I'm using this line of code to add 12 empty rows at the top of a worksheet

Var_RawData_Worksheet.Rows("1:12").Insert shift:=xlShiftDown


I'd like to use a variable to control the number of rows but can't figure out the syntax, what I need is something like:

VARIABLE_NO = 12

Var_RawData_Worksheet.Rows("1: VARIABLE_NO").Insert shift:=xlShiftDown

Apologies for what is probably a very stupid question, my VBA is coming on but sometimes the basic stuff beats me.

Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

Where is the number of rows going to come from?

do you mean:

Code:
[COLOR=#333333]Var_RawData_Worksheet.Rows("1:" &  [/COLOR][I][B]VARIABLE_NO[/B]).Insert shift:=xlShiftDown[/I]

How about something like
Code:
VARIABLE_NO = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value
Var_RawData_Worksheet.Rows(1).Resize(VARIABLE_NO).Insert shift:=xlShiftDown
