How to Insert Alternate Blank Rows in Excel Spreadsheet

Date:2019-8-26 Author:Cordelia

It’s not rare to insert a blank row between 2 existing rows as a new header while making specific spreadsheets like salary sheets. Instead of right-clicking one cell and choose to insert a new row manually, you can actually batch create new rows alternatively using AutoFill and Go To feature of Excel.

Open the worksheet you want to insert alternate blank rows. Create 2 assistant columns and enter “1”in D2 and “2” in E3.

    This is absolutely amazing. I had over 4400 rows and couldn’t imagine adding one row at a time. Thanks so much for your instruction. But note that control+G doesn’t exist on a mac keyboard so I used ‘Edit, Find, Go To’. I now have alternating blank rows.
