I have the below sample data set with values in Column B .

In Column D I want every other value, starting at Row 1.

0   A   B   C   D   F   G   H   I   J
1       20     =B1
2       10     =B3
3       30     =B5
4       8      =B7
5       9      =B9
6       4      etc.
7       79
8       67
9       63
10      45

How can I do this with fill handle or a Formula ?


You need to use a formula:


  • It should be (ROW()*2)-1) – PeterH Aug 1 '18 at 12:33

In Cell D2 you can use the below formula, then drag down:


enter image description here


Write this formula in Cell D1 & fill down:



  • If you want even row sequence like 10, 8, 4, 67 then write following formulain D1 & fill down.


  • Adjust cell references in formula as needed.

  • Please see the example data and provide a solution implementing that. – Máté Juhász Aug 1 '18 at 15:35
  • Thanks @MátéJuhász, I got confused that OP is looking for Value from ODD & EVEN rows only so that ignored the Blanks, now edited the answer & values are in sequence. – Rajesh S Aug 2 '18 at 6:59
