# Excel Problem

I have been entering data into Excel, saved it, and now each new version updates two columns of numbers. One column was the subject number, and I entered 101, 102, etc into the spreadsheet. But it automatically converts these into 404, 408, etc, and on each new copy multiplies more, I think.

I also entered a column for a person's age, and it is multiplying those numbers too! !

There must be some setting that converts the numbers based on some list setting.

Gad !

A1 = 101

A2 = A1+1

Then when you do a column fill, below A2, subsequent cells will get things like A5 = A4+1. This way, you only have to fill in two actual cells but you can populate hundreds of cells with the data you want.
