We get to learn to use a loop as well to do this!

Dim counter As Integer

On Error GoTo Last
maxNumber = InputBox(&amp;quot;Enter the Max Value&amp;quot;, &amp;quot;Generate 1 to n&amp;quot;)
'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

```
