# Using a macro to add data to worksheets in XL 2003

Posted on 2011-03-25
195 Views
I have a worksheet that keeps track of conference room reservations. I have 4 workbooks each with one quarter of the year for 2011. For the second quarter, on each worksheet for the workbook (see attached), I need to insert 17 Central 4 cells below 17 North on each sheet. So for instance, on the April sheet, 17 Central is on A 30, A 68, etc. I have entered 4 manually, but would need a macro to automate this process for the remainder of the April sheet and the other two months in this workbook, and in the workbooks containing the remaining two quarters of the year.

Try Macro below
``````Sub Insert()
Dim Worksheet As Worksheet
Dim i As Integer
For Each Worksheet In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
With Worksheet
For i = 2 To .Cells(Worksheet.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
If Trim(.Cells(i, 1).Value) = "17 North" Then
.Cells(i + 4, 1).Value = "17 Central"
End If
Next i
End With
Next Worksheet

End Sub
``````

A word of caution:

>>   Dim i As Integer

Never, ever, EVER declare a row-counting variable as Integer.  The moment you get to Row 32,768, you will get a runtime error.

Just don't use Integer, period.  Use Long instead.  In the 70's it made senseto save every byte you could in your programming, but that was 40 years ago.

I also agreed. For this example, integer is good enough but long is the best.
