Select every N-th row and replace column values

Occasional Contributor

Hi, 

 

I'm new to VBA and macro so I need help with a script/code that can select every 18th-21th row and replace column "I" with the following values: 

Paranøtter
Pekannøtter
Pistasjnøtter
Valnøtter

and replace column "L"-"O" to blank (should be no values). 

This should be a loop.

 

I have attached a part of my dataset and highlighted the rows and columns I want to change.

 

This is a bit urgent so I'm really trying to automate this process. Thanks for any help you can provide!

Sub EditRows()
    Dim r As Long
    Dim m As Long
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    m = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    For r = 19 To m Step 21
        Range("I" & r).Value = "Paranøtter"
        Range("I" & r + 1).Value = "Pekannøtter"
        Range("I" & r + 2).Value = "Pistasjnøtter"
        Range("I" & r + 3).Value = "Valnøtter"
        Range("L" & r).Resize(4, 4).ClearContents
    Next r
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Thanks a lot! That saved me so much time!

 

Just one last thing. Do you know a code for how to move every 5th row to the 21th row? I want to move the row with "Peanøtter" to the last row of each unique product id (see column A). I want all the nuts (nøtter) to be in the same order.

Sub MovePeanøtter()
    Dim r As Long
    Dim m As Long
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    m = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    For r = 6 To m Step 21
        Range("A" & r).EntireRow.Cut
        Range("A" & r + 17).EntireRow.Insert
    Next r
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
thanks a lot!
