Please help Question about Excel Files and Unix


I have an excel file , it has 4 tabs , each having specific details

How do I seperate each of these tabs and load them into 3 different excel files Using Unix

That is the customer tab has to be converted into an excel called customer.xls , the payments tab has to be converted to an excel called payments.xls and the address tab into address.xls

Copy the excel file to 4 different filenames, delete all bar one tab from each, leaving a different tab remaining on each, done.

If you need it automated, maybe using a VBA script in Excel would be easier?
