    put 1 in first 7 rows, put 2 in next seven rows, and so on

    Is there a less manual way to do this? I have 500 rows of data. I need to put the value "1" in the first 7 rows. I then need to put "2" in the second 7 rows, "3" in the next 7 rows, "4" and so on and so forth.

    I think this formula will do the trick. Fill down through your rows:

    =INT((ROW()-1)/7+1)

    Seems like all formulas suggested will work if the start in cell A1

    This should work in any cell

    Re: put 1 in first 7 rows, put 2 in next seven rows, and so on

    or row and number independent? something like:
    =IF(COUNTIF($A$1:A1,A1)=7,A1+1,A1)
    (currently assuming A1 has a number in it, and is the first in the sequence of 7)

    A little less overhead if the range is restricted, but put in cell A8 with numbers in up to A7 here;
    =IF(COUNTIF(A1:A7,A7)=7,A7+1,A7)

    And probably a good idea in all these cases to convert the formulas to values afterwards if they're not going to change.

    Cantosh- that worked perfectly!

    There were a few others that worked as well. I wasn't expecting so many responses. Very helpful! Thank you!
