  1. Hi Tim, thank you for your valuable response. You can declare the variables this way:

    Dim File_Dialog as FileDialog
    Set File_Dialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)

    Dim Sheet_Names(2) as Variant

    Dim New_File(2) as Variant

    But declaring variables beforehand is not mandatory in VBA. You can directly assign values to them as mentioned in the given codes.

  2. Hi Nico,
    Thanks for your response. You can use the FILTER function of Excel for your problem. Check this article for details https://www.exceldemy.com/excel-filter-multiple-criteria/.

  3. Hi Veronika, if your problem isn’t solved yet, you can send the file to my mail or can send an image of your file. I’ll try.

  4. Hi Arjun, the codes are absolutely flawless and there is no reason for them to not work properly. Did you insert the inputs correctly?

  5. Hi Luis,
    Thank you for your response. Hope this comes in handy for more people like you.

  6. Hello Sam,
    Thank you Sam for your response. It’s working fine now. Thank you again.

  7. Hi Mohammed, Thanks for your response. Insert the name of the text and the color code in the 2nd and 3rd lines of the codes directly.

  8. Hi Man, Thanks in advance. Can you please tell me where exactly the bug is? I have run the code in every way possible and there evolves no error. I think you couldn’t enter the inputs properly. Please go through the article again and then try. If it still doesn’t work, please tell me what exactly the error is.

  9. Hi Dennis,

    Thanks for your response. To skip the table name, first, remove the 4th line of the code, that is, Table_Name = InputBox(“Enter the Name of the Table: “).

    Then enter the name of the table within the 6th line of the code. For example, if the name of your table is “Table1”, then the line should be: Set tbl = ws.ListObjects(“Table1”).

    So the complete code will be:

    Sub Add_Empty_Row()

    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Set ws = ActiveSheet

    Dim tbl As ListObject
    Set tbl = ws.ListObjects(“Table1”)


    End Sub

  10. I think the problem lies in the apostrophes. Use this code instead of yours. It works fine for me.

    Sub InsertRowsfromUserInput()
    Dim iRow As Long
    Dim iCount As Long
    Dim i As Long
    iCount = InputBox(Prompt:=”How Many Rows to Insert?”)
    iRow = InputBox _
    (Prompt:=”Where to Insert New Rows? (Enter the Row Number)”)
    For i = 1 To iCount
    Next i
    End Sub

    If it still doesn’t work, after pasting the code in the VBA editor, change the apostrophes of the 5th and 7th lines manually. Hope it will work then.

  11. Thank you Ana. It’s difficult to give any suggestions without having a glance at the workbook. Would you please kindly share your workbook with me?
