fill data series automatically in Excel
Q113. In Excel, how can I fill a series of data automatically?
For example, I assign product codes as and when new products are added. The product codes are increments of 1 starting from 17000. Is there an alternative to typing in Product code in every field manually?
To do it in Excel, here is the answer:
a) Manually enter the first 2 values so that Excel can recognize the increment. Then click and drag bottom right corner (where there is a plus mark) to the rest of the column.
b) Excel auto fills the entire column.
c) This method could be used to auto fill numbers, dates, months etc.,
