SPACE CREATION MACRO

Reference the attached Excell file (spacingex.xlsx)

Would like to have a macro that creates 4 spaces after each DIFFERENT description listed.

Sheet 1 of the attached file has 7 different descriptions.
Other sheets that this macro can be applied will have anywhere from 2 to 15 different descriptions listed.

Sheet 1 of the attached file has the first description starting at cell location B5
Other sheets that this macro can be applied can have any starting point.

The cursor will be manually placed at the starting point, before the macro is run.

Sheet2 of the attached file shows the results of placing the cursor at B and then running the macro

MY system is Windows 8 and am running Excell 2013

Try this code..this will do what you are looking for...

Sub addspace()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    Dim lrow As Long, srow As Long
    Dim x As Long
    srow = 6    '<--- Your Starting Point

    Do Until srow > Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row

        If Cells(srow - 1, "b").Value = Cells(srow, "b").Value Then
            srow = srow + 1
        Else
           For x = 0 To 3
            Rows(srow + x).Insert
         Next x
            srow = srow + 5
        End If
    Loop

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Open in new window
