Hi there,

Would appreciate if somebody could help adding a new function to the below VBA.
What I am trying to achieve is to add a new blank row after every subtotal.

I have found a goos thread that has the answer, but the thing that I do not know where i should place it.

Insert a blank row after each subtotal line - Microsoft Community

Thanks in advance for your kindness!

Sub Copy_To_Worksheets()
'Note: This macro use the function LastRow
Dim My_Range As Range
Dim FieldNum As Long
Dim CalcMode As Long
Dim ViewMode As Long
Dim ws2 As Worksheet

Dim cell As Range
Dim CCount As Long
Dim WSNew As Worksheet
Dim ErrNum As Long

'Set filter range on ActiveSheet: A1 is the top left cell of your filter range
'and the header of the first column, D is the last column in the filter range.
'You can also add the sheet name to the code like this :
'Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:D" & LastRow(Worksheets("Sheet1")))
'No need that the sheet is active then when you run the macro when you use this.
Set My_Range = Range("A1:N" & LastRow(ActiveSheet))

My_Range.Parent.ProtectContents = True Then

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Hi there,

have sorted it out.
I used the macro from the link im my previous post and changed it a little bit.

Sub AddBlankRows()
Dim iRow As Integer, iCol As Integer
Dim oRng As Range

Set oRng = Range("D1")

iRow = oRng.Row
iCol = oRng.Column

If Cells(iRow + 1, iCol) <> Cells(iRow, iCol) Then
Cells(iRow + 1, iCol).EntireRow.Insert shift:=xlDown
iRow = iRow + 2
iRow = iRow + 1
End If
Loop While Not Cells(iRow, iCol).Text = ""
End Sub
