Delete a formula but leave the data.


T

trvlnmny

I am using Excel 2003.
I have a spreadsheet with a column of sequential numbers.
They were created by putting the #1 in A1 and then the formula =A1+1 in all the other cells in that column.
I now have a need to remove some of the rows but I want the remaining rows to keep sequence number that was first assigned.
When I delete a row column A of the successive rows get an Aref error.
I think what I need to do is remove the formula after the numbers have been created.
Is this something that can be done?
Thanks for any and all help.

to avoid the #ref error write in A1:
=ROW()
and copy down.

If you want to delete the formula copy your data => Paste => Paste
special => Values
