Would someone be able to provide me with some VBA code that will insert a row and copy the cells above. I would like the code to ask at what position the user wants to insert the row. i.e. 'Enter the row No where new row is to be inserted'

Thank you

Something like the following should do it:

Sub Macro1()
    theRow = InputBox("Enter Row Number to insert")

    Rows(theRow - 1 & ":" & theRow - 1).Copy
    Rows(theRow & ":" & theRow).Insert Shift:=xlDown, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

Open in new window

Would you be able to add one more bit of code for me please.

When the Row is inserted, Go To the Cell in column 'B' and clear contents from that cell.

To clarify, when the row is inserted and details are copied down from the row above, I need the contents in B?  [only] to be cleared.

Many thanks

Perfect Thanks.

I have also posted this......

I am using the below code which contains a password. Is there any code that would prompt a password change every 30 days?

Sub Approval()
    resp = InputBox("Enter Password")
    Select Case resp
    Case "silver1":
   
    Insert
   
        Case Else: MsgBox "Invalid Password"
    End Select
   
End Sub

would you be able to look at it?

Regards

Would you be able to assist me with this.

I keep getting

Prevent "to prevent possible loss of data, excel cannot shift nonblank cells off the worksheet. Select another location in which to insert new cells or delete data from the end of your worksheet."

I am using 2010. When I was using 2003 this never happened.

If I select End/Down Delete and then save the workbook it lets me insert the row.

As I am using your code this is very annoying.

Is there a way to stop this?

Thanks

Would you be able to post a copy of the workbook, I can then see what the issues may be.

As for the password Q will happily take a look.
