    Dim I As Long
    On Error Resume Next
LInput:
    I = Application.InputBox("Enter number of rows required.", "Kutools for Excel", 1, , , , , 1)
    If I < 1 Then
        MsgBox "Error, please retype", vbInformation, "Kutools for Excel"
        GoTo LInput
    End If
    Cells(ActiveCell.Row, 1).Resize(Int(I), 3).Insert xlDown
