    Auto inserting empty rows into a populated sheet

    Hi

    I am looking at importing a file that could have up to 1000 populated lines in it. there will be no empty rows in between the lines. I then need to ensure that there are 10 empty rows inserted in between every populated row. I was thinking of doing it manually and recording it on a macro.... However the issue will have with this is that everyday the number of rows will vary.

    is there anyway of auto inserting 10 empty rows in between populated ones?

    This little routine will add the rows on the activesheet. Add it to your existing macro or call it separately:
