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.

brilliant07,

Welcome to the board,

click the bottom corner of cell A1 and fill down A2 A3 etc

a little box will appear to the bottom right of the last cell you filled down to called autofill options.

From here choose fill series.

Or....


type gc 123 in A1 and highlight all the cells where you want the value to increase.

So say highlight A1 and select down to cell A10
Choose edit> fill> series> inm the type section choose autofill and press OK
