You will need to do this in multiple steps, with the Filters\Remove\Columns to remove a different set of unwanted columns each time.

I understand the overall process of splitting the columns, I am having difficulty export the columns I split to a new file. Any suggestions.

File A goes to a different output file each time - just change the Output Filter setting to direct output to a new file.

This process can be automated from a JScript script - see File Menu\Export for the options.
