How to add page break as query grows or shrinks (#2)

I am using this macro:

Sub InsertHorizontalPageBreaks()
    Dim RowNbr As Long, ws As Worksheet
   
    Set ws = ActiveSheet
    ws.ResetAllPageBreaks
   
    For RowNbr = 1 To ws.UsedRange.Rows.Count
        If Left(ws.Cells(RowNbr, 1), 5) = "Race:" Then
            ws.Rows(RowNbr).PageBreak = xlPageBreakManual
        End If
    Next RowNbr
End Sub

It works 90% of the way. Say I have racers for race 1 on rows 2-5. On row 6, i have the next race # title. Then on row 7-10 in have racers for race 2. If I add racers to race 1, the page break stays above row 6, it does't move down to row 7. So that means all but one racer will be on one page, the last racer is going onto the top of the page with race 2, then below are the racers for race 2. How do i make it so the page brake follows right above the race #, as i add/delete racers?

Hi,

why not

Cleaning the other pagebreak at same time yout the new ones?

Sub InsertHorizontalPageBreaks()
    Dim RowNbr As Long, ws As Worksheet
    
    Set ws = ActiveSheet
    ws.ResetAllPageBreaks
    
    For RowNbr = 1 To ws.UsedRange.Rows.Count
        If Left(ws.Cells(RowNbr, 1), 5) = "Race:" Then
            ws.Rows(RowNbr).PageBreak = xlPageBreakManual
        Else
            ws.Rows(RowNbr).PageBreak = xlPageBreakNone
        End If
    Next RowNbr
End Sub

Open in new window

Two questions:
1. I ran this and it worked, but i discovered when i have things added/deleted from my data, making the number of rows on the query go up and down, the page break isn't following my data up and down. Every time i refresh the query, do i have to run the marco? If so thats a pain!
2. I saved my spreadsheet, then when i went back into the macro, i got an error:
"Run-time error '1004': Unable to set the PageBreak property of the Range class.

I copied your macro exactly as is.

Any ideas on these two items?
