The following code example copies the formulas in cells A1:D4 on Sheet1 into cells E5:H8 on Sheet2.

Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:D4").Copy _ 
    destination:=Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("E5")

The following code example inspects the value in column D for each row on Sheet1. If the value in column D equals A, the entire row is copied onto SheetA in the next empty row. If the value equals B, the row is copied onto SheetB.

Public Sub CopyRows() 
    Sheets("Sheet1").Select 
    ' Find the last row of data 
    FinalRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row 
    ' Loop through each row 
    For x = 2 To FinalRow 
        ' Decide if to copy based on column D 
        ThisValue = Cells(x, 4).Value 
        If ThisValue = "A" Then 
            Cells(x, 1).Resize(1, 33).Copy 
            Sheets("SheetA").Select 
            NextRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1 
            Cells(NextRow, 1).Select 
            ActiveSheet.Paste 
            Sheets("Sheet1").Select 
        ElseIf ThisValue = "B" Then 
            Cells(x, 1).Resize(1, 33).Copy 
            Sheets("SheetB").Select 
            NextRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1 
            Cells(NextRow, 1).Select
