Hi LeeStink,

Try this code.
Sub InsertBlankRow()

    i = 6

    With ActiveSheet

        Do While .Cells(i, 3) <> ""

            If .Cells(i, 3) = "Non-Target" Then

                Rows(i + 1 & ":" & i + 1).Insert Shift:=xlDown

                i = i + 1

            End If

            i = i + 1

        Loop

    End With

    Range("A6").Select

End Sub

Recommend a split between http:#a24134040 and http:#a24133143 to recognise the first solution provided by Saurabh and the different approach by me which will cut run time
