I have an excel 2010 workbook with a worksheet that pulls in data from an outside source (about 150 cost codes and descriptions).  On another worksheet in the same workbook I have data in the first two columns that was copied from the first sheet originally.  When a new query is run to update the first sheet, I would like to include code that would compare the two sheets row by row and update the second sheet by inserting rows if a new cost code is found.  

Please let me know if you need more information.
Thanks

A before and After sample is also helpful.
and record a macro that has the steps you would use to manually create the desired result as this gives a idea of what you are trying to achieve.,

OK, I attached a sample file and recorded a macro in module1.  The workbook is currently in a state that would result from running a new query where a row was added in the "Query Sheet" ws (row 12 in red).  The lists in columns A & B were previously identical to the lists in columns A & B in the "Related Data" ws.  I need code to run after the query to check for any changes in the "Query Sheet" and insert a corresponding row in the "Related Data" sheet.

Hope this helps clarify.

Hi is this what you want ? I added some more missing codes to make sure we cover boundaries. Make sure your macroes are enabled and run the button and let me know if this is what you want I am coloring the code we can change that.
