However, it will not be easy to insert multiple blank rows or columns, and it may be harder to insert multiple rows or columns alternately. But the Insert Blank Rows & Column tool of Kutools for Excel can help you insert multiple rows or columns at specific interval quickly.

Hello to everyone! I have the following issue:I have the following data:Column A Column B1 12 33 54 115 13
I need a way to automatically get the values from column A and column B into another column(ie., C) which will look like following:
Column C112335411513P.S. Every value from column A is followed by the value from column B. Each value is located on the same row!

Hi, I've found the "distinguish differences" feature doesn't always work when the differences come one cell after another e.g.

A
B
C
D
D
D
E
E
E
F
G
H
H
H

It won't spot the differences in A B C and G in the example above. Lines will be inserted after D and E only.
