Word 2010: (Loop) How to add new row to table based on cell values matches


I'm trying to loop through a table in word and add a new row between two non matching cells (cells 1 of row x & cells 1 of row x+1) as the non matching instances are found.

I know the below is crude (and doesn't work:0)), but if you could help that'd be great

Dim x As Long
Dim TableY As Table
x = 1
Set TableY = Selection.Tables(1).Cell(x, 1)
Do Until TableY.Cell(x, 1) <> TableY.Cell(x + 1, 1)
        Selection.InsertRowsAbove 1
        x = x + 1

pls try

Sub Macro1()

Set TableY = Selection.Tables(1)

For Idx = TableY.Rows.Count To 2 Step -1
    If TableY.Cell(Idx, 1).Range.Text <> TableY.Cell(Idx - 1, 1).Range.Text Then
        TableY.Cell(Idx, 1).Select
    End If

End Sub
