```Sieiman,

I have two equations that will work.  If you always start at row 1 (i.e.
B1=A1), then use this simplified formula: B1=offset(A1,row(A1)-1,0), and
copy the formula down.  A more generic formula, works for situation like
(B2=A2, B3=A4...) is: B1=offset(\$A\$1,(row(b1)-row(\$b\$1))*2,0).

Hope this help.

Frank

Subject: Excel Question

Hello everybody,

I'm trying to work out something in Excel but it ain't working so maybe
someone
out there can help:

I want to fill down a column, let's say column B, and have it fill down
as
follows
B1 = A(1)
B2 = A(3)
B3 = A(5)
B4 = A(7)
etc...

So I want the fill down in B to pick up the cells at column A in
increments of
2 !
