Good Day Experts,

I have a rather large excel spreadsheet in which column A has sorted numbers in with a single number 4, 10, 20 or more numbers that may be the same.  I would like if possible to have a macro that I would run that would insert one or two rows in the entire row to separate the different number or groups of like numbers throughout the column.

Thanks for your assistance.

I have attached a spreadsheet for your review.

For now, my code looks like this:

Sub test()

'get row count
RowCount = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

i = 1
Do While i < RowCount
    'get row and next row
    If Cells(i, 1).Value <> Cells(i + 1, 1).Value Then
		'insert row
        Cells(i + 1, 1).Select
        ActiveCell.EntireRow.Select
        Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
        'adjust i because of added row
		i = i + 1
    End If
    
    i = i + 1

Loop



End Sub

Because the third column is Yellow, I assume I have to check that. Therefore the code is only slightly different:

Sub test()

'get row count
RowCount = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

i = 1
Do While i < RowCount
    'get row and next row
    If Cells(i, 3).Value <> Cells(i + 1, 3).Value Then
        'insert row
        Cells(i + 1, 3).Select
        ActiveCell.EntireRow.Select
        Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
        'adjust i because of added row
        i = i + 1
    End If
    
    i = i + 1

Loop



End Sub

I tryed the coding you provided. It works but it inserts a row everyother number as oppose to grouping the like numbers then adding a row. I have attached the workbook for your use.  let me know

Okay! The coding worked down to a certain number of cells then stopped. I attached the worksheet and highlighted at the gray where the macro stopped.  Let me know
