Incrementing cell ref + 9 rows
This should be very simple, yet I cannot find the solution. I have a sheet that provides summary data from a main data sheet. For example, cell A7 returns the value (text) from cell 'Data'! A30, cell A8 returns the value (text) from cell 'Data'! A39, cell A9 returns the value (text) from cell 'Data'! A48, etc. What I need, therefore, is a way to make A39 become A48 without having to manually type it in. I want to have the cell ref as Axx+9, where xx is the previous used reference + 9 rows (i.e., A39+9=A48).

Answer: Incrementing cell ref + 9 rows
To increment a cell reference by 9 rows in Excel:
Use the following formula: Code:
=INDIRECT("Data!A"&(ROW(A7)7)*9+30)
When you copy this formula down to cells A8, A9, etc., the ROW function will return the appropriate row number for each cell, and the formula will adjust accordingly. So, for example, in cell A8, ROW(A8) returns 8, so the formula becomes: Code:
=INDIRECT("Data!A"&(ROW(A8)7)*9+30) Code:
=INDIRECT("Data!A39") I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
