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

Cell freeze 3 rows together at a time.


Freeze a Row in Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel 2010 can freeze, or lock, a top row as you scroll down the worksheet.
For example, you may need to keep the top row of column titles visible at all times.
The "View" tab on the command ribbon contains the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A single row or a range of rows can lock through the "Freeze Top Row" or "Freeze Panes" options.

Open the Excel worksheet.
Click the top row heading.
The row heading displays a number just left of the first column of cells. The selected row appears shaded.


Click the "View" tab on the command ribbon.
Click the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A list of options appears.

Click the "Freeze Top Row" option.
A black horizontal line appears on the worksheet.
This line indicates the locked row that stays on the screen as you scroll down the worksheet.

How to find no. of rows and columns in Worksheet.


Hello everybody, this would be my first tip on FixYa.com. Number of people might not be aware how many rows and columns are there in Microsoft Worksheet.
This is how you can find out.
1. Select A1 cell in the worksheet
2. Now press Ctrl + down arrow from your keyboard, that will take you to the bottom of the row. You can find the number on the left side.
3. Again select A1 cell in the worksheet and press Ctrl + left arrow from your keyboard, that will take you to the last column of the worksheet. Now to number, just type "=column() " , without quotations, that will give you the number of the column.
Microsoft Worksheet columns is number from A to Z, again from AA to AZ, again from BA to BZ and so on till it reached IV in Excell 2003 and earlier version.
Microsoft Excel 2003 and old version has 16,777,216 cells per worksheet (65,536 rows * 256 columns).
Excel 2007 has 17,179,869,184 cells per worksheet (1,048,576 rows * 16,384 columns).

Vloop


Are you referring to the VLOOKUP function in Microsoft Excel?

I love vlookup!

Suppose you have 1 worksheet with song numbers and titles in Row 1, Cols A:B:

Song# Title
123 Love Me Tender
234 Blue Suede Shoes
345 Dixie

Another worksheet has song number and performer in Row 1, Cols A:B

Song# Performer
123 Elvis Presley
234 Carl Perkins
456 Cher

Notice there is NO performer for song number 345 in the 2nd worksheet.

Now in the 1st work sheet, cell C2 insert this LOOKUP function: =LOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 in Col C. You should get a Performer for all songs even though there is not a song number 345 in the performer worksheet.

Help me out Mr. VLOOKUP.

Insert this VLOOKUP function in cell C2 of the first worksheet: =VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B,2,0)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 Col C. You should get the performer names for the 1st 2 songs, but not for 345 Dixie. The result should be #N/A.

That means VLOOKUP could not find a DIRECT match for song 345 in the second worksheet.

That is why I prefer VLOOKUP over LOOKUP.

I have found this explaination of the VLOOKUP parameters helpful:

1. Needle (A2)
2. Haystack (Sheet2!A:B)
3. RELATIVE Col containing result (2)
4. Need DIRECT MATCH ONLY (0)

Hope this helps.

Consolidate few sheets under 1 excel


It is actually very simple on the new worksheet in the first row just type:
in cell - A1: =[Book1]Sheet1!A1
in cell - B1: =[Book1]Sheet1!B1
in cell - C1: =[Book1]Sheet1!C1
etc.

Where Book1 is the worksheet(filename) and Sheet1 is the sheet with the data, just drag down the results with the magic square and continue to do so on all of your data worksheets.

Let me know if you need more help
