    Fill handle not working

    All I want to do is continue a series of numbers vertically. I've done this many times before but now the fill handle is simply repeating the same number in each cell. I have checked that the column is formatted for numbers, the fill handle is enabled and 'show paste options' is checked, but I'm not getting any options.

    G'day and welcome,

    Are you highlighting two cells then click and dragging with the fill handle or just clicking on one cell and dragging ? If its the latter you'll have to press on the CTRL button before let go of the left click mouse button. Please note that this will get you increments of one. Also this will work on days of the week also.
    Have I made you happy ??? If yes, please make me happy by pressing the http://www.excelforum.com/images/buttons/reputation-40b.png Add Reputation button in my post.
    Please don't forget to do the same to other contributors of this forum.

    Thanks
    I don't void confusion, I create it

    That's it, thanks. But I don't recall having had to do that in the past.
    Where is the Reputation button?
