# Creating a number range omitting certain numbers

Hi

I am trying to create a number range that will omit every 7th number i.e 1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,11,12,13,15,16,17,18,19,20.

I am doing this to create a number range in excess of 14000 numbers so would like an automated way to create this rather than having to manually remove every 7th number from the range.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Pete,

If you fill in the first number, you could use =IF(MOD(A1+1;7)=0;A1+2;A1+1) as from the second number to exclude the multiples of 7.

Enclosed an example.

It is possible that you should replace the ";" by ","

Hi, @pete atkinson.  @Tinn Keeper's solution is perfect which is quick and easy.

Just for discussion only, if you need an answer without checking on another cell's value, you may try

`=ROW()+INT((ROW()-1)/6)`

# Re: Creating a number range omitting certain numbers

When for the collection

`=WORKDAY.INTL(A1,1,"0000010")`

if A1=1
