Hello Experts, I have a series of accounts that I would like separated in two groups. As you can see in the code section, if the account number ends in either 900, 950 or 999 then I would like to insert a couple of empty rows above 900 to create separation. The problem is not all the account series will have these 3 numbers, some will only have 900 or 950 or 999 or  2 of the 3 numbers. So if the account series has accounts 950 and 999, I would like to add the empty rows above 950. If the account series only has account 999,  then i would like to add the empty rows above 999.

Hi, this VBA code will insert a blank row before the 900-series accounts:
Option Explicit
Sub Split_900_series()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim cl As Object
    
    Set rng = Range("A1", Range("A1").End(xlDown))
    For Each cl In rng
        If Mid(cl.Value, Len(cl.Value) - 2, 1) = "9" Then
            cl.EntireRow.Insert
            Exit Sub
        End If
    Next cl
End Sub

Open in new window


The code presumes that there is a continuguous set of accounts (i.e., no empty cells/rows in the data) and that they are in column A.

An example workbook is attached.  To test, press [Alt]+[F8] then select "Split_900_Series" from the list.

hi Glenn, thanks for your quick response. the macro worked great but how can i get this macro to work if i had another series of accounts that follows the first one? and those accounts contained 900 accounts.

The logic here is different.  Do you want a blank row before AND AFTER the 900-series accounts like so?

Sorry for the delay.  Okay, here's the modified code and updated workbook.  A different logic was needed to process this.
Option Explicit
Sub Split_Accts()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim cl As Object
    Dim strAcct As String
    Dim bool900Series As Boolean
    
    'First pass:  Split by accounts
    Set rng = Range("A1", Range("A" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(-1, 0))
    For Each cl In rng
        If cl.Value = "" Then
            strAcct = Left(cl.Offset(1, 0).Value, Len(cl.Offset(1, 0).Value) - 3)
        Else
            strAcct = Left(cl.Value, Len(cl.Value) - 3)
        End If
        If strAcct <> Left(cl.Offset(1, 0).Value, Len(cl.Offset(1, 0).Value) - 3) Then
            cl.Offset(1, 0).EntireRow.Insert
        End If
    Next cl
    
    'Second pass: Split out 900 series
    Set rng = Range("A1", Range("A" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(-1, 0))
    For Each cl In rng
        If cl.Value <> "" And bool900Series = False Then
            If Mid(cl.Value, Len(cl.Value) - 2, 1) = "9" Then
                cl.EntireRow.Insert
                bool900Series = True
            Else
                bool900Series = False
            End If
        Else
            If cl.Value = "" Then bool900Series = False
        End If
    Next cl
End Sub
