Can an expert provide the code that will allow the user to insert one or many blank rows.

I am using the below code that works fine for a single row so maybe this code could be amended.

The user needs to say where they want to add the row and how many rows to insert.

theRow = InputBox("Enter Row Number where new row is to be inserted ")

    Rows(theRow - 1 & ":" & theRow - 1).Copy
    Rows(theRow & ":" & theRow).Insert Shift:=xlDown, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Cells(theRow, 2).ClearContents
    Cells(theRow, 2).Select

Many thanks
