Default Formula to add +1 to a sequence


What formula would work to make the change from RE249869000xxx-00-xxxx-0001 to RE249869000xxx-01-xxxx-0001 and the next RE249869000xxx-02-xxxx-0001 and all the way to RE249869000xxx-99-xxxx-0001

For example:
="RE249869000xxx-" & TEXT(ROW()-1,"00")& "-xxxx-0001"
However, this isn't going to produce RE249869000xxx-99-xxxx-0001 on row 12. The logic for that result escapes me.

That worked perfectly

now, can we make the 0001 go to 9999 in the same formula?

Really, that's a trivial change to the formula. How about studying it instead of expecting to be spoon-fed. Otherwise, you'll learn nothing.

If D is the column, In the column where you would like the new values output enter the formula =a1+$D$1 and copy down the column. Now whatever value you put in D1 will be added to the values in column A. if you want to subtract, just enter -1 into D1.

CJustin: I have to wonder whether you bothered to read the question … or the answer in post #2.
