Adding an extra row after every existing row
I have an excel worksheet with about 61 rows. Now i have to add another row
with the same text after EACH existing row  between row A and B, row B and C etc. Is there any quick way to insert all these rows or do I simply have to manually insert row by row.

Adding an extra row after every existing row
If just for visual purposes, simply select all rows, which are the 1,2,3,4,5 and
not the columns which are A,B,C,D and double their height. If you truly need a row inserted, in a helper column enter numbers 1 to 61. Copy that range and paste to row 62. Sort on that column ascending to get your blank rows. Gord Dibben MS Excel MVP On Sun, 13 Apr 2008 07:10:00 0700, Josh W > wrote: >I have an excel worksheet with about 61 rows.

Sorry Gord, I know you are trying to help but I really couldn't follow you. I
tried to understand and do what you suggested several ways but all that happens is that the existing data remain exactly as before and I only got an extra 61 rows AFTER the existing rows and not each one in between.

Adding an extra row after every existing row
Let's go over it again.
1. In row 1 of an an adjacent blank column....say H1... enter 1. 2. In H2 enter a 2. 3. Select both those cells and doubleclick fill handle of H2 to copy down to H61. 4. Select H1:H61 and Copy. 5. Select H62 and Paste. 6. Select all your used columns including H and Data>Sort> "My data range has no header row" 7. Sort Ascending on column H to get 1 1 blank 2 2 blank 3 3 blank 8.

Adding an extra row after every existing row
Just elaborating on Gord's explanation:
Say existing data in A1 to A61. Insert a *new* (helper) column A by right clicking in the existing Column A header and choosing "Insert". In the NEW Column A, enter 1 in A1, and 2 in A2. Select A1 and A2. In the lower right corner of this 2 cell selection you'll see a small black square, called the "fill" handle. Hover the cursor over this square until it (the cursor) changes from a fat white cross to a skinny black cross. Then *double* click. This will *automatically* fill the series down Column A, as far as there is data in Column B. This gives you the numbers 1 to 61 in the column next to your data in Column B.
