    Change Cell Strings in Column to Replace Specifically the Second Character

    Hello! I am somewhat experienced with excel macros and basic computer programming. In column A I have data that is labelled "A2 - NS", "A2 - 19", "A2 - 21", "B2 - NS", "B2 - 19", "B2 - 21", "C2 - NS"... Continuing down the column to "H2 - 21". I now want to copy all these rows and paste them below these rows, but with the new values being "A3 - NS," A3 - 19..... (note that I only want the 2 to become a 3 without changing the rest of the string... for EACH row)

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how to write a macro that can help me, but I imagine it is quite simple. Understanding how to write this macro will help me quickly make sheets for future data sets

    Thanks,
    Steve

    try this macro and see column A

    see comments under value for r at the beginning of the macro r can have any value which is mulltipled by 24 that is 24*5=120 or 24*6=144 or 24*7=168 etc

    this may be pedestrian macro but it works. experts may give more concise macro.
