I have a macro to create a table and then add a couple of blank lines below it.
How would I adjust the macro to ask how many times it should be repeated and then it repeated that many times?

Here is the macro:
Sub CreateTable()
'
' CreateTable Macro
'
'
    ActiveDocument.Tables.Add Range:=Selection.Range, NumRows:=8, NumColumns:= _
        4, DefaultTableBehavior:=wdWord9TableBehavior, AutoFitBehavior:= _
        wdAutoFitFixed
    With Selection.Tables(1)
        If .Style <> "Table Grid" Then
            .Style = "Table Grid"
        End If
        .ApplyStyleHeadingRows = True
        .ApplyStyleLastRow = False
        .ApplyStyleFirstColumn = True
        .ApplyStyleLastColumn = False
        .ApplyStyleRowBands = True
        .ApplyStyleColumnBands = False
    End With
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdLine
    Selection.MoveDown Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory
    Selection.TypeParagraph
    Selection.TypeParagraph
End Sub

Sub repeatN()
dim i as integer
For i = 1 to cint(inputbox "", "", "")
call CreateTable
next i
End Sub

I didn't test it - but input box will let you specify a prompt and title, and is a string.  The cInt (<string>)  part converts the string to an Integer.  It's not a very good solution but hope it helps.

Try:

Sub repeatN()
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To CInt(InputBox("", "", ""))
Call CreateTable
Next i
End Sub
