Insert multiple rows in Excel?

Posted on 2006-10-31

There used to be an option in the Insert menu of Excel that said "Rows..." which would prompt you for how many rows you wanted to insert.

Now it is just Insert > Rows, which inserts a single row with no prompt.

We are currently on Exel 2k3 with SP 2 installed.

Am I missing something? Did the option move or am I looking in the wrong spot?

Thanks!

Hi DataDudes,

To insert multiple rows, select the rows above which you want to insert rows. Select the same number of rows as you want to insert. For example, to insert three new rows, you need to select three rows.

I know it, would be nice to have an input box or something like before. I guess MS thought this was an improvement.

Gone. I don't remember when it was there before. :(
I use the F4 key. I'll insert my first row, then hit F4 for each additional row I want.

here is a macro i wrote for you that will accomplish the same task.  highlight any cell in the row at which you want to insert more rows then run this macro.  you can add a button to your toolbar and link it to this macro, use a key combination or run from the macro menu (Alt+F8).  save this code in your personal macro workbook and it will be available to any worksheet you are working with.  if you need help doing any of the aforementioned, let me know..
