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

Try

Sub insertheaders()
    Dim pth As String, fnam As String, wb As Workbook
    pth = "c:\temp\"
    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", ",")
        wb.Close True

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
