    In my work environment we are writing test cases and for the test steps we use a word table. Its the same 4 columns so we can load them into the Quality Center environment. One issue we had was our review tool doesn't support word but does text documents. The format of the table was kind of messy when we saved as a text document in the sense it would lump all the stuff together with no clean breaks. As a solution people making every other row and column blank so there would be a break in the text format. Once the review was complete you would have to then go back into that word doc and delete all the blank rows and columns to load into Quality Center. Not hard but time consuming with the number of test we would deal with. I wrote a quick macro that would delete the header in the table plus all the blank rows and columns.

    Now what we have is we are re using these test and adding to them. Currently we are pulling them out of quality center, adding the blank rows and columns back in, adding our updates, sending back out for review, deleting the blank rows and columns (macro does this), load back into Quality Center.

    There may be a better way to go about this but what I am after is this. A macro that will insert a blank row and column every other row and column. I have been off and on playing with this for a few days but really have gotten no where with it. Posted on a few non technical forum and they suggested posting on this site for some help. I tried searching and didn't come up with anything like my scenario so hopefully not asking something previously asked
