Excel macro

I need to do the following inside an excel macro.  I will insert some information on row 2 of a spreadsheet.  I need that row copied and pasted on all even rows of that spreadsheet until the end of the recordset, starting on row 4.   Can anyone help with the code?

Thanks in advance,

IPT

Not quite sure what you mean by recordset, but the code below will copy row 2 into every even row of the spread sheet up until the last row, row 65536. Hope this helps you out.

Dim i
For i = 4 To 65536 Step 2
    Rows("2:2").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Rows(i & ":" & i).Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
Next i

These will run about 5x faster (or more) than the code posted above because calculations and screen updates are disabled...  Some display progress in the statusbar so you have an idea of when the macro will complete.

'-------------------------------------
' Copy to entire spreadsheet (status bar updates)
'-------------------------------------
Sub CopyToAllRows()
    Dim i
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
    For i = 4 To 65536 Step 2
        rows("2:2").Select
        Selection.Copy
        rows(i & ":" & i).Select
        If i Mod 1000 = 0 Then Application.StatusBar = "Processing Line #: " & i & "     " & "Percent Completed: " & Round((i / 65536) * 100, 2) & "%"
        ActiveSheet.Paste
    Next i
    Application.StatusBar = "Processing Completed!"
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
End Sub

'-------------------------------------
' Copy only to "used" rows (status bar updates)
'-------------------------------------
Sub CopyToUsedRows()
    Dim i
    Dim Rng As Range
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Set Rng = ActiveSheet.UsedRange
    For i = 4 To Rng.rows.Count Step 2
        rows("2:2").Select
        Selection.Copy
        rows(i & ":" & i).Select
        If i Mod 1000 = 0 Then Application.StatusBar = "Processing Line #: " & i & "     " & "Percent Completed: " & Round((i / Rng.rows.Count) * 100, 2) & "%"
        ActiveSheet.Paste
    Next i
    Application.StatusBar = "Processing Completed!"
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
End Sub
