# autofill series

Excel 2003
Sheet 1: I have data in A1, A2, A3,A4,A5 ... A365
On Sheet 2, I need to copy the data from every 7th row on sheet 1 and would
like to do this with autofill.

I would appreciate any help.

Every 7 rows, starting at A1 would be:
A1, A8, A15, A22 ... etc.

Enter this *anywhere*, and copy down:

=INDEX(Sheet1!A:A,7*ROWS(\$1:1)-6)

Guido,

It's not clear to me whether you want to (a) put data in sheet 2 A1,
A8, A15, A22 etc. or (b) put data into sheet2 A1:A52 (every seventh
row of sheet 1 collapsed into sheet 2).

And if you do want (a) then what is to go in sheet 2 A2:A7, A9:A14,
A16:A21 etc.?

If you want (b), here's how. Put this in sheet2 A1:
=OFFSET(sheet1!A\$1,7*(ROW()-1),0)
Then click and drag through A52. If you're setting up your array in
sheet 2 starting somewhere other than row 1, change the "-1" in the
formula to minus your starting row number before you click and drag
down 52 rows.

Thank you. It is "b". Would you know what the equivalent of the offset
function is in spanish?

I believe it's
DESREF

The Index formula ( INDICE ) produces the same results, plus, it's
non-volatile.
