Dear Experts:

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

I got hundreds of xlsm-files in C:\temp\

- I would like to insert a row at the very top of each workbook (each workbook contains just one worksheet named 'temp').

- This newly created first row has to have the following entries for A1, B1, C1, D1:
Item Number, Customer, Street, Items.

- The first row should be formatted to repeat with each page break (rows to repeat at top)

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

Regards, Andreas

    fnam = Dir(pth & "*.xls?")
    Do While fnam <> ""
        Set wb = Workbooks.Open(pth & fnam)
        wb.ActiveSheet.Range("A1").EntireRow.Insert
        wb.ActiveSheet.Range("A1:D1") = Split("Item Number, Customer, Street, Items", ",")

Dear ssagibh:

thank you very much for your great help. Works great although I needed to make a slight change on the variable declaration:

Dim wb As Variant

And I added
wb.ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintTitleRows = "$1:$1" for the header to be repeated on page breaks.

Anyhow, thank you very much for your great and swift support. I really appreciate it.

Regards, Andreas
