Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video AutoFill shortcuts for date series, one/two week intervals, EOM, and formulas, part of Excel Tips Weekly.
- [Instructor] Any time you're trying to create…a series of dates or times, there are numerous shortcuts…in Excel that are going to help.…On this worksheet, let's say, in column A,…we're about to put in a daily report.…We wanna be recording data for each day…of the year starting January 2nd.…With a date entry, if you click that cell…and point to its lower right hand corner,…that's the fill handle, if you drag downward,…you're gonna be getting next day, next day, next day.…So, if we wanna do this for the year,…we'll drag it down to about row 365, somewhere in there.…If we drag a bit too far, that's okay.…
We can chop off the end if we only wanna do this…for the current year, which would be 2017.…So, down there a bit more than we need, we see that.…We'll get rid of those.…So, any time you drag a date entry downward or rightward,…you get the next day.…I'll drag it two to the right.…We're gonna get the 15th, although we won't see it well,…and over there, the 16th, that idea, too.…Don't need those there.…So, that's easily enough handled.…
