Can't figure out how to create a list of: 1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2...
the drag-down menu makes the list as follows:

o Type "1" into your first five cells.
o In the sixth cell, type "=", click on the first cell (top of the list), type "+1", and press Enter.
o Now fill just that sixth cell down the remaining range.

Alternatively you could use a formula based on the row number. If your range starts in row 1,
would work.  You would have to modify this if your range starts in a later row.

You will now have the results you desire, but some will be as formulae, not as numbers. If you wish to have numbers instead, copy the range and paste it back over itself - but using Edit | Paste Special... (or right-click | Paste Special... or Ctrl+Shift+V) instead of ordinary Paste. In the Paste Special dialogue, remove the tick from "Paste all" if necessary, and ensure that Numbers is ticked but Formulas is not ticked.

I trust this helps.
