Default 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.

Default 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.

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.

Default 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 double-click 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 DataSort "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. Delete Column H

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.

This gives you the numbers 1 to 61 in the column next to your data in Column
B.

While these 61 numbers are *still* selected, right click in the selection
and choose "Copy".
Right click in the empty A62 and choose "Paste".

NOW, select A1 to B122, and from the Menu Bar:
<Data <Sort
Sort by Column A, ascending, <OK.

And you're done.

Of course, if your data extends beyond Column B, say to Column J, then
select A1 to J122 before completing the sort.
