    How to make my rows update automatically when inserting new ones?

    I have a pretty large excel file with 1000+ rows of customer data. I have a "Number" column for each customer. I'm trying to update this list by inserting row in between this list but the sequence of number breaks. Is there a way to insert a row in between so it doesnt break the sequence and the other numbers / columns get updated accordingly?

    Example:

    Row 54 has the following: No.54 / Jack / DOB / Address
    Row 55 has the following: No.55 / Tom / DOB / Address

    When I insert between Row 54&55, that new row becomes 55 and row 55 becomes row 56.

    You can use the ROW or ROWS function to return the row number, instead of typing the row number yourself.

    Hope this helps.

    If I understand correctly, you can do this a couple of ways.

    You can do it manually, after inserting whatever rows you want, select the top cell of the column, click and hold the black square in the lower right of the cell, and drag to the bottom of the data. Excel will automatically fix the sequencing.

    If you want to do it automatically with a formula, you first need the data to be in a named range or table, and use:
