I wanted to insert consecutive numbers in a cool way. And the way I found was to insert numbers using Macros in Excel!
We get to learn to use a loop as well to do this!
Make sure your Excel has the Developer Tab enabled following this tutorial.
I explain how you can do this below step by step!
What does it do?
Asks for a max number, then generates numbers from 1 to the max number
Copy Source Code:
Sub InsertNumbers() Dim maxNumber As Integer Dim counter As Integer On Error GoTo Last maxNumber = InputBox("Enter the Max Value", "Generate 1 to n") 'Generate all the numbers For counter = 1 To maxNumber ActiveCell.Value = counter 'Move one cell below ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate Next counter Last: Exit Sub End Sub
STEP 1: Go to Developer > Code > Visual Basic
STEP 2: Make sure Sheet1 is selected, paste in your code and Select Save. Close the window afterwards.
STEP 3: Let us test it out!
Select any cell that you want to insert numbers on. Go to Developer > Code > Macros
Make sure your macro is selected. Click Run.
We want to insert 10 numbers. Type in 10.
With that, you are now able to insert consecutive numbers using macros!
