Hi, I'm new to Excel, what I'm trying to do is create a worksheet with letters AAA thorough to ZZZ, I would like to use series fill to save time in typing each cell. My sample file shows the format I'm looking for. I'm using Window 10 and Excel 365.

 

Thanks in advance, Trevor

Use Flashfill in stead.

In formula:

=CHAR(TRUNC((ROW(A1)-1)/26/26,0)+65)&CHAR(MOD(TRUNC((ROW(A1)-1)/26,0),26)+65)&CHAR(MOD(ROW(A1)-1,26)+65)

 

with VBA:

insert into a module

Sub AA_AAZ()
Dim wks As Worksheet
Set wks = Worksheets("Tabelle1")
zeile = 2
For z = 65 To 90
    For s = 65 To 90
       wks.Cells(zeile, 1) = Chr(z) & Chr(s)
       zeile = zeile + 1
    Next s
Next z
End Sub

I would be happy to know if I could help.
