Running Reports Using Publisher for Excel



I am wondering if I could get some assistance in finalizing some projects in which I am transitioning reports processes traditionally run using Macro-enabled VBA-based workbooks to PowerBI.


Eventually we will be transitioning to using PowerBI service to deliver finalized reports but I have been advised that during this transition phase I am to continue using Excel as the final deliverable.  As such, I have built the PowerBI to run the requisitie data, published it to PowerBI cloud, imported the data into excel using the Publisher add-on, and built the graphs/charts that mimic the existing report.


What I would like to be able to do now is have an automated process whereby the "Market" filter I have on each of the graphs and charts is cycled through and a new excel workbook is created for each of the markets available in the filter.


So for instance I have 6 sheets on my template and 20 markets.  I would like, in the end, 20 new Excel workbooks for each of those markets each with the 6 sheets I have on the template.


Can VBA do this?  Is there a better way?  I would like to remove as much manual effort as possible in the creation of these reports.
