Hi all...

I have a problem... i would like to enter the words "Material" into a selected range with a 1,2,3,4, or 5 after it .. i.e. "Material 2"

I have setup a shortcut key to enter "Material 1 ... but was thinking rather than having 5 shortcut keys .. if i had a box pop up and ask for a number... so that it added the word Material to the selected number....


any help greatly appreciated

Hi
you don't need any formula or program. Built in function - auto fill will do. Enter "material 1" in any cell and hold the autofill handle (plus sign) at the right hand bottom of the cell and drag it down.
