skip every other row when copying formula
I would like to be able to skip every other row when copying a formula. If I
have data in column A for example, and I want to use a simple formula in column B like "=a1"(in cell b1) and "=a2"(in cell b3) and "=a3"(in cell b5) and so on. I have tried using the drag and fill but I end up missing cells.

Assume your data in column A is:
11 22 33 44 55 66 77 88 99 11 is in cell A1 and 99 in in cell A11 In B1 put =A1 In cell B2 put: =IF(ISNUMBER(B1),"",INDIRECT("A"&INT(ROW(B2)/2)+1)) Then drag it down. In cell B1 you get 11 (obviously) B2, B4, B6 and B8 are blank B3 shows 22 B5 shows 33 B7 shows 44 and B9 shows 55  Andy Wiggins FCCA www.BygSoftware.com Excel, Access and VBA Consultancy  "RHD3" wrote in message ...

I think you want ...
A B 1 =A1 2 3 =A2 4 5 =A4 if that is the problem, You just copy B3, and paste it to remaining cells in B That's it. *** Please do rate *** "RHD3" wrote: I would like to be able to skip every other row when copying a formula.

Type formula in the first cell and nothing in the cell below.
Select these two cells; use copy Move to Third cell and select to end of range; use Paste best wishes  Bernard V Liengme www.stfx.ca/people/bliengme remove caps from email "RHD3" wrote in message ...

Thanks for the reply. It works for numbers, but my cell "entries" are text.
I can't get it to work with text. My column A is similar to: \\test\ie\v03\0123 \\test\ie\v03\0456 etc. "Andy Wiggins" wrote: Assume your data in column A is: 11 22 33 44 55 66 77 88 99 11 is in cell A1 and 99 in in cell A11 In B1 put =A1 In cell B2 put: =IF(ISNUMBER(B1),"",INDIRECT("A"&INT(ROW(B2)/2)+1)) Then drag it down.

Try:
=IF(LEN(B1)0,"",INDIRECT("A"&INT(ROW(B2)/2)+1))  Andy Wiggins FCCA www.BygSoftware.com Excel, Access and VBA Consultancy  "RHD3" wrote in message ... Thanks for the reply.
