Insert Row & Copy Formula (Excel 97)
When I insert a new row into my spreadsheet, it does not copy the formulas from the cells below. Is there a way to have it copy the formulas and insert a new row at the same time?

You could create a macro for that, but you'd have to specify exactly in which columns the formulas should be copied.

Re: Insert Row & Copy Formula (Excel 97)
As Hans said, assuming you want to copy all the formulas and allow the references to retain their relative or absolute character:
Sub CopyInsertRow()
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Insert Shift:=xlDown
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Offset(1, 0).Copy ActiveCell.EntireRow
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub
No error handling for locked cells etc.John ... I float in liquid gardens

Re: Insert Row & Copy Formula (Excel 97)
Does this do what you want:
Public Sub InsertAndCopyFormulas()
Dim oCell As Range
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Insert
For Each oCell In ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).EntireRow.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas)
oCell.Copy Destination:=oCell.Offset(1, 0)
Next oCell
End SubLegare Coleman

I've actually never written a macro before so I don't really know what to do with the code that you wrote. <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>

Re: Insert Row & Copy Formula (Excel 97)
In addition to what Hans said, this particular macro expects the sheet where you want the row inserted to be the active sheet. The macro will insert a row above the row with the active cell and copy the formulas from the row with the active cell to the inserted row.

Re: Insert Row & Copy Formula (Excel 97)
Thanks for all the information and tutorial.
I have managed to create the macro. However I need to edit it a bit. I actually need it to insert a new row and only copy the formula of one cell (Column C). How do I do that?

The following 2 lines will insert a row where the active cell is, and copy the formula in column C:
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Insert
Range("C" & (ActiveCell.Row  1) & ":C" & ActiveCell.Row).FillDown
