Here's a macro I wrote years ago for a similar purpose. There are 3 assumptions
built into the code which you can alter as needed:
1. The worksheet with the data  has exactly one row of headings, in row 1.
2. Every column of data has a heading.
3. The customer  name or number is in column A.

Sub SplitCustomers()
'Declare variables
Dim CellRef1 As Object, BaseSht As String
Dim a As Integer, x As Integer, MT As Integer
Dim CurrCust As String, PrevCust As String
Dim EndCol As Integer
BaseSht$ = ActiveSheet.Name
'ASSUMES sheet  HAS HEADINGS IN ROW 1 ONLY!
'ASSUMES CUSTOMER NAME/ID IS IN COLUMN A!
Range("A2").Activate
a% = ActiveCell.Row
PrevCust$ = ActiveCell.Value
'ASSUMES THERE IS A HEADING FOR EVERY COLUMN WITH DATA!
EndCol% = Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
MT% = 0
'Go to second row, first column. Walk down column A and test value of
'every cell. Stop when 100 consecutive empty cells are encountered.
Do While MT% < 100
Set CellRef1 = Cells(a%, 1)
CellRef1.Activate
CellRef1.Select
CurrCust$ = CellRef1.Value
'If the current cell is empty, add  1 to MT, the empty cell counter.
If CurrCust$ = "" Then
MT% = MT% + 1
Else
'If the current cell is not empty, reset MT. Check if its value
'(CurrCust$) is the same as the previous row (PrevCust$). If it's not
'the same, copy cols 1 through EndCol% for all the PrevCust$ rows (including
'row 1). Paste them onto a new sheet, then return to the original sheet
'(BaseSht$). Delete all the PrevCust$ rows (but not row 1). Assign the new
'CurrCust$ to PrevCust$. Reset a% to 1 (first row. Will then increment
'it).
MT% = 0
If CurrCust$ <> PrevCust$ Then
Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(a% - 1, EndCol%)).Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets.Add
ActiveSheet.Paste
ActiveSheet.Name = Cells(2, 1).Value
Sheets(BaseSht$).Activate
Range(Cells(2, 1), Cells(a% - 1, EndCol%)).Select
Selection.EntireRow.Delete
PrevCust$ = CurrCust$
a% = 1
End If
End If
a% = a% + 1
Loop
End Sub

If you paste this code into a code module in its own workbook, then to run it
you should:
1. Open the workbook with the macro.
2. Open the workbook with the AS/400 data. Make sure the correct sheet is
active by clicking in any cell on that sheet.
3. Run the SplitCustomers macro (Tools >> Macro >> Macros... Select
SplitCustomers, then click Run).

I have another question. If i have a workseet which gets its all the
data from AS/400 and i want to transfer all that data  to another
sheet, how can i do it programmatically. Can you please guide me on
that. Basically the whole idea is to copy all the information from one
sheet to another, So that whenever the first sheet  is refreshed, the
data on the second sheet gets refreshed automatically. Thanks. I will
really appreciate that.
