I'D.   total data
12.     5

18.     44

I would like to create 5 rows for I'd 12 with starting from 01.01.2016, 60 rows for I'd 14 with starting date from 01.01.2016, it should look like below
I'd.   date

If the original data was in columns A and B on the active sheet and started in row 2 this code will put the 'expanded' data in columns D and E.
``````Sub ExpandData()
Dim arrIn As Variant
Dim arrOut As Variant
Dim I As Long
Dim J As Long
Dim cnt As Long

arrIn = Range("A2", Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).Value

ReDim arrOut(1 To Application.Sum(Application.Index(arrIn, , 2)), 1 To 2)

cnt = 1

For I = LBound(arrIn) To UBound(arrIn)
For J = 1 To arrIn(I, 2)
arrOut(cnt, 1) = arrIn(I, 1)
arrOut(cnt, 2) = DateSerial(2016, 1, 1) + J - 1
cnt = cnt + 1
Next J
Next I

Range("D1:E1").Value = Array("ID", "Date")

With Range("D2").Resize(UBound(arrOut, 1), UBound(arrOut, 2))
.Value = arrOut
.EntireColumn.AutoFit
End With

End Sub
``````
