Hi,

I have a spreadsheet with a minimum of 259 rows.

I would like to start from row 6, copy that row and all it contents, and insert it 6 times.

I would end up with a total of 7 rows with the same data.

Then go to the next row and insert 6 rows again, after each row all the way down till the last row with data.

Column A has data in each row from row 6.

I start with row 6, 7, 8 9 etc
after inserting the 6 rows, row 7 would start at 12 so on.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance.
