The Offset property in VBA

I've working on a stock application and have written this code for a user form which adds new products to a sheet. The code I have for the form is as follows:

Private Sub Add_click()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
StockList.Range("Newinfo").Select
Selection.EntireRow.Insert
StockList.Range("Newinfo").Offset(-1, 0).Value = Supplier.Value
StockList.Range("Newinfo").Offset(-1, 1).Value = Product_Name.Value
StockList.Range("Newinfo").Offset(-1, 2).Value = Order_Code.Value
StockList.Range("Newinfo").Offset(-1, 3).Value = Price.Value
StockList.Range("Newinfo").Offset(-1, 4).Value = Stock_Available.Value
Addprod.Hide
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

I have five colomns on this sheet, and so I want data from each field on the form to go into one colomn respectively. The problem I'm having is that it enters the data right for all 5 (e.g. A20-E20), but then continues to insert data from the last field 'Stock_available' on the user form into F20-I20. Why Does it repeat the input just for the 'Stock_Available.Value'. Is there something wrong with this line:

StockList.Range("Newinfo").Offset(-1, 4).Value = Stock_Available.Value

Thanks in advance.

If Range("NewInfo") is bigger than a single cell, each of the offset instructions is trying to populate a range equivalent in size with the value.
Range"A1:A5").Offset(0,2)=1     'Fills C1:C5 with 1

If I understand your intent and if Range("NewInfo") refers to cells A21:E21, you could try the following:
StockList.Range("Newinfo").Offset(-1, 0)=Array(Supplier,Product_Name,Order_Code,Price,Stock_Available)
0

Bitemarx48,
Welcome to Experts Exchange!

This question probably would probably have gotten answered quicker in the Excel TA, but thanks for the grade anyway.
