Insert Number of Excel rows based on a column

Insert Number of Excel rows based on a column

(OP)
Hi all,

I have an excel sheet that looks like the following:-

Acacia Avenue
2
Beech Street
6
High Street
10

What I want to be able to do is create a worksheet that creates 2 rows for Acacia Avenue, 6 rows for Beech Street, and 10 for High Street

Is this easy to do? If so how!?!?

Thanks in advance

David.

RE: Insert Number of Excel rows based on a column

Starting point:

Sheet1
  A
Acacia Avenue
2
Beech Street
6
High Street
10
 
Code in Excel:

CODE

Option Explicit

Sub Macro1()

Dim intRow As Integer
Dim strStreet As String
Dim intNo As Integer

intRow = 1

Do While Sheet1.Range("A" & intRow).Value <> ""

    If IsNumeric(Sheet1.Range("A" & intRow).Value) Then
        Call PlaceInfo(strStreet, Sheet1.Range("A" & intRow).Value)
    Else
        strStreet = Sheet1.Range("A" & intRow).Value
    End If

    intRow = intRow + 1
Loop

End Sub

Private Sub PlaceInfo(ByRef strS As String, ByRef intN As Integer)
Dim i As Integer
Static intR As Integer
If intR = 0 Then intR = 1

For i = 1 To intN
    Sheet2.Range("A" & intR).Value = strS
    intR = intR + 1
Next i

End Sub 

Result:

Sheet2
   A
Acacia Avenue
