Bedankt voor je uitleg. Ik heb de formule toegepast maar bekom dat ik maar 1 lijn kan toevoegen. Daarna laat de knop het niet meer toe en moet ik eerst mijn toegevoegde rij verwijderen. Is er een manier om dit aan te passen?

Hi Big Ant,

Here's the modified code to delete a specified row when the Command Button is clicked:


Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'Updated by Extendoffice 20230817
    Dim rowNum As Integer
    On Error Resume Next
    rowNum = Application.InputBox(Prompt:="Enter Row Number which you want to delete:", _
                                    Title:="Kutools for excel", Type:=1)
    If rowNum <> 0 Then
        Rows(rowNum).Delete Shift:=xlUp
    End If
End Sub

Criei uma linha e nomeei como spotB,
Mudei a altura da linha para 0,01 para ocultá-la (apenas por estética).
Criei um botão:
Application.Goto Reference:="spotB"
Selection.EntireRow.Insert

Problema resolvido.

Obrigado pelos códigos a Mah e crystal, mas eu tinha 8 títulos para separar, cada um inserindo linhas quando necessário ao usuário, e não queria nenhuma pergunta sobre quantidade de linhas, os usuários não leem perguntas e clicam logo em OK, depois reclamam...

Caros colegas, após pesquisar (bastante) na net não consegui encontrar um atalho, comando, código, nada, nada, que eu possa usar para inserir em uma macro APENAS uma forma de inserir uma linha ABAIXO da célula ativa. Isto porquê se eu gravar o endereço da célula, ele não muda, fica sempre na mesma célula e as seguintes não vão ficar corretamente abaixo, e se eu usar um endereço de célula fixo, a linha tem que ser inserida acima, mas não formata da forma desejada, que seria o formato das linhas de cima.

Acho que o código existe, só não encontro, já tentei várias formas, selecionando um fixo, subindo uma linha e pedindo para inserir após, mas as seguintes não funcionam de acordo.

Alguém poderia me ajudar?

Hi

I used the code but wanted to add rows with formulas, therefore I added the last line to be able to add the rows with formulas.
However, in my excel file and in column "F" I have a text which can be entered manually and would be different in different cases. Therefore, I would like to add rows below the reference row with keeping the formulas and values in all cells except the cell from column "F" which I would like to be copied as blank!
Could you please help me with what should I add to the underneath code to be able to have the cells of column "F" blank whenever I add a row with this code?
thanks in advance!

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim xIntRrow As Integer
Dim rowNum As Integer
On Error Resume Next
rowNum = Application.InputBox(Prompt:="Enter Row Number where you want to add a row:", _
Title:="Kutools for excel", Type:=1)
xIntRrow = Application.InputBox(Prompt:="Type in the number of rows you want to insert", _
Title:="Kutools for excel", Type:=1)
Rows(rowNum + 1 & ":" & rowNum + 1).EntireRow.Resize(xIntRrow).Insert Shift:=xlShiftDown
Rows(rowNum).Resize(xIntRrow + 1).FillDown

End Sub

Hi Mah,
The following VBA code may do you a favor. Please give it a try. Thank you.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
'Updated by Extendoffice 20220707
    Dim rowNum As Integer
    Dim xRg1, xRg2 As Range
    
    On Error Resume Next
    
    rowNum = Application.InputBox(Prompt:="Enter Row Number where you want to add a row:", _
                                    Title:="Kutools for excel", Type:=1)
    
    Rows(rowNum & ":" & rowNum).Insert Shift:=xlDown
    Rows((rowNum - 1) & ":" & (rowNum - 1)).Copy
    Rows(rowNum & ":" & rowNum).Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteAll, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
        False, Transpose:=False
    Range("F" & rowNum).Value = ""
End Sub

Sub AddNewRow()



Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="1234"



Dim mySheets

Dim i As Long



mySheets = Array("Sheet2")



For i = LBound(mySheets) To UBound(mySheets)

With Sheets(mySheets(i))

.Range("B10").EntireRow.Insert Shift:=xlDown

.Range("B10:H10").Borders.Weight = xlThin

End With

Next i



ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="1234"



End Sub

I don't know if this will work for you. It worked quite well for me. I even left unprotected cells that you can input data and the formulas are still active. Took me a whole day to figure it out. replace "1234" with whatever password you feel like, "Sheet2" with the Sheet you are working with and input the range you want.
The code first unprotects the worksheet, adds row and protects the worksheet.
