

Sub AddSheets()
Dim X, FirstSheet, CurSheet, newSheetName
FirstSheet = ActiveSheet.Name
For X = 1 To 30
If (Sheets(FirstSheet).Cells(X, 1) <> "") Then
Sheets(ActiveSheet.Name).Name = Sheets(FirstSheet).Cells(X, 1)
Sheets(Sheets(FirstSheet).Cells(X, 1).Value).Move
End If
Next X
End Sub
