Hi,

I've attached an example, but what I'm trying to do is insert (and copy if at all possible) rows to an Excel table based on a value in another column. my primary data is in columns A:K.  I've given an example of what I'd like the macro to produce in columns M:W.

Column K contains the number of rows to be inserted either directly before the row itself or directly after.  It shouldn't matter as long as it is consistent. If possible, I'd like the inserted rows to be copies of the row itself.

The best case scenario would be all of the above, plus column D being changed on the initial row and copies to the value of 1.00.  Basically I'm trying to expand a single row of 15 qty into 15 rows of 1 quantity.  Please let me know what macro would accomplish this.  

Thanks!

Hi,

I've tested the following code on your sample data and I believe it does what you've requested.
Be sure to test it on a copy of your workbook.
Also, there can't be any tables in the columns after column K, otherwise it will generate an error.


Sub insertRows()
    
    Dim objLi As ListObject
    Dim i As Long
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim rw As Long
    Dim nRws As Long
    
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
    Set objLi = ActiveSheet.ListObjects(1)
    With objLi
        For i = .ListRows.Count To 1 Step -1
            If .ListRows(i).Range(1, .ListColumns.Count) > 0 Then
                Set rng = .ListRows(i).Range
                Rows(rng.Row + 1 & ":" & rng.Row + .ListRows(i).Range(1, .ListColumns.Count)).Insert shift:=xlDown
                nRws = .ListRows(i).Range(1, .ListColumns.Count)
                rng.Cells(1, 4) = 1
                rng.Copy Destination:=rng.Offset(1).Resize(nRws)
            End If
        Next i
    End With
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

If you need any help where and how to use this code, just let me know.
