    Lovely! Thank you. I wonder if anyone could give a hint on how I would incorporate a new column of information into the table (column E) that is a number of incrementing value for each copied row, 1, 2, 3, 4 etc... and then when it gets to the next item to be duplicated X times, it will start numbering again from 1 and increasing by 1 each time.

    Is there a way to update the module to only duplicate new data? I'm working on an ongoing document and do not want the code to duplicate data that has been previously duplicated.
