Issues with Auto Fill Options in Excel

New Contributor

Hello,

My Auto Fill Options in Excel stopped working and I don't know why. Please help! Below are steps I have already taken but unfortunately, I still do not have my Auto Fill Options available.

solve 1: File --> Options --> Advanced -->selected Enable fill handle and cell drag-and drop check box 

solve 2: File --> Options --> Advanced -->selected Enable AutoComplete for cell values check box 

I just want my Auto Fill Options back. If anyone has a solution please help.

For reference, below is what I am looking to have back.

Auto Fill Options

The fact that the numbers are not filled in automatically may be due to the filter.
If sheet you are experiencing the issue on currently has a filter applied, you won't be able to use the Fill Series feature. It will only copy the top value down.

So in order to enable or re-enable autofill series or numbers by clicking on the bottom corner right of the cell and dragging it down/across, remove whatever filter there is at the top of its table.

Otherwise you might keep getting stuck with a Quick Analysis pop up option which wont help the autofill even if you remove it from options.
