# Creating alpha numeric sequence

0

Hi There,

I would like to create a the following sequence:

1A
1B
1C
1D
1E
1F
1G
1H
2A
2B
2C
2D
etc etc up to 250H

Anyone have an idea on this?

Hi and welcome to the Forum

There may be more elegant solutions but copy this in cell A1 and copy down:

``=INT(ROW(A1)/9)+1 & INDEX({"A","B","C","D","E","F","G","H"},MAX(MOD(ROW(A1),9),1))``
Tip: You can use FillDown in the Editting portion of the Home ribbon to do that quickly- select A1 but where the cell name A1 appears (upper left above the sheet), type ":A2249" at the end and press Return (to select A1 to A2249) then press Fill/Down and the formula will copy down. With the range still selected, copy/ paste special (text only to fix the values).

Oops, just corrected my answer a second time (since I'd posted only half of the formula then the formula for the last cell!)

Did you have problems with the solution?
