I'm using Column A of a spreadsheet to number some items in Column B.
I've been using Excel's automatic series-filling function, where you
drag down from the lower right corner of a cell. However, since some
of the rows in Column B are empty, and I don't want them numbered, I
have to stop numbering and manually "jump" over the blanks in Column
A. Is there a way to automatically number down in Column A, while
skipping over the blanks and continuing where I left off? I.e.
? Thanks much.

...Controlling Sequential Numbers
I have been researching using sequential numbers for invoices an

its advancement. I was wondering how I could create a button that whe
pressed or selected would advance the number by 1? Also, how could

the parent application of the document and usually a preview image.
