    I know that Auto Complete works in a column vertically but is there a way to make it work horizontally in a row, going across the sheet?

    Hi there,

    Not in the traditional sense, no. But if you select a cell and click and hold the bottom right corner (cursor should turn into a bold + sign), you can drage right. Alternatively, if you select the cell in question and the cell(s) to the right you want to fill, you can hit the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + R to rill right. You do not have the luxury of double clicking the bottom right corner as it will only fill down as far as the adjacent left column has contiguous data in it. Set your autofill options in Tools | Options.
