Auto-number Records And Columns In An Excel Database
April 9, 2021 - by Bill Jelen
Challenge: You want to build formulas to automatically serially number records and column headers in a database to which AutoFilter is applied and in which selected columns are hidden.
In the database shown in Figures 65 and 66, the records as well as columns are numbered normally. Figure 66 illustrates how the database appears when AutoFilter is applied to show records for total marks > 335 and the columns for Chemistry and Math are hidden. You want to auto-number the records (1 through 7 in this example) and column headers (1 through 5 in this example) by using formulas.
