# Incrementing a row by more than when dragging down

Hi I'm hoping that someone can help me with a solution that I've been trying to resolve for days. I'm designing a greyhound results spreadsheet to show the winning traps in each race. The results are in sets of 6 dogs per race and I'm only looking to record results where there are winners (no dead heats). In need to know how do I increment row I3 to N3 and subsequent rows when dragging down. I need it check the next set of race results and so forth. IAs I mentioned I'm only going to base it on races that involve 6 dogs so I need to be able to drag the formula down so that it will always move to the next set of 6 dogs in the proceeding race. Basically I need cell I3 to be similar to =VLOOKUP(\$I\$1,D8:E13,\$E\$1,0) when I drag down and so forth for cells J3, K3, L3, M3 & N3 and proceeding rows below this.

Many thanks in anticipation.

### Excel Facts

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