Dragging a number in a cell downward to increase as it goes

I am working on a Excel Worksheet and I have a number, ie. 3710, in a cell A and row 1 and I want to drag straight down that whole A cell increasing that number by one (ie. 3711, 3712, 3713,etc). I have done this years ago and I can't remember how to do it. Please help me.

Thanks,
Bonnie

How to recover Excel lost file


How to solve some troubles with excel files you may learn from- http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/microsoft/microsoft-aa/excel/481-%E2%80%8Bexcel-files-corrupted

How to Recover an Excel File for Free

1.Check the Recycle Bin--if you've accidentally deleted the file, it should still be there unless you've emptied the bin, and you can click on the file and recover it.

2.Use the Auto Recovery Pane when you open Excel. Review the document recovery pane. If Excel has managed to recover your file, it will show in a separate pane on the left-hand side. Identify your document in the pane, then click on it and choose "Open" to open the recovered file.

3.Try manually repairing the file. Click on "File" in Excel 2003 or the "Office" button in
Excel 2007, then select "Open" and click on the arrow next to the "Open" button. Click on
"Open and Repair" and choose from two options: click on "Repair" if you want to try to completely recover the file, or click on "Extract Data" if you previously tried Step 1 and it did not work.

4.Search for the file manually on your computer. When performing a system search (click "Start" and select "Search" in Windows XP and Windows 2000, or press the "Windows" button and "F" key in Windows 7 and Vista), make sure you choose "Advanced Search Options" and then check the "System and hidden files" check box. You may be able to find your missing or corrupted file using this search: double-click on the file name in the search results to open it.

Remove page breaks in excel


We would appreciate if you share with us your Excel version as well so that we can give you a more specific solution to your issue. In the meanwhile, you can refer to the following steps to delete a manually-inserted page break in Excel 2007, Excel 2010, or Excel 2013:

(Important: You cannot delete page breaks that Excel has added automatically. Adding manual page breaks, changing the page orientation, or adjusting column widths and row heights may affect automatically-inserted page breaks.)

1. Select the worksheet that you want to modify.
2. Go to "View" tab, then go to "Workbook Views" section, and click "Page Break Preview".
(Note: You can also click "Page Break Preview " on the status bar)
(Important: If you get the "Welcome to Page Break Preview" dialog box, click "OK". To avoid seeing this dialog box every time you go to "Page Break Preview" view, select "Do not show this dialog again" check box and click "OK".)
3. Now do one of the following:
a) To delete a vertical page break, select the column to the right of the page break that you want to delete.
b) To delete a horizontal page break, select the row below the page break that you want to delete.
(Note: You cannot remove automatic page breaks)
4. Go to "Page Layout", then go to "Page Setup" section, and click "Breaks"
5. Click "Remove Page Breaks"
(Important: You can also remove a page break by dragging it outside of the page break preview area {to the left or right for vertical page breaks, or up or down for horizontal page breaks}. If you cannot drag page breaks, make sure that the drag-and-drop feature is enabled. To check the status of your drag-and-drop feature, click office button , click "Excel Options" tab, click "Advanced", go to "Editing Options" and make sure you have checked the "Enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop" option.)

To refer to a pictorial explanation of the above steps, you can refer to "Delete a manually inserted page-break" section on the following Microsoft Support Page:

How to calculate the percentage using the excel



Hide All
Percentages are calculated by using the following equation:
amount/total = percentage
Where percentage is in decimal format.
What do you want to do?


Calculate the amount if you know the total and percentage For example, if you purchase a computer for $800 and there is an 8.9% sales tax, how much do you have to pay for the sales tax? In this example, you want to find 8.9% of 800.
Example The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

  1. Create a blank workbook or worksheet.
  2. Select the example in the Help topic. Note Do not select the row or column headers.
    Selecting an example from Help
  3. Press CTRL+C.
  4. In the worksheet, select cell A1, and press CTRL+V.
  5. To switch between viewing the results and viewing the formulas that return the results, press CTRL+` (grave accent), or on the Formulas tab, in the Formula Auditing group, click the Show Formulas button.
1 2 A B Purchase price Sales tax (in decimal form) 800 0.089 Formula Description (Result) =A2*B2 Multiplies 800 by 0.089 to find the amount of sales tax to pay ($71.20) Note To convert a number in percentage format to a decimal, divide it by 100. For example, the sales tax in this example (8.9) divided by 100 is .089.
Calculate the percentage if you know the total and amount For example, if you score 42 points correctly out of 50, what is the percentage of correct answers?
Example The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

4.Goto Edit - > Paste Special
5.Check the Transponse Option

Now you have converted your column wise data to row wise data and now u can import it to your word and print mailing labels

How to get all balance sheet entries tally to excel


This is a very handy process when you're totaling or subtotaling columns. On the cell that you want the 'total' in type '=sum(column letter row number),(column letter row number). The first 'column letter row number' is where you want the first cell to be started in the total factor and the second 'column letter row number) is the last cell you want added in the total factor. The help (?) section is good at explaining formulas. Hope this helps, keep this process handy if you use Excel much because it'll be helpfull each time you subtotal or total columns.

I'm not sure what you mean exactly...

Do you want to sort an existing excel worksheet?
Or do you want to change a cell value depending on the class of students.
You can use if for the latter.
Otherwise just use sorting in excel.

Please explain what you want to do exactly...
