Is there a way/shortcut, without using a mouse to drag cells down, to fill a range of data following a trend? I want a column with the first day of each month up to a certain date (row number). Thanks

I figured it out. First, you need to copy the cells that begin the trend you want to continue. Then, you select the range of cells in which you want your trend to continue, starting from the first data point in your trend. Then use Ctrl + D to continue the trend to the last cell you have selected.

Hope this helps to anyone who was also curious. And KPMG 1, if this was what you were alluding to, thanks.




Ctrl+D is fill down without a mouse.


That would work, I was just looking for a shortcut version rather than formulaically solving

This year I got into ultramarathon running, and more recently I learned about Skyrunning, which is like Ultra running, but you do it on really tall and steep mountains... and last night I ran my first all-night 100K race, and I loved finding my way through the dark with a headlamp, so now I'm curious if there's a sport combining spelunking and trail running. Is cave running a thing?

Excel: I have data showing the monthly actual for assets deployed after a certain date. I want to figure out how many months it took for the asset to ramp to $100M revenue for each of the individual assets (200+).

Hello All,
Excel help please. I’m trying to combine 3 tabs into 1. So on tabs a,b,c I have wire instructions that go to different places, but they all have the same field names/format. However the number of rows for each tab will vary from day to day. I need to make a fourth tab that shows all the rows from a,b,c consecutively. Because the number of rows change, I can’t find the best way to collate all the rows into one table. I can use a macro or lookups or a source formula. Please advise!


Excel VBA syntax question.
