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
