    Create a Macro To Add a New Row

    Hello,

    I would like to create a macro that can add a new row after the last cell. For example, the current row with data is A5, I want to add a new row after A5 is A6, another new row after A6 is A7 and so on. The script below keep adding a blank row right after row 5 instead of one-off. Would anyone be able to fix this? Thank you in advance for your help!

    With ActiveSheet
    LR = 5
    .Rows(LR).Insert Shift:=xlDown
    .Rows(LR - 1).Copy
    .Rows(LR).PasteSpecial xlFormats
    End With
    Application.CutCopyMode = 0
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

    Please note that, to comply with forum rules, you should use Code Tags around your code. The Mods can, rightly, pick you up on this and give you an infraction if they are in the frame of mind to do so. When you get to more than 10 posts, that's normally a given as you are expected to know and comply with the rules.

    Anyway ..

    Replace:

    Strictly speaking, as it's the last row anyway, there's not much point *inserting* a row. You could, I think, leave out the .Insert line.

    I might have misunderstood ... I thought you were adding at the end.

    If it's in the middle of data, maybe:

    Re: Create a Macro To Add a New Row

    TMS,

    Your script is perfect if I know a place (Activecell) where i want to add new row. But if I accidently leave the active cell at wrong location, it will at a new row where I dont want to. In my case, I want to add a new row in 'Work Products' area after row 10. I want the macro to add a new row after row 10 is 11, another row after 11 is 12 and so on. My macro keep adding a new row right after row 10, because I declared 'LR = 10'. How can I fix this? I'm totally new to VBA.

    Please see attachment for details.

    Thanks!

    I forgot to mention the macro 'NewWorkProduct' is in Module 2 and this is where I want to add new row.

    What is the criteria that determines the location of the new row to be added?

    Re: Create a Macro To Add a New Row

    You could use Application.WorksheetFunction.Match to determine the row number of the section heading: "Review Issue Metrics" and go up a row from there and insert your new line.

    Just copy the previous row format such as colors, size, front to new row but clear the content in it. New row to be add must be after row 10 and continue with one-off.

    Hi Beginner,

    Here's a method I often use to find a column or row - you should get used to the Option Explicit, it will save you many headaches - so good luck!
