    Not sure if this question has been asked or not i tried to search but i cant seem to find anything on the forum. So my question being:

    A1=1
    A2=2
    A3=3
    A4=4
    A5=5
    A6=6

    But here is the kicker if i delete one of the other numbers i want it to auto fix the rest of the numbers and continue:

    A1=1
    A2=blank
    A3=2
    A4=3
    A5=blank
    A6=4

    So any ideas? Thanks in advance for the help!

    If the sequence you want is:
    A1=1
    A2=blank
    A3=2
    A4=3
    A5=blank
    A6=4
    Then just enter:
    A1=1
    A2=blank
    A3=2
    Then select those three cells (A1, A2, and A3)
    Grab the grabpoint at the bottom right of cell A3 and drag downward.

    From that I got:
    A1=1
    A2=blank
    A3=2
    A4=3
    A5=blank
    A6=4
    A7=5
    A8=blank
    A9=6
    A10=7
    A11=blank
    A12=8
    A13=9
    A14=blank
    A15=10
    A16=11
    etc.

    Not really what i had in mind. I understand that part of the way the little box works down at the bottom right hand of the cell when selected.

    What i mean is if you delete any number no matter it if goes from 1 - 1000 it will auto correct and keep numbering the way it should.

    Cause some times i might have more spaces between numbers than others. That was just an example of a few cells. I meaning on a much larger scale.

    But thanks for the input!
