I know how to record macros and edit them somewhat, however that is the extent of my knowledge with regards to that sort of Excel work. On SHEET, I have 6 stores listed from D5:D10. In another data entry tab (SHEET4!B:B9), I have a list of the current stores. I need to make it so that as I add new stores to additional rows on SHEET4 (B10, B11, B12... etc), my rows on SHEET1 grow (D11, D12, etc).

I'm sure I can enter some code to make this happen, but since I'm not as familiar with that, I'd like to know if there is a way to do it using standard Excel formulas. It's fine if I need to use a macro to do it (after I add a new store into SHEET4, I activate the macro and it pops in the new row on SHEET1, but I'd rather not go the code route if I can avoid it (just so I can stay in my current wheelhouse of knowledge until I have time to really learn and understand that part. That is, unless someone can explain it so simply that I totally get it. Lol

I know for a fact that I had some roundabout way of doing it a few years back, but I simply cannot recall how I did it. I believe I had a formula counting the number of cells in the database table (SHEET4), and I then used that count to somehow make the the table in SHEET1 match that number of rows (including all of the formulas in the rest of the earlier SHEET1 rows.

Can you Excel-lent folks dial me in? Thanks so much for your help.
