Number Range Field in Excel Expanded into identical rows for the length of the number Range

I have been doing this manually on a spreadsheet at my supervisors orders, but i was thinking this could possibly be done in a macro. Unfortunately I could not come close to figuring it out. In the first sheet in the workbook in ROW H there is a number range which represents the range of Strands that have the information in the remaining fields. What I was tasked to do is duplicate the rows based on the amounts in the number range. What my supervisor wants to see is on the second Sheet in the Workbook. Each Row is duplicated based on the amount of numbers in the range in column H. I hope I was able to explain it sufficiently.

You have a protected worksheet and a protected workbook structure. As a result, a macro won't be able to modify your worksheet--unless you post a password.

Assuming that you unprotect your worksheet, and that the number after the dash in column H represents the number of row copies, here is a macro to do the duplication. The macro assumes that a number without a dash in column H also represents the number of row copies you want.

As written, the code converts the active worksheet (Starting point) into one that resembles Results in the attached workbook.
Sub RowDuper()
Dim rg As Range
Dim s As String
Dim i As Long, ii As Long, n As Long, nn As Long
Dim v As Variant
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set rg = Range("A1").CurrentRegion
n = rg.Rows.Count
For i = n To 2 Step -1
    s = rg.Cells(i, "H").Value
    If s <> "" Then
        nn = Split(s & "-" & s, "-")(1)
        If nn > 1 Then
            rg.Rows(i + 1).Resize(nn - 1, 1).EntireRow.Insert
            For ii = 2 To nn
                rg.Rows(i + ii - 1).Value = rg.Rows(i).Value
            Next
        End If
    End If
Next
End Sub

Hi,

pls try
Sub RowDuplicates()
Dim rg As Range
Dim s As String
Dim BgnN, EndN
Dim i As Long, n As Long, nn As Long
Dim v As Variant
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set rg = Range("A1").CurrentRegion
n = rg.Rows.Count
For i = n To 2 Step -1
    s = rg.Cells(i, "H").Value
    If s Like "*-*" Then
        BgnN = Split(s, "-")(0)
        EndN = Split(s, "-")(1)
        nn = EndN - BgnN
        rg.Rows(i + 1).Resize(nn, 1).EntireRow.Insert
        rg.Rows(i + 1).Resize(nn).Value = rg.Rows(i).Value
    End If
Next
End Sub

Thank you! Rgonzo's worked exactly the way I wanted! I almost had byundt's solution working after tweaking it a bit.
