I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this...

Sub InsertBlankRows()
    Dim rw As Long
    For rw = Cells(Rows.Count, "L").End(xlUp).Row To 2 Step -1
        If Cells(rw, "L").Value <> Cells(rw + 1, "L").Value Then
            Rows(rw + 1).Insert
        End If
    Next    
End Sub

You could have also used the Subtotal wizard.

This inserts a row (and subtotal formula) after a change in a designated column. It also adds grouping icons to the left margin so that you can expand/collapse the groups.

If you don't need the subtotals, collapse to level 1 and delete them.
