I know that you can type 1,2,3,4, and the select and drag the 4 numbers and Excel will automatically start numbering them as far down as you drag.

**I was wondering if it would be possible for the numbers to stop at say 50, then continue from 51 in the next column?**

So column 1 would contain the numbers 1-50, column 2 51-100, column 3 101-150, column 4 151-200 and so on, each column containing the next 50 numbers.

Sort of like this:

```
Column1 Column2
1 51
2 52
3 53
4 54
5 55
6 56
7 57
```

Thanks
