Graeme George Stathopoulosabout 1 year ago#20504This comment was minimized by the moderator on the siteOn a separate sheet to use for your math...Break the Alphanumeric into separate columns then, use the number columns for the incremental, then concatenate the results back, then copy the concatenated results and paste [as values] into the VBA script..

Column A text is "TEI-000"Column B text is "1"Column C text is ".jpg"

Use the formula "INT Row..." to do double number row lines for the number column.Columns "A" & "C" are unchanged so copy to last row of data.

Select all of the concatenated results, Copy, paste as values into another column to save your magic formula as a master reference sheet.

I've just done something like that for 100,000 cells with formulas.

skyyang Mattabout 2 years ago#32533This comment was minimized by the moderator on the siteHi, Matt,

G. Esaie Kpadonou Sureshabout 3 months ago#38703This comment was minimized by the moderator on the siteHi, try this:**=INT((ROW()-1)/12)+908**

NB:

1-remove header or rather use ROW()-2 with header

2-the number 12 in the formula stands for your increment row range: increment after 12 rowsReplyReport00

MandyZhou G. Esaie Kpadonouabout 3 months ago#38793This comment was minimized by the moderator on the siteHello friend,

Thank you for your share. If you want to insert 908 in cell H1, Increment Number Every 5 columns, try this formula：

=INT((COLUMN(A1)-1)/5)+908

This formula can make the starting number 908 no matter where you insert the formula.

But if you input =INT((COLUMN()-1)/5)+908 in H1, the starting number will be changed to 909. So it is better to include A1 in the formula. Please have a try. Thanks.

Sincerely,

MandyReplyReport00

Yazenabout 4 days ago#40834This comment was minimized by the moderator on the siteHello,

What is the formula to add sequential numbers to every 8 rows. I don't want the rows in between to have any numbers (2-7, or 9-16, and so on).

Thank you,

Yazen skyyang20 hours ago#40887This comment was minimized by the moderator on the siteI am unable to add a screenshot or attach a file. But, here is what the excel looks like:

1 Apple 1

Apple 2

Apple 3

Apple 4

Apple 5

Apple 6

2 Orange 1

Orange 2

Orange 3

Orange 4

3 Banana 1

Banana 4

Banana 5

Banana 6

4 Melon 1

Melon 2

Melon 3

Melon 4

Melon 5

Melon 6

The numbers from 1 to 4 are manually entered. I am trying to figure out a formula that lets me add these numbers automatically to the first row category only and not every cell in that category.

Any help would be greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.Reply00There are no comments posted here yet**Leave your comments**
