## Sequencing and numbering of batches in excel

**Question:** I have two volumes which keeps on varying in L1 & L2 head. This is the only info i get everyday.

Now i just want under each head i.e. L1 & L2 the respective volume whether it's 4000 or any other figure say 4311 etc gets automatically divided into batches of 250 each as shown in Column A and col. D for L1 & L2 heads respectively.

If the bal volume left which is not equal to 250 then it shld appear in last row under respective head e.g. 120 in col A.

Other requirement is those batches get numbered automatically but the numbering should remain continuous when it goes from L1 to L2 head. it should not commence from 1 for L2 head. The numbering shld be done for 250 volume batches and in the last it should number for the batches not equal to 250 volume.

Hi Oscar,

Can you help me with my problem?

I have 2 columns named customer (A1) and OR No. (B1).

Under customer are names enumerated below them. opposite the name of customers are OR No. issued to various customers.

OR No. is in broken sequence.

My question is, how will I insert the rows for the corresponding missing OR numbers?

Example:

(A1) (B1)

Customer OR No.

customer 1 1

customer 2 2

customer 3 5

customer 4 7

customer 5 8

customer 6 10

customer 7 11

customer 8 13

customer 9 14

customer 10 15

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Formula in cell B1:

=IF(A1<>"",1,"")

Formula in cell B2:

=IF(A2<>"",IF(B1=15,1,B1+1),"")

Copy cell B2 and paste down as far as needed.
