    Hi all,

    this came up in conversation recently and I thought I knew the answer but was proved wrong.

    when you insert a row (or column), it sometimes (but not always) copies the format from the preceeding row (or column).

    what are the criteria that determine this?

    I thought it was based upon something like if the preceeding 5ish rows were all the same format but it's not that!


    Just realised I don't know how to add a link to a previous post!!
    btw I used the macro in the posting 11-Aug-2004 "Insert Row Automation" which solves the above nicely (thanks Anne), but I'm still curious for the above criteria.
    btw the 'InserARow' macro needs a row test at the beginning to check that you aren't insering above row 1 'cos there aint a row 0 to copy down from!
