VBA Tip: Repeating Emp Names N number of times using 4 different loops

Hi All,
This is a requirement from one of our student and here we are posting the question along with solution (this can be achieved using 4 different loops). In Column “J” there are few employee names which need to be repeated for “n” (this “n” is in cell “O1”) number of times in column “L”. Check the below screenshot for understanding the requirement. 

Above requirement can be done using 4 different VBA loops. Here you go

Solving the above task using 1. For Next Loop 

Sub EmpName_Recurring1()
   Dim emp_loop As Integer
   Dim source_lr As Integer
   Dim destination_lr As Integer
   ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Range("L2:L10000").ClearContents
   source_lr = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Cells(Rows.Count, "J").End(xlUp).Row
   For emp_loop = 1 To source_lr
   destination_lr = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Cells(Rows.Count, "L").End(xlUp).Row + 1
   Range(Cells(destination_lr, "L"), Cells(destination_lr + Range("Repeat_Count").Value - 1, "L")).Value =          Cells(emp_loop + 1, "J").Value
   Next emp_loop
   MsgBox "Task completed using For Next loop"

End Sub

Solving the above task using 2. For Each Loop

Sub EmpName_Recurring2()
   Dim rng As Range
   Dim source_lr As Integer
   Dim destination_lr As Integer
   ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Range("L2:L10000").ClearContents
   source_lr = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Cells(Rows.Count, "J").End(xlUp).Row

For Each rng In Sheets("Task").Range("J2:J" & source_lr)
   destination_lr = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Cells(Rows.Count, "L").End(xlUp).Row + 1
   Range(Cells(destination_lr, "L"), Cells(destination_lr + Range("Repeat_Count").Value - 1, "L")).Value =          rng.Value
   Next rng
   MsgBox "Task completed using For Each loop"

End Sub

Solving the above task using 3. Do While Loop

Sub EmpName_Recurring3()
   Dim rng As Range
   Dim row_increment As Integer
   Dim destination_lr As Integer
   ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Range("L2:L10000").ClearContents
   Do While Cells(row_increment + 2, "J").Value <> ""
   destination_lr = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Cells(Rows.Count, "L").End(xlUp).Row + 1
   Range(Cells(destination_lr, "L"), Cells(destination_lr + Range("Repeat_Count").Value - 1, "L")).Value =          Cells(row_increment + 2, "J").Value
   row_increment = row_increment + 1
Loop
   MsgBox "Task completed using Do While loop"

End Sub

Solving the above task using 4. Do Until Loop

Sub EmpName_Recurring4()
   Dim rng As Range
   Dim row_increment As Integer
   Dim destination_lr As Integer
   ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Range("L2:L10000").ClearContents
Do Until Cells(row_increment + 2, "J").Value = ""
   destination_lr = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Task").Cells(Rows.Count, "L").End(xlUp).Row + 1
   Range(Cells(destination_lr, "L"), Cells(destination_lr + Range("Repeat_Count").Value - 1, "L")).Value =         Cells(row_increment + 2, "J").Value
   row_increment = row_increment + 1
Loop
   MsgBox "Task completed using Do Until loop"

End Sub
