 # create a formula for specific sequence

Hello

I have a list of name 1.V1.S, name 1.V2.S,..........name 1.V4.S, name 2.V1.S.......etc

how I could make a formula for the long list? Note the name is the same.

@Ashwaj, try this formula into cell A2 and drag it down:

``="name "&INT((ROW()-ROW(\$A\$1)-1)/4)+1&".V"&MOD(ROW()-ROW(\$A\$1)-1,4)+1&".S"``

Cell \$A\$1 is the header cell.

Change the header cell if you move the list to another range.

Every 4 times the first number changes, the second number being a sequence from 1 to 4, following your specific sequence: Regards,

Should you be so fortunate as to be using Excel 365, then the same formula could be written

``````= LET(
k, SEQUENCE(100,1,0),
r, 1+QUOTIENT(k, 4),
c, 1+MOD(k, 4),
CONCATENATE("name ", r, ".V", c, ".S")
)``````
