    On my spreadsheet Column B has a series of data and every so often there is a blank row (to separate the data). I would like to use column A to place a number next to each data row in column B but, do not want the blank rows to be numbered. I tried to use "FILL" but, it numbered the blank rows.

    Please advise.

    Thx,
    Noir

    How big do the gaps get? One cell? Two cells? More?

    In A2 enter and copy down:

    =IF(LEN(B2),MAX($A$1:A1)+1,"")

    where A1 is an empty cell.

    Or, if you prefer a VBA approach...

    Sub test()

    Lastrow = Range("B65536").End(xlUp).Row
    Range("A1").Select
    MyRow = ActiveCell.Row

    MyCounter = 1

    While MyRow <= Lastrow

    Range("A" & MyRow).Select
    If ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Value <> "" Then
    ActiveCell.Value = MyCounter
    MyCounter = MyCounter + 1
    End If
    MyRow = MyRow + 1

    Wend
