Default increment an integer in a formula with the fill function

Hi--
there must be a way to do this that I am missing. I want to fill a column
with incremental multiples (2-36) of a constant cell. If I type
$A$1*2
$A$1*3
and then try to fill the series, it doesn't work. Cell A1 represents a
dollar amount, I want to see that amount multiplied by # of months for 36
months in a column. Why can't I get the integer to increment by filling the
series? How should I do this??? Thanks!

use =$A$1*ROW()

depending on what the first row is, you may have to subtract 1 or 2 from ROW()
