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

Final Result:
