Hi everyone,

been a while -- hope everyone is great even thought it IS MONDAY!

I am trying to enter a blank row everytime the 2ND character of a field changes...

sample cells (ALWAYS COLUMN B)(last row needs to be calculated as it changes daily):

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 23pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=31><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 23pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 992" width=31><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; WIDTH: 23pt; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19 width=31>2T</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>2W</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>3D</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>3L</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>4H</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>4N</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>4N</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>4N</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>6C</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 14.25pt" height=19><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; HEIGHT: 14.25pt; BORDER-TOP: windowtext; BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid" dir=ltr class=xl64 height=19>6C</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

was trying this:

Code:
 Dim chkConfirmRw, LastNameRow As Integer
 For chkConfirmRw = LastNameRow To 1 Step -1
'Compare the current cell to the one below it
'If they don't match, insert a row row below the current Row
     If Range("B" & chkConfirmRw) <> Range("B" & chkConfirmRw + 1) Then
        Range("B" & chkConfirmRw + 1).EntireRow.Insert Shift:=xlDown
     End If
'Decrement the counter and do it again
Next

but it does not work.

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN
Maybe this but it doesn't give quite the result that you posted

Code:
Sub test()
Dim LR As Long, i As Long
LR = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = LR To 2 Step -1
    With Range("B" & i)
        If Right(.Value, 1) <> Right(.Offset(-1).Value, 1) Then .EntireRow.Insert
    End With
Next i
End Sub

Try

Code:
Sub test()
Dim LR As Long, i As Long
LR = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = LR To 2 Step -1
    With Range("B" & i)
        If Left(.Value, 1) <> Left(.Offset(-1).Value, 1) Then .EntireRow.Insert
    End With
Next i
End Sub
