# How to change spacing between \cventry blocks?

I am using package moderncv to write my CV. I have several \cventry blocks. Now I would like to globally change the spacing between the end of block A and the following block B. Is that possible?

I found out that you can use \cventry[10em], however, it is not working in my case.

Here an MWE:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{banking}
\moderncvcolor{blue}
\usepackage[scale=0.7]{geometry}
\name{John}{Doe}
\title{Resume title}
\phone[mobile]{+1~(234)~567~890}

\renewcommand*{\cventry}[9][.25em]{%
\begin{tabular*}{\textwidth}{l@{\extracolsep{\fill}}r}%
{\bfseries #4} & {\bfseries #5} \\%
{\itshape #3\ifthenelse{\equal{#6}{}}{}{, #6}} & {\itshape #2}\\%
{#7} & \ifthenelse{\equal{#8}{}}{}{\\ {#8} & \\}%
\end{tabular*}%
}

\begin{document}
\makecvtitle
\section{Education}
\end{document}


You have to add \par\addvspace{#1}% like

.

.
\end{tabular*}%
}


In your definition, you left #1, hence 10em had no effect.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{banking}
\moderncvcolor{blue}
\usepackage[scale=0.7]{geometry}
\name{John}{Doe}
\title{Resume title}
\phone[mobile]{+1~(234)~567~890}

\renewcommand*{\cventry}[9][.25em]{%
\begin{tabular*}{\textwidth}{l@{\extracolsep{\fill}}r}%
{\bfseries #4} & {\bfseries #5} \\%
{\itshape #3\ifthenelse{\equal{#6}{}}{}{, #6}} & {\itshape #2}\\%
{#7} & \ifthenelse{\equal{#8}{}}{}{\\ {#8} & \\}%
\end{tabular*}%
