I would like either vba code or a macro to split the attached spreadsheet as follows:

A1:V1 - Remain as titles
A2:V2 - Remain in row 2
Insert new row and move W2:AK2 to this row as follows
W2 would become F3, X2 would become G3 and so on

Carry on for the remaining 244 rows

Hi, andymacf.

Please see attached. Couple of points...
(1) I changed the contents of columns A and W for testing purposes.
(2) It's not the fastest code, but it's OK for a few hundred rows. Let me know if you are planning to run this against tens of thousands.

The code is...
Option Explicit

Sub Split_Rows()
Dim i As Long
Dim xLast_Row As Long

ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1").Activate

xLast_Row = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Cells(1, 1).Row + ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count - 1
If xLast_Row < 2 Then
    MsgBox ("No data found - run cancelled.")
    Exit Sub
End If

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
    For i = xLast_Row To 2 Step -1
    
        Rows(i + 1).Insert Shift:=xlShiftDown
    
        Range("W" & i & ":AK" & i).Cut Destination:=Range("F" & i + 1 & ":T" & i + 1)
    
    Next
    
Columns("W:AK").Delete Shift:=xlToLeft

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

MsgBox "Run complete - " & xLast_Row - 1 & " rows processed."

End Sub

Open in new window

Fantastic job, this file will only ever be run against the 245 rows so it is a perfect fit.
Thanks Brian, much appreciated.
