Default long list

Hi.


Question for beginners, I want to make a list of consecutive numbers in column B, which will end when column A ends.
In column A there are 24000 rows, dragging the cursor all the way to the end will be difficult.
Is there a command in excel instead of pulling the cursor.
Thanks

Fill 2 first numbers (1 and 2) into column B;
Select both cells you entered numbers in;
Place cursor on lower right corner of selection (a cross is displayed);
Dobule-click. Unless there are gaps in column A, column B will be filled until end of current datarange.

ArviLaanemets answers is the simplest way and should work well, but if you do have any gaps in columns it will stop there, so as a workaround you can go to the last cell then in column b input (where 24000 is the cell you are in)

=ROW(B24000)

then copy the cell (ctrl + c) and press ctrl+shift+arrow up to select all cells above the active cell then ctrl +v to paste
