inserting rows conditionally

Posted by doug on October 08, 2000 11:19 AM

I have data (date in col1 yes or no in col2) exported from another application; I need to insert rows between each record equal to the number of days between the date in one record and the date in the next record; the dates range back to 1996 and could have any number of days between each record; then I need to fill the inserted rows by duplicating the row just before the inserted rows

This code does what you asked for (assuming the date format of your imported data increments by 1 per day as Excel does)......

Dim Value1 As Long, Value2 As Long

Sub InsertRowsConditionally()
Value1 = ActiveCell.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then Exit Do
Value2 = ActiveCell.Value
If Value2 - Value1 > 1 Then
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(Value2 - Value1 - 2)).EntireRow.Insert
Range(ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0), ActiveCell.Offset(Value2 - Value1 - 2, 1)).FillDown
ActiveCell.Offset(Value2 - Value1 - 1).Select
End If
End Sub

.....But if you meant to have the dates increase by 1 day on each line then it will need to be modified to include a 'DataSeries Step:=1' the increment the date.
