Dear Experts:

I wonder whether the following is feasible using VBA:

I got a table with 7 columns and lots of rows

Some of the rows have bold cell entries.

I would like to run a macro that performs the following actions:

The macro is to look for rows with bold entries and insert 4 blank rows above all the rows that contain bold entries.

I have attached a sample file for your convenience.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Try this.  I think it will do what you want.
Sub AddRowsBeforeBoldEntries()
Dim i As Long, StartRow As Long
StartRow = 4
For i = Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row To StartRow Step -1
    With Cells(i, "B")
        If .Value <> "" And .Font.Bold = True Then .Resize(4).EntireRow.Insert
    End With
Next i
End Sub
