Hi, Ok this is most likely the simplest of solutions but its eluding me and driving me nuts.
I;m trying to do an autofill from this number:
24737

Its not calculatig the next number its just pasting the same number. I formated the column to make sure it was teh correct format and that did even help.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!!

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

if you highlight the cell with the 24737 and cells below it, then select Edit - Fill - Series it works

Put 24737 in a cell, click and drag the fill handle (box in lower right corner of the cell) down, and press/hold the CTRL key while you're dragging to fill consecutive numbers/series.

Holding CTRL will either fill the series if it wasn't before or will keep the number constant if it was filling before.
