Excel/insert an additional row if A3>B2


Hi Jan,

How do I do a macro / VBA to insert an additional row if A3>B2?

How do I add this into my excel? Do I go to Macros > View Macros > Create a new Macro > ? Is this too considered VBA ?

Hi Lee,

Yes, a macro is written in VBA.

You open the VBA editor (Alt+F11).
Then insert a module into the workbook where you want to store the macro.
Then you enter something like:

Sub AddaRowOrNot()
   If Range("A3").Value > Range("B2").Value Then
       'Inserts a row above row 3
   End If
End Sub
