    Drag Formula's to continue a sequence

    Good morning all,

    I'm trying to use the dragging ability (little black box at the bottom of a cell when selected) to continue a formula sequence, and the formula refers to another sheet.

    For example:
    In A1, =Dets!A20
    In A5, =Dets!A21
    In A9, =Dets!A22

    And so on. My current issue is I can select A1 - A12 (A2-4, 6-8, & 10-12 are blank) and drag down, but my sequence keeps skipping.

    For example:
    A1 =Dets!A20
    A5 =Dets!A21
    A9 =Dets!A22
    A12 =Dets!A41
    A15 =Dets!A42

    in a1, a5 and a9 put
    =INDEX(dets!A:A,CEILING(ROW()/4,1)+19)
    select a1:a12 fill down
