Automatically Numbering Rows in Excel

To automatically number rows in Excel, you can use the ROW function. This function returns the row number of a cell. For example, if you wanted to automatically number rows in column A, you could use the following formula:

=ROW()

This would return the row number of the cell in which the formula is entered. You can then copy and paste this formula down the column to automatically number each row.

If you want to skip a certain number of rows, you can use the ROW function in conjunction with the OFFSET function. The OFFSET function returns a reference to a cell that is offset a certain number of rows and columns from another cell. For example, if you wanted to skip every other row, you could use the following formula:

=OFFSET(A1,ROW()*2,0)

This would return a reference to cell A1, which is two rows above the cell in which the formula is entered. You can then copy and paste this formula down the column to automatically number every other row.
