Hi there,

 

I hope someone can help with what I'm assuming is something fairly basic......

 

I often need to write columns with say, W1, W2, W3, W4 etc etc, and I don't know how to retain the "W" bit and then add a number as I copy it down through however many rows I need it to.

 

Is this possible, and if so, how do I do it?

 

Thank you in advance.

@Schmule , you may use autofill, https://www.excel-easy.com/examples/autofill.html, other words type W1 and drag it down

Thank you so much@Sergei Baklan 

 

That is really simple but I couldn't work it out for the life of me!

 

Thank you again. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

@Schmule , you are welcome, glad to help
