Hi all,

I need a solution to fill down a pattern of numbers like the following.

1-1
1-2
1-3
1-4

<tbody>
</tbody>

All the way to 1-40, and then switch to 2-1, 2-2, ......

2-1
2-2
2-3
2-4

<tbody>
</tbody>


This pattern will need to repeat up to 1000 times.



Any help will be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
William

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

Maybe:

=INT(ROW(A40)/40)&"-"&MOD(ROW(A40),40)+1
