    Numbering column with IF function

    Hello,

    I am trying to create an auto generating number column to populate if something is entered in Column D. Column D is a drop down menu, you can select option A, Option B or Option C. I want the number to go 1 to 10 for each option (30 rows all up).

    This is kind of where I was heading with it, but it's not working

    Hi Cchoma
    Is this the sort of thing you mean? I put none in the value if false.

    What am I missing here, all those formulas are the same?
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Thanks PhilB1 - it only stays as 'none' though, it doesnt seem to be adding +1 to numbers - do you suggest anything else?

    Ford - if function goes M9, M10 and M10 in the formulas

    Yes, I get that part, but no matter which 1 is selected, the "do this" part is the same.

    How do you want the numbering to look, and based on what?

    Re: Numbering column with IF function

    I was attempting to get it to number Option A 1 to 10, same for Option B and Option C. They will not be directly underneath each other in the rows however.
    It could be like:
    Option A
    Option B
    Option A
    Option C
    Option A

    in which case I wanted it to automatically number itself like
    1 Option A
    1 Option B
    2 Option A
    1 Option C
    3 Option A
    etc

    Is this do-able?
