Copy first row of specific worksheet and inserting that row into all other worksheets at the very top using VBA

Dear Experts:

I would like to run a macro that completes the following tasks:

Copy the first row of worksheet named 'DataSource' and ...
insert that row into all other worksheets of the active workbook, placing it at the very top of the respective worksheets without overwriting the existing first row but pushing that row one row below.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

You can use the following code ...

Sub copyrows()
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    Dim ws As Worksheet, ws1 As Worksheet

    Set ws1 = Sheets("Datasource")
    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        If ws.Name <> ws1.Name Then
            ws.Rows(1).Insert Shift:=xlDown
            Application.CutCopyMode = False
        End If

    Next ws
End Sub

Open in new window
