    Question help getting started on nested loop to create a grid of data


    I would like to create a table in excel that contains data that would represent a grid of boxes.

    The table below represents the first 4 boxes in a 10 by 10 grid.

    I would like to use a nested do loops to create this 10 by 10 grid.

    The final cell would have a reference point of J10

    If I say that each square has length and width of 100 I believe I can created a nested
    do loop and starting at x=0, y=0 create a table that would present 100 squares each with 4 X,Y coordinates
    for a total of 100 rows and 400 total X,Y points.

    using counters and running total I should be able to build this table in a worksheet incrementally.
    This is only a basic structure I am looking for, my final code would have a starting point that could be 5,4 (x,y) as initial point for example
    Also depending on a variable the y value may dynamically change

    That detail is not necessary for this exericse, however I believe it is important to capture the last known value for x, y to create the next row instead of just multiplying by progressively larger counters
    as my final code will be dependent on changing y values.

    a simple generic strategy or working code would be greatly appreciated.

    Please see the graphic below and the table of data to generate below.


    thank you
