looking for clever formula to number up some data, tis easy with VBA
A
A
A
B
B
C
D
E
E
etc

as follows, so basically where data is the same increment by minor of 0.1, when different increment by major of 1, there should be no more than 9 items per group

A 1.0
A 1.1
A 1.2
B 2.0
B 2.1
C 3.0
D 4.0
E 5.0
E 5.1
etc

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

Does this help?

=IF(A2=A1,C1+0.1,ROUND(C1,0)+1)

Pasted in B2 if the data range starts with A2. Paste through your data.
