    Ading data and make excel add a number and stick with it

    Hello.

    Tried to see if someone had asked this before but dindīt see it.

    I have lets say 30 cells. in row A I have numbers from 1-30 and in row B I have names sorted a-z. my question is if I add a name in row B how can I tell Excel to put in row A the next number say 31 and stick with that name when I sort the B row later (A-Z)??

    Thank you for your time.

    Regards,
    Hemmiv

    Hi.

    Thanks for this that helped, but now when I move my cursor upp or down over the names it changes the numbers in the rate of the cursor moving upp or down over the names (hope you understand this)
