Please trust me, this is a relatively simple question, but takes some explaining:
I want to insert multiple rows (anywhere from 60 to 900+) into a table that I routinely use off a template. Every time I open the template, I have all my appropriate column headings, and I paste data from another program into this Excel sheet. My desired outcome is that I am able to paste rows of varying numbers, while still maintaining the last rows (for sum totals of each column) on my template. (This would help automating the task)
For example, I start my column headings in row 6. A6, B6, C6, and D6 all ...exporting data

Use the file->export option and export as Loose QIF. The export file
