# Auto increment (Reconciliation of Prepaid Expenses)

Good afternoon,

I want to make an auto increment in my cell formula. The idea is every time I put a check mark , it will increase by 1.
For example:
 10/16-12/16 350,000.89 =-116,666.96*2 (\$116,666.96/ month 2 of 3) =116,666.97

<colgroup><col><col><col><col><col></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
I want it to be
 =-116,666.96*3 (\$116,666.96/ month 3 of 3)

<tbody>
</tbody>

Thanks

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

My prepaid rec spreadsheet have 12 tabs, 1 for each month. For every tab, I have different clients, some need to increase the amortization, some not.
I wonder around our forum and seeing some using INDIRECT. Do you have any idea using INDIRECT for this?

Oct2016 tab:
 1 Chipotle 3/16-2/2017 16,480.00 Amortization (12,359.97) (\$1,373.33/ month 9 of 12) 4,120.03

</tbody>
Nov2016 tab:
 1 Chipotle 3/16-2/2017 16,480.00 Amortization (13,733.30) (\$1,373.33/ month 10 of 12) 2,746.70

Why do you have different sheets for each Month?
How do show that you want to amortize for a particular month?
Can you post a concise example of a sheet?
In the quick example below G4 is Oct 1 2016

Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for your helps. Its really nice to know this DATEDIF.

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
