    Greetings,
    I would like to thank you in advance for taking your time and reading this post.
    Problem:
    I am trying to write a macro in excel that generates a series, e.g. from 1 to 100 and attaches them to a fixed alphanumeric prefix with a dash separating the two, e.g. : (note: Fill does not do it)

    N180-1
    N180-2
    N180-3

    N180-100

    I would then like to export these generated smi-series to a full page of labels in Microsoft word. Each label in that page gets one of the items generated by excel. e.g.:

    each label looks like the following:

    First label:
    Number: N180-1
    weight: 2KG
    Description: …..

    Second label:
    Number: N180-1
    weight: 2KG
    Description: …..

    etceteras…

    I appreciate your feedback and comments on this. Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    Steve

    You can do this with a simple formula...

    In the first column put the values

    1
    2
    3
    4
    etc...

    Then in the second column put the equation

    ="N180-" & A2 <<

    buggy thing cut half my reply off.

    anyhow, put value 1 in cell a2, and in cell b2 put

    ="180N-" & A2

    ...then fill down and copy to values.
