My spreadsheet looks like this (column A):

Apple
Apple
Apple
Apple
Orange
Orange
Orange
Pear
Pear
Pear
Banana
Banana
Banana

I need to be able to insert a blank row whenever the value in column A changes, but I cannot figure out how to do it. I am a complete rookie when it comes to Excel macros and I don't know a thing about VBA.

Please help!

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Hi
try
Code:
Sub test()
Dim i As Long
i = 1
Do While Cells(i, 1) <> ""
    If Cells(i + 1, 1) <> "" And Cells(i, 1) <> Cells(i + 1, 1) Then
        Rows(i + 1).Insert
        i = i + 1
    End If
    i = i + 1
Loop
End Sub
