Hey all, new member here.

I have a spread sheet I automatically import data into and sort by
several key columns ( via macro). What I would like to do next is
evaluate one of the columns and automatically insert a row when the
data is different than the cell above it. For example col A is
school grade (ie.. 6th grade, 7th grade) col B is students name, col
C is test score.
First I sort by school grade then by score. I would like to automatically
insert an empty row between the grades to make the groupings stand
out better. Absolute number of rows could vary with every import
instance.

Thanks in advance,

Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Thom, Welcome to the Board try this sub by Barrie Davidson,I think it will do what you need

Sub Insert_row()
' Written by Barrie Davidson
Dim Number_of_rows As Long
Dim Rowinsert As Integer
Number_of_rows = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
Ans = InputBox("How many rows do you want to insert ?", "Rows", 1)
If IsNumeric(Ans) Then
Rowinsert = CInt(Ans)
Else
MsgBox "Invalid number entered", vbCritical, "Error"
Exit Sub
End If
Range("A2").Select
Do Until Selection.Row = Number_of_rows + 1
If Selection.Value <> Selection.Offset(-1, 0).Value Then
Selection.EntireRow.Resize(Rowinsert).Insert
Number_of_rows = Number_of_rows + Rowinsert
Selection.Offset(Rowinsert + 1, 0).Select
Else
Selection.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
Loop
End Sub
